Asphalt is mainly used in road construction. When mixed with aggregate contents, it serves as a binder to create asphalt concrete. There are a lot of benefits why asphalt is widely used in construction of roads, parking lots and airport tarmacs. For one, asphalt is a low-cost building material. It is less expensive in terms of the time it takes to complete construction.
The sand in asphalt never bonds as firmly so cutting through it can be extremely abrasive that is why you need to have the right kind of diamond blade to use. When choosing the best asphalt blade for your cutting needs, undercutting protection is one of the most important factors to consider. Because asphalt is softer, it requires diamond blades with a hard bond. Asphalt and green concrete blades cutting come in both wet and dry selections. A dry blade has a softer bond than a wet asphalt-cutting blade.
Diamond blades are not limited to asphalt and green concrete cutting. It comes in different varieties that would fit your construction requirements. Diamond blades such as general purpose blades, multi-purpose blades, concrete blades, masonry blades, brick blades, block blades, demolition blades, ductile iron blades, tuck point blades, glass blades, porcelain blades are just some of the many selections that you can choose from.
They vary in design. Some diamond blades are rock-hard and stable that provide chip–free cutting while others contain spaces between segments that offer faster cutting. Knowing the right blade for the job is very crucial.
Asphalt is such a popular modern day material for roads due to its recyclability. The portion that you cut with a diamond blade can still be used over and over, and its life cycle never stops. Asphalt roads can be dug up and then re-used again. While other diamond blades can get the job done, nothing beats using an asphalt diamond blade that is especially designed for asphalt to reap the benefits of a perfect cut.
