$162.82

Amazon.com Designed for speed, the 16-inch Freud LU98R016 Single-Sided Laminate and Melamine Cutting Saw Blade leaves a flawless finish on one side when working with laminates, melamine, and veneered plywood. It features Freud’s Perma-SHIELD coating, and a triple-chip tooth grind, the long-term dependability of TiCo high-density carbide, and a series of laser-cut, anti-vibration slots.Triple-Chip Grind for Fast Cuts and Chip-Free Top SurfacesThis fast-cutting blade is built to leave a perfect, chip-free finish on one side when cutting laminates and sheets of melamine. Ideal for large-volume production work, this blade features 120 teeth with a triple-chip grind. The blade’s teeth also feature 10-degree, positive hook angles, which contribute to the blade’s speed and extended tooth life.This blade is designed for optimal performance when cutting laminate or melamine that ranges from 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches in thickness. It’s also an excellent performer when working with plywood and chipboard, and a solid performer when crosscutting wood. This blade can also rip wood, and it can tackle thinner or thicker materials. However, some loss of surface finish may occur when it is used outside its ideal range. It has a 1-inch arbor and produces a 0.150 kerf.Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration DesignThis Freud blade is precision balanced and pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that reduce chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work. And because the entire blade is laser cut from high-strength steel, you can trust that it will stay stable, flat, and true, even after prolonged use. Furthermore, this well-balanced, anti-vibration design means there’s no need to use add-on stabilizers with this blade.High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting PerformanceThis laminate saw blade’s 120 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud’s application-specific TiCo high-density carbide “laminate blend.” Formulated to extend tooth life in the face of work with laminates, melamine, and solid surfaces, this blend is extra hard–due to the proportion of high-density tungsten carbide that goes into it–and it still offers the mix of improved corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and impact resistance that you expect from TiCo.With teeth that start out sharper and deliver improved edge retention, the blade can go longer between sharpening. and will hold up longer–saving you time and money.Perma-SHIELD Coating Reduces Friction and Heat BuildupBuilt to withstand tough use in less-than-ideal conditions, this blade is finished with Freud’s red Perma-SHIELD–a non-stick coating that reduces friction and nearly eliminates the heat buildup that excess friction can cause. By providing complete thermal insulation, this coating protects your tools and your work surface. And it resists binding when the blade is used for large-volume cutting applications, which reduces blade warp.As a lubricating feature, Perma-SHIELD allows the blade to spin freely while reducing stress on the motor and carriage of your saw. In addition, this coating helps prevent debris collection and resin or “pitch” buildup. Since gummy pitch buildup causes extra drag on the motor of your saw, less buildup is another little convenience that translates into longer tool life and longer blade life. It also means less downtime for blade cleaning, so you get jobs done faster.This industrial saw blade is backed by Freud’s limited lifetime warranty.About Freud: A History of Innovative ManufacturingAn industry leader for more than 50 years, Freud America, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of superior carbide cutting tools for the woodworking industry.
