SMART CUT™ vs. Resin Bond Blades
SMART CUT Metal Bond Diamond Blades vs. Resin Bond Blades
One of the most most widely used bonds on diamond blades is a resin bond. It is made of a tough polymer formed to hold the diamond particles to the rim of the diamond blade (tar in a solid form). Resin-bonded diamond blades remove material quickly. However, most resin bond blades wear too fast. They also require frequent dressing (truing) to hold their form.
A stronger bond type is a sintered (metal bond). Metal Bond diamond blades offer longer life than resin bond blades, and can be operated at higher speeds.

More Consistent Performance - Metal Bond & Hybrid Bond Diamond Blades with SMART CUT technology are more durable than resin bond blades. Their heavy duty construction is designed to minimize and prevent blade wreckage. And unlike resin bond blades, SMART CUT™ diamond blades require significantly less dressing. This provides two very distinct advantages:
1.) blade will not loose its roundness or shape - A resin bond, is really tar in a solid form. And in many cases, must be constantly dressed. Constant dressing often results in blade loosing its roundness and becoming oval shaped. SMART CUT™ technology resolves this problem, by orienting diamonds inside a very soft metal matrix, so that every diamond is better able to participate in the cutting action. THE RESULT:
2.) no material contamination & deformation - A resin bond must remain very fragile in order to expose new diamonds. For this reason, strong and high quality diamonds cannot be used in a resin bond. High quality diamonds are harder than a resin bond matrix, and would soon disintegrate the bond that keeps them in place. For this reason, diamonds that are used in a resin bond are poor to medium quality. Most of them disintegrate or fall out of the bond, before they have a chance of being used. The problem with this approach is these diamonds fall into the material being cut, causing unwanted contamination. Find out more...
