When you have a tile project that requires speed and precision, you’re going to need tile cutting blades you can depend on. Cost Cutting Blades has built a reputation for providing durable, dependable diamond blades that can stand up to the challenge.
But it isn’t always clear which blade will work best for a given job. And, to avoid mistakes that could end up costing you time and money, you need to be sure you’ve got the blades that are made specifically for the material you will be working with. Learn more about the selection of tile cutting diamond blades we offer to professionals. And find out what features make each one best suited for its intended purpose.
While our blades offer incredible durability, you need to make sure that the one you choose is correct for the material you’re cutting. All of our tile cutting options use diamond blades, but each type features a design that makes it ideal for working with materials of a particular hardness or softness. There are three main kinds: porcelain, ceramic, and glass. Explore the differences between them to see which is the best choice for your project.
Porcelain is considered to be the hardest tile material. This is why it requires a porcelain tile cutting diamond blade for effective cutting. It’s best not to try cutting porcelain with blades that aren’t specifically intended for it, since this will likely result in damaging the material as well as the blade itself. And, in addition to effectively cutting porcelain, these blades can also be used on ceramic, engineered stone, granite, natural stone, and marble tiles.
By comparison, ceramic tile cutting diamond blades are just below the hardness of porcelain tile cutting blades. That being said, both can be used to cut ultra-hard materials. But, ceramic tile blades are not hard enough to be the ideal choice for working with porcelain tiles. However, because they are designed specifically for use with ceramic tiles, they offer better durability (over porcelain blades) when working with this material. And they can also cut tiles made of engineered stone, granite, marble, and natural stone.
Unlike the other two types, glass tile cutting diamond blades are designed for use with one material only. Since glass is the softest tile material, it is especially prone to chipping and cracking. The diamonds in glass cutting blades are softer than the others. This allows the user to cut the material more carefully. They offer enhanced precision and lessen the chances of accidentally damaging the tile with use.
