Affinity Tool Works last week announced the official launch of its Dtec Diamond Blade product division. Dtec offers three lines of diamond blades — Superior, Contractor and Barracuda — designed to provide a solution for every type of construction cutting application and budget. The Dtec blades are engineered to perform, 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. With either a 12-mm or 15-mm segment height, the Superior segmented blades offer fast and clean cuts, along with a long blade life. Featuring a modern design combining a segmented and continuous rim, the turbo blades are a suitable solution for fast, precise cuts on higher-end materials like granite, stone and tile.
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 suited for tradesmen in the general and landscape construction, concrete and masonry industries, as well as do-it-yourselfers.
Featuring a continuous rim design, the Barracuda series is a premium line that offers smooth, thin 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 suited for cutting expensive granite and tile on high-end commercial and residential finish work and remodeling.
Dtec Diamond Blades are manufactured and marketed by Affinity Tool Works, Troy, Mich. For more information, visit www.affinitytool.com.
