Blades With A Contour Shape
One of the task in fabrication is cutting out vanities. Making bowl cuts on natural and engineerd stone materials is made easier by using a contour blade. Contour blades have slight curve to them so you can make rounded cuts on hard materials. We have a numbe of contour diamond blades available for this and other tasks. In fact, we have various contour blades made for use on specific materials.
Contour Quartzite Blades
Quartzite surfaces that require circular cutouts or rounded edges touched up are what the White Lion contour quartzite blades are designed for. Natural quartzite is a ver hard material so having a diamond blade that is up for the task is important. Although we call this a contour quartzite blade, it will cut other hard materials like natural sandstone, granite and quartz or engineerd stone as well.
Contour Granite Blades
Granite is among the natural stone materials that lives at the hard side of the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Cutting sink holes in natural granite takes, not only skill, but also the right tooling. You can choose to use a 5 inch granite contour blade or a 6 in contour blade for granite. Either of these contour granite blades will also cut engineered stone or quartz too.
Contour Quartz Blades
Engineered stone or quartz surfaces don't have to give you fits when you are cutting holes for sinks. Smoothing curved edges on quartz countertops or creating sink openings will require a blade that travels effortlessly around the curved edge. Smoothing out edges after cutting is another use for a quartz contour blade. Just because we are calling this contour blade a quartz blade, don't think its uses stop there. Feel free to try it out on other materials like granite, and other hard sotne too.
Contour Marble Blades
Marble vanities are among the uses for diamond contour blades. Calcareous materials like marble, travertine, limestone, and onyx are considered soft stone materials. Using a contour blade for cutting sink holes in calcareous stone is a way to get good results. Yet, for the best results you'll want to use a marble contour blade. Blades for calcareous material are deigned to allow for the debris to be automatically cleaned out from between the blade and the stone during use.
