Three trumps for plastics
The growing use of plastic panels means that carpenters face new challenges when using a sizing saw. Only saw blades designed especially for plastics ensure high quality and a long edge life. LEUCO offers three circular saw blades that provide a good solution for every type of plastic.
With three circular saw blades, carpenters overcome challenges that arise from the growing use of plastics in furniture and kitchens. After all, plastics differ quite significantly. For instance, thermoplastics such as polycarbonate and polystyrene easily become too warm and melt when sawed, while thermosets tend to chip. With three saw blades from LEUCO, almost all plastics encountered in carpentry can be processed: Plastics (item no. 193109), G5-System (item no. 192794) and Solid Surface (item no. 193133).
Using these three saw blades ensures easy trimming of plastic panels and quite good to very good results. It is thus advisable for carpenters to have these blades always available and ready for immediate use.
The sizing saw blade "G5" provides the highest quality when sawing thin polycarbonate panels, twin-wall sheets, for instance. Lightweight and brittle panels of extruded polystyrene can also be processed very well with this saw blade. They are commonly found as the Danopren and Efyos brands.
The "Plastics" saw blade processes, for instance, all transparent PMMA panels (e. g. Plexiglas), as well as transparent polystyrene panels (Wattolene). It also saws solid polycarbonate (PC) panels, available under names such as Lexan and Makrolon.
"Solid Surface" is a saw blade designed for hard and abrasive thermosets. Thus, high-pressure laminates (HPL) can be sawed quickly and with high quality with this blade. It is ideally suited for the mineral-based panels known as Solid Surface, after which LEUCO also named this saw blade. Such panels are available under brand names such as Avonite, Corian, Hi-Macs and Varicor.
