Abrasive Blades

Abrasive BladesAbrasive Blades Abrasive cutting is the most common method of sectioning to achieve a clean and efficient cut.Yesaar Tech abrasive blades are designed to provide high quality sectioning results with no burning and minimal surface deformation.

Yesaar Tech carries a wide range of different metallographic abrasive blades for sectioning machines that can be used for many different applications. Our abrasive blades have diameter ranges from 5 in (127 mm) to 18 in (455 mm), arbor sizes ranging from 0.5 in (12.7 mm) to 1.25 in (31.75 mm), blade thicknesses ranging from 0.0020 in (0.5 mm) to 0.063 in (1.6 mm) and dimensions ranging from 5.9 in (150 mm) to 9 in (230 mm).

Our abrasive blades are frequently used for sectioning many different materials including but not limited to ferrous materials, soft, medium, hard, and tool steel, stainless steel, super alloys, titanium alloys, and zirconium alloys.

Benefits

Efficient Cutting with Extended Life

To acheive a clean and efficient cut, a blade needs to break down during cutting to expose new abrasive particles. Depending on the hardness of the material, the blade needs to break down at different rates. Yesaar Tech abrasive blades have been developed for specific applications to ensure the proper rate of wear. This balance provides an efficient cutting action while maximizing blade life. The selection table on the "Ordering" tab provides the recommendations by material type and hardness.

Thin, Precise Abrasive Sectioning

For certain applications, it is important to minimize the amount of damage done to the sample during sectioning. The AcuThin series offers thin blades that have been developed to minimize the area of cutting thus reducing the amount of damage to the sample. These blades allow for precise, delicate abrasive sectioning with minimal surface damage.

Wide Diameter Range:

With abrasive blades from 5" [127mm] up to 18" [455mm], Yesaar Tech abrasive blades can be used on Yesaar Tech full range of abrasive and precision saws.
