Amazon.com The 12-inch Freud LU77M012 Thin Kerf Non-Ferrous Metal Saw Blade is a heavy-duty blade that delivers a precise finish when cutting aluminum and non-ferrous materials. Featuring 96 teeth with TiCo high-density carbide tips and Freud's Silver I.C.E. coating, which helps reduce heat buildup and prevent corrosion, this thin-kerf blade is built to stand up to the demands of frequent use and tough applications.Triple-Chip Tooth Grind for Precise Metal Saw CutsBuilt to make quick, exact work of trimming and reshaping aluminum or non-ferrous metals, this blade features teeth with a triple-chip grind. In this configuration, each flat-top tooth is followed by a trapezoidal tooth that's slightly higher. The trapezoidal tooth delivers a precut slot that's narrower than the final kerf, so the flat-top teeth can leave a finish that's clean and true.Also offering custom designed gullets that minimize chip buildup, this blade is designed for optimal performance when cutting metal walls that are less than 1/4-inch thick. It has a 1-inch arbor and produces a 0.091 kerf. This thin-kerf design reduces waste and allows for faster feed rates, so you get big jobs done faster.Freud recommends that you use a liquid lubricant like WD40 when cutting metals with this blade.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.High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting PerformanceThis thin-kerf saw blade's 96 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "non-ferrous blend." Formulated to extend tooth life in the face of demanding metalwork applications, this blend is extra impact-resistant--due to including more cobalt than other TiCo blends--and it still offers the mix of improved strength, density, corrosion resistance, and heat 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.Silver I.C.E. Coating Resists Corrosion and Heat BuildupThis blade is finished with Freud's Silver I.C.E. coating, which resists corrosion for improved performance over time. This unique coating also resists heat buildup, protecting your saw and your work surface and preventing the blade from warping. Also, its non-stick surface helps prevent unwanted buildups. All this translates to less drag on the motor of your saw, which means longer tool life and longer blade life.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.
