Tct Saw Blade
TCT stands for tungsten carbide tips, and it is these carbide blade tips that give TCT saw blades their exceptional ability to effortlessly cut through any kind of wood, laminate, or plastic. The tungsten carbide coating extends the life of the blade and prevents premature blade wear while enabling the teeth to rapidly and efficiently cut through wood. This is due to the fact that tungsten carbide is a chemical composition that is twice as rigid as steel. Use the appropriate blade if you’re going to be cutting wood. If not, the cut won’t be clean, the blade will wear out rapidly, requiring repeated saw blade changes, and the cuts will be of poor quality.
ADVANTAGES OF USING A TCT CUTTING BLADE
Whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist, using a TCT saw blade has numerous benefits that make them an excellent investment.
TCT DeWalt or Makita saw blades have the initial advantage of being suitable for heavy-duty applications in a variety of industries. TCT blades are used in a variety of applications, like as :
- Cutting all types of wood, such as plywood, MDF, birch ply, melamine-faced chipboard, oak, and all kinds of soft and hard wood
- chopping up plastic
- removing the laminates
TCT blades are among the most adaptable kinds of saw blades since they are excellent at cutting both plastic and wood. It’s worthwhile to get one only for this reason.
Cold saws are often used to describe TCT blades. This indicates that they may maintain their sharpness for a longer period of time due to the carbide tips as well as the direct control you have over the feed rate and cutting speed. By keeping this in mind, you may increase the blade’s lifetime and lessen the need for replacements more often. In actuality, it is believed that the tungsten carbide coating results in a lifetime that is four times longer than an ordinary saw blade.
Using the appropriate blade for your circular saw will result in a cleaner result. When it comes to TCT blades, they offer:
- no production of dust
- reduced spark production
- less burr production
- lessening of the discoloration
You can make more precise cuts using the aforementioned method without the associated mess or hassle. Working with a TCT saw blade is frequently safer than working with other types of blades that produce sparks or dust because there aren’t any burrs, sparks, or dust. Despite this, you should continue to use circular or mitre saws safely by donning safety goggles and adhering to best practices.
TCT SAW BLADE SIZES
When selecting the right saw blade, size is a crucial consideration. TCT blades are offered in a variety of sizes. As a general rule, the blade’s finish will be rougher the less teeth it has, even though the cut might be made more quickly. Rennie Tool offers a wide selection of TCT saw blade sizes that are compatible with common circular and handheld saws produced by companies like Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, and Festool, among others. An ideal circular blade size for a handheld wood saw is 165mm. Depending on your requirements, we offer this blade with 24, 48, or 60 teeth. A 20mm borehole and a 16mm reduction ring are also included with this blade. The 185mm blade, in contrast, has four tooth options: 24, 40, 60, and 80. Three reduction rings measuring 16mm, 20mm, and 25mm are also included. Our TCT saw blade selection goes up to 305mm for larger applications; this option has 40 or 80 teeth, a 3mm blade thickness, a 30mm borehole, and reduction rings measuring 16mm, 20mm, and 25mm. Again, due to the versatility of this type of blade, the wide range of sizes means you can find the best blade for your needs.
