What are the differences between saw blade material types?
Saw blades are made from multiple materials depending on their purpose. Standard saw blades are usually made of steel. These blades are ideal for cutting through wood. Saws made of high-speed steel or HSS are stronger than a standard steel blade. This allows for the blade to stay sharp longer. Saw blades that are tipped with carbide are ideal for cutting tile. Diamond blades are tipped with synthetic diamond particles that strengthen the blade to cut through metal. Within DIABLO Saw Blades, blade materials include Carbide, BiMetal, Diamond, High Carbon Steel and High Speed Steel.
