Arbortech caulking blades

arbortechcaulking_smallArbortech introduces new caulking blades that offer combined cutting and grinding action for faster caulk removal. These patented and uniquely shaped carbide-tipped blades are used with the AS170 brick and mortar saw to powerfully remove caulking while simultaneously grinding both sides of the expansion joint. This leaves a clean surface ready for re-caulking. It replaces traditional methods, such as the pipe knife or the single-bladed machines, both of which require cutting both sides of the caulking before grinding the sides to remove residual material.

Arbortech introduces new caulking blades that offer combined cutting and
grinding action for faster caulk removal. These patented and uniquely
shaped carbide-tipped blades are used with the AS170 brick and mortar
saw to powerfully remove caulking while simultaneously grinding both
sides of the expansion joint. This leaves a clean surface ready for
re-caulking. It replaces traditional methods, such as the pipe knife or
the single-bladed machines, both of which require cutting both sides of
the caulking before grinding the sides to remove residual material.

The caulking blades save time by reducing the traditional four-step
process to one step. The new caulking blades make the AS170 ideal for
removing caulking from between concrete panels in tilt-up constructed
buildings, parking lots and anywhere that caulking is used on outside
panels.

“The new caulking blades make the innovative AS170 brick and
mortar saw even more versatile because it now provides contractors with
the ability to remove caulk as well as cut mortar,” said Henry
Schweitzer, national sales manager of Arbortech U.S.A.

The new caulking blades are available in 1/2-inch, 1-inch and 2-inch
sizes to cover a range of caulk-removal projects. The 1/2-inch blades
remove caulking in joints that are 5/16-inch to 1/2-inch wide, the
1-inch blades remove caulking in joints that are 1/2-inch to 1-inch wide
and the 2-inch blades remove caulking in joints that are 1-inch to
2-inches wide. The caulking blades are constructed of carbide and steel
for durability and longevity.

The AS170 brick and mortar saw’s patented cutting technology uses an
unique orbital cutting motion with two forward facing blades that
combine to perform both a hammering and a cutting action that allows for
the user to have clear visibility and the ability to accurately cut
square and deep.
