Husqvarna Diamond Blade Guide
Husqvarna diamond blades are designed to offer increased performance when operating handheld cutters, floor saws, tile saws and masonry saws.
Different blades are designed for cutting different materials, characterised by the shaped segments which affect the point of impact. The numbering system between S25 and S85 designates blades that are suitable for cutting natural stone, tiles, concrete and asphalt. Beyond this scale for materials, Husqvarna Diamond Blades have a simple three-tiered system which represents a balance between value and performance.
Diamond is known to be one of the world's hardest and most durable materials, but with that comes a very high value. It is this diamond content that gives diamond blades their excellent strength, and the strategic placement of the diamonds ensures the most efficient use of this material. If every cutting blade was made entirely of diamond, they would be incredibly strong, but this is not efficient use of the premium material considering its cost.
Some applications and projects are more demanding than others, so the top end of this performance scale needs a blade with more diamond content. When a very good quality blade is required but the project at hand does not demand prolonged or repeated performance, a blade with less diamond content can be used with less initial expense. Therefore, Husqvarna's three tiers basically follow a bronze, silver and gold scale. To view the whole blade recommendation chart click here, otherwise you can see each range below:
