Makita introduces new TCT multipurpose saw blades

  • 12 Aug 2019

Makita has introduced a new range of Tungsten Carbide Tipped (TCT) Multipurpose Saw Blades which can cut aluminium, MDF, PVC and laminated chipboard.

The TCT Multipurpose Saw Blades are available in fifteen variations, from 160mm x 60T to 355mm x 100T. The new range contains options that are suitable for both circular saws and mitre saws, with bores ranging from 20mm to 30mm. Blades are available with kerfs that range from 2.2mm to 3.0mm and in a variety of thicknesses from 1.4mm to 2.2mm. Regardless of size, each saw blade has a rake of 5°.

This new range of blades has been manufactured to a high standard to ensure they offer the best performance, durability and they strong enough to easily cut through aluminium; and equally effective when cutting MDF, PVC and laminated chipboard.

The saw blades are also fitted with specialist Triple Chip Grind (TCG) teeth. Unlike traditional teeth, TCG teeth alternate between a combination of flat and trapezoidal teeth to provide the most effective cut. The trapeze tooth cuts out the middle of the kerf, which is then followed by a standard flat top grind (FTG) tooth, which cleans out the corners; hence, creating three separate cuts. What’s more, because of the alternating cuts from the TCG design, the life of these blades is extended when compared to a standard blade used for cutting different types of materials.

Plus, the TCT Multipurpose Saw Blades will cut materials up to 15% quicker than equivalent alternatives, helping tradespeople to work faster on-site.
