Dtec Diamond Blade Product Division
Affinity Tool Works has launched the Dtec Diamond Blade product division, which offers three lines of diamond blades: Superior, Contractor and Barracuda. The three lines provide a solution for every type of construction cutting application and budget. Dtec blades are engineered to perform and built to meet the demands of a variety of applications, and are intended to fit a wide range of both gas- and electric-powered saws.
Dtec’s Superior series offers more than 10 blade sizes and is available in segmented and turbo configurations. Both blade edges are an ideal solution for fast, yet precise, cuts on higher end materials like granite, stone, tile and even steel. All Superior blades are built with a reinforced flange, which reduces vibration and noise and, when combined with strategically placed cooling holes, helps prevent warping caused by excessive heat.
Consisting of more than 15 blade sizes, the Contractor series offers an option for the price-conscious without sacrificing the performance of a diamond blade. Three different configurations are available to suit a wide range of applications: segmented, continuous rim and turbo. Intended to cut material such as concrete, masonry block and brick, this line is ideal for tradesmen in the general and landscape construction, concrete and masonry industries.
Featuring a continuous rim design, the Barracuda series is a premium line that offers the smoothest, thinnest cuts for wet or dry applications. S-slots in the blade prevent heat build-up, extending blade life up to 10-times longer than similar blades. Furthermore, the S-slot design keeps the blade from warping and allows straighter, more precise cuts. Designed exclusively for “beauty cuts,” the Barracuda series is perfect for cutting expensive granite and tile on high-end commercial and residential finish work and remodeling.
