However today is characterized by inventions that happen constantly. The aim of all inventions made is to make work easier for us. The construction industry is not immune to this. In a construction, there is a lot of cutting that goes on and having good tools for this makes this hard task easier. There have been several cutting blades used for cutting hard material such as tiles, clay and concrete. The types of blades are being used in this case include diamond and abrasive blades.
In the past, abrasive blades have been used a lot in the cutting tasks of constructions. However, them want blades have now taken over to becoming the preferred choice of the two. This choice is really not a matter of quality but about the advantages that each of them offers. The question we seek to answer is what makes diamond blades the better choice?
The wear and tear of the cutting blade is one of the first considerations that are made when making a choice. This is mainly because this factor has an influence on the life of the blade. It is no surprise that people prefer to get things that will last longer. This is why a lot of construction companies go for diamond blades. Picture this, when the blade is cutting into these hard materials while spinning at a very high speed, the blades tend to wear off. Diamond blades are made up of synthetic diamond crystals and hence do not wear to produce the cut unlike abrasive blades which wear off very easily.
Diamond blades are safe to use in this is just another added advantage of using them. This safety, is insured by the strength of the diamond not to break apart during use and therefore they do not in danger the lives of the person who’s using them or the other people who are working around the area. The abrasive blades on the other hand are not like this and tend to shatter during use therefore causing injuries and deaths for numerous people. The other safety advantage of diamond blades is that during use, they do not emit any harmful substances. Abrasive blades do however emit substances like silicone and carbide fibers which are considered dangerous substances. Given these facts, it is clear that when it comes to safety, diamond blades are the way to go.
There still more advantages to diamond blades such as cost-effectiveness. This blade is cost-effective and good-quality too. In addition to that, when it comes to performance the give very clean and precise cuts. It is clear from the reasons given above with all the advantages they have to offer that the better cutting blade is the diamond one.
