Stone Blades Designed for Angle Grinders
Stone blades for use on angle grinders come in a variety of styles and they range in diameter sizes. Here, we will mention some of the specific types of angle grinder blades. All sorts of materials may be cut or shaped using angle grinders including:
- Engineered Stone
- Landscape Blocks
Segmented Rim Angle Grinder Blades
Because blades heat up when they are used to cut stone and other hard materials, some angle grinder blades are designed to dissipate heat. one of the ways heat is released from the blade is by fashioning the blade with slots (or gaps) in the rim. Blades with this design are known as segmented blades. When the blades is being used, the gaps in between the segments allow air to pass over the rim of the blade, allowing it to cool.
Turbo Rim Blade for Angle Grinders
Turbo rim angle grinder blades also have a cooling mechanism built into them. Turbo blades are designed with holes in the body of the blade. These holes, like the slots mentioned in the description of the segmented blades, move air as it is being used. Additionally, the rim of turbo blades has grooves (or channels) cut into the segments. Even though these channels do not go completely through the segment, they do allow for air to pass through them as they are cutting.
Continuous Rim Blades
Another type of diamond blade that is used to cut materials using angle grinders is the continuous rim blades. Continuous rim blades for angle grinders are just like
all continuous rim blades in that they have no slots or grooves in the rim. Because of this, they are always used for wet cutting. The cuts made by continuous rim blades are very smooth and they work very well for cutting brittle materials like ceramic or porcelain.
