Good blade
Cuts Trex beautifully! It seems to disperse heat so no melting or buildup on blade. I've cut wood with it, too, of course. Its great for that as well. Rips 3/4" plywood and MDF with no problem and almost makes a glue line. Does well cutting 1/4" acrylic, too.

It's just ok.
I did not use this blade for cutting composite decking, so this review may not be helpful. I mounted this 10" blade on my Rigid portable table saw and used it to rip plywood and 3/4" pine. It cut ok, but didn't cut as easily nor smoothly as other thin kerf fine tooth blades that I've used. I also did some crosscutting of pine on the table saw with the same results. The blade is a good blade for the price, but if you're looking for a smooth finish on ripping and crosscutting wood, there are much better blades out there.

Great blade for finish cuts on Trexx
I have to say, I was a bit skeptical that this blade would really produce a better finish. I had recently installed some trexx on my back porch using diablo blades on my miter saw and portable table saw, and it produced what I considered to be good results at the time. So how much better could it be? I was planning on installing trexx on my front porch and decided this is a great chance to give the new blade a try. I will say I was impressed with the quality and finish this blade left on end cuts. What I thought was a good finish during my last project now looked shabby compared to the finish this blade produced. I didn’t notice any difference in cut speed versus the non trexx blade so for me the results were the finish. Considering the large cost investment when installing trexx, it makes a lot of sense to spend a few dollars more on a blade that is going to give you superior results. If you are planning to install ay composite decking, you will not be disappointed with this blade.

Fast, Clean, no-melt cuts
We had several home projects looming that involved cutting laminates and man-made plastics like fencing, counter-tops and some built ins. That's why I thought it was a good idea to invest in this blade. GLAD I DID! In the past, I had bad experiences with normal blades, even from quality manufacturers, when cutting plastic-based materials. Freud has solved the problem! This blade stays cool and has the right tooth-geometry to make clean cuts. I no longer have to cut oversize then sand edges. Now I can cut right to the line and assemble or install. That is a HUGE time-saver and makes these honey-do projects a lot more fun! If you plan to use your table saw or miter saw for cutting any manmade materials... try these blades! They make life better.

Fast Clean Cuts
First thing I noticed is that this blade made super clean cuts in some thin Maple veneer plywood I was cutting for cabinet backs on an island. When cutting with the grain there were no splinters. This blade made a cut so clean it looked like it was cut with a razor. They claim that it runs cooler and I tend to agree. When cutting some 1 1/2" thick Oak for countertop trim it never left a burn mark and there was never a smell of anything burning. It also seems quieter when cutting thicker woods. Since this is a very thin kerf blade I can cut thicker stock on my table saw without bogging the motor down. 2" thick Oak is an easily cut. This blade also makes very nice clean sides to dado's. Some other blades leave lots of splinters but this blade doesn't, even when cutting across the grain it only leaves a few small splinters that can be removed by wiping them off.

Cuts trex decking nicely
I installed this blade in my miter saw and it seems to cut a little more cleanly than the other blade I had on it (fine tooth freud blade). I have not cut much with the blade so I can't say how well it will hold up by I don't see why it shouldn't last a good long time if you are cutting clean material. Finding the right cutting speed seem to be the important thing, to slow and the plastic melts, too fast rough cut and dangerous. Also it seems to cut most work fine too.

Slick
Finish on blade is very slick & blade cuts very smooth without binding. If using miter saw feed fairly slow to prevent teeth filling & saw jumping. Cuts great on other wood products also.

Great for Plywood also
This blade is designed for plastic. However I use it for plywood and fine cutting. It is well balanced and does not vibrate. Stays cool and has a very small kerf (minimal wasted wood).

A worthwhile purchase
I started using this blade near the end of a deck construction project and found it performed flawlessly. Since I'd been using an old blade with fewer teeth I couldn't make a fair comparison. The Trex blade definitely made a smoother cut, but how much that was due to the blade geometry I could not tell. Considering the cost of a Trex deck, any small incremental cost for a Trex specific blade would be money well spent in my opinion.

blade did not offer any special features or stay sharp cutting composite decking boards
I cut more linear feet of the composite wood with a regular higher end 40 tooth blade than what I was able to cut with this special blade.
