Cold Saw Blade Coolant

Did you know that a cold saw blade coolant is primarily used to increase tool life and provide an excellent surface finish? Let’s take a step back though and take a look at what cold saw blade is. 

A cold saw blade is a circular blade to cut metal. The name originated from how the heat is transferred back into the blade, and not the object being cut. When cut, the metal is cold, unlike other saws which heat the blade. 

What is a Coolant for Cold Saw Blades?

A soluble coolant is a huge part of the cutting process and should always be used. Contrary to belief, it isn’t what actually keeps the blade cool.  However, as mentioned above, it does increase the life of the blade because it helps keep the teeth sharp. It is also essential for protecting the machine and blade from corrosion. 

Benefits of Coolant

There are many benefits of using a coolant for your cold saw blade, including:

  • Improves the integrity of the cutting service;
  • Prolongs the life of the blade;
  • Lubricates between the cutting blade and the metal piece;
  • Prevents corrosion;
  • Removes chips from the surface of the cutting area; and
  • Eliminates thermal stress.

3. Now Enter the Exact Length in (mm) (Made to your Order)

Length is not correct, changed to maximum allow length.

4. Select the TPI (Teeth Per Inch)

The number of teeth per inch (TPI) defines the pitch of the blade and can vary from 1 to 32 tpi.

On some blades there are different pitches on the same blade. You must select the correct tpi for the thickness of material you are cutting. If the corrrect tpi is not chosen the blade life will be dramatically shortened.

The general rule of thumb is: For wood and soft materials aim ffor 3-6 teeth in the work piece.
