CTS Offers New Carbide Tipped Blades for Cutting Tough Stainless Steel Amazingly, new technology in carbide circular saw blades now makes cutting stainless steel products as easy and as fast as cutting a piece of wood. Smaller grain structure in the teeth keeps the teeth sharp longer. Such durability extends the life of the blade, and in turn, reduces the contractor’s costs. Cutting stainless steel with carbide versus abrasive blades results in minimal sparks, reducing the risk of fire. Plus, far less dust is created with carbide. With minimal sparks and less dust, carbide-tipped blades are ideal for use in healthcare projects and other specialty environments. Along with hospital MRI rooms requiring the use of non-ferrous metals, other building types, such as clean rooms, food preparation facilities and even wastewater treatment plants, are candidates for carbide-tipped blades. Within the last year, hundreds of stainless steel studs were cut as part of the exterior remodeling of the Renaissance Center in Detroit. These blades were selected because of their speed of cutting. It took only 8 seconds to cut a 7/8-inch threaded stud. Secondary deburring was also eliminated. Carbide-tipped blades are available from Construction Tool & Supply Co., Warren. Stop by Booth No. 126 at the Michigan Construction & Design Tradeshow. Please visit CTS – Construction Tool & Supply Co.’s website at or call (586) 757-3330 or email
