Brick Cutting - Diamond Blade Selection Guide

Bricks vary enormously in hardness and the diamond blades required to cut them are reflected in that.

Softer facing bricks can usually be cut by a cheaper general purpose diamond blades and these are fine if there are only a few bricks to be cut. General Purpose Diamond Blade.

For speed when a lot of bricks are to be cut, it is usually worth investing in a better laser welded diamond blade with a higher diamond content. A blade such as Multi-Slysa will cut a wide range of bricks quickly and neatly. These have turbo style segments which are more effectively air-cooled and have much lower risk of glazing.

Some bricks are extremely hard. Fire brick and engineering bricks are made of densely packed clay and are baked hard for a prolonged period. Cutting these requires the best diamond blade. We recommend Multi-Slysa Premium Plus with premium grade diamond mounted in laser welded turbo segments. Multi-Slysa Premium Plus Diamond Blades For Hard Bricks

For some decorative brickwork, it may be desirable to have a low-chip cut for a neat finish. For this application, our Granite Turbo blades are a good choice. These have continuous rims and premium diamond grade giving a smooth cutting action which is hard to achieve with a segmented diamond blade. Granite Turbo Diamond Blade

Professional brick cutting, for the purposes of producing lighter weight slips for cladding requires a fast cutting blade if productivity is to optimised. We supply Multi-Slysa and Multi-Slysa Premium Plus diamond blades for this application in both 355mm (for 14" chop saws) and 450mm for larger saws. The 450mm is also ideal for cutting blocks for paving.
