Carbide Blade

A carbide blade is a type of band saw blade featuring teeth made from solid carbide, a material that is significantly harder and more wear-resistant than high-speed steel (HSS) or carbon steel. Carbide blades are ideal for cutting hard materials, such as metals, composites, and abrasive woods, and offer longer service life compared to other blade types. However, they can be more brittle and susceptible to breakage if used improperly or subjected to excessive force.
