Cold Saw Blade Coolant

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.
