Sintered (Metal Bonded) Blades            vs.            Electroplated Diamond Blades

- Multiple layers of diamond                                                                - Single layer of diamond

- Stands up well under aggressive conditions                        - Cannot be dressed (in most cases)

- Super smooth finish                                                      - Least Expensive

- Longest lasting blade                                                    - Shortest Blade Life

- Very Universal                                                             - Cannot be used for a number of materials

- Most cost effective

FREE Advice / Consultation >>>

Sintered (metal bonded) blades are the latest technology available in diamond blades. And represent the best value and

formance per cut. They are the best investment you can make. Although they will cost you more than electroplated blades,

metal bonded blades will more than pay for themselves in terms of:


Longer Life

Electroplated blades cost less, and at first glance may seem like the most cost effective alternative. However, they will cost you

more in the long run. Depending on material and application, metal bonded blades will last significantly more than 100

electroplated diamond blades put together. You can't get more life out of any other blade. Instead of constantly putting blades

on and off the saw, you will save money by using one blade. This means cost per cut, metal bond blades are the best choice.

More Consistent performance

Electroplated blades have only one layer of diamond coated on metal core. Diamonds sit only on the surface. When this

diamond portion is peeled off, the blade will slow down, cut on the side (not cut straight) or stop working (cutting) altogether. 

Metal bonded blades are sintered and impregnated inside the metal matrix. Multiple layers of diamonds are impregnated inside 

the metal matrix. Unlike electroplated blades, metal bond blades wear evenly, and are known for their consistency. You will get

consistent cutting speed, and overall consistent performance from sintered (metal bonded) blades.
