June 23, 2010 – Irwin Tools has developed Polycrystalline Diamond Tipped blades specifically for cutting fibre cement boards.

The company says that the Irwin Marathon Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) fibre cement blade has diamond tipped teeth to deliver up to 15 times longer life compared to standard carbide tipped fiber cement blades.  The PCD blade can cut up to 9,000 feet of fiber cement board. The laser cut body provides a stronger tooth bond and greater cutting accuracy on the jobsite. And the 4T thin kerf blade produces less dust than a standard carbide fiber cement blade. Available sizes include 7 ¼” 4T, 10” 6T and 12” 8T blades.

The PCD blades are available through industrial supply locations across Canada.  Depending on the size of the blade, the suggested retail price will vary from $49 – $99. For more information, call 1-800-GO-IRWIN or visit www.irwin.com .
