This specification details the appropriate components involved in the design of a diamond blade.
There are many variables in the cutting equation that can affect the performance of a diamond blade, including machine horsepower, blade shaft rpm, size of aggregate used in concrete, hardness
of aggregate, the strength of the concrete, the depth of cut attempted per pass, and the experience and capabilities of the operator.
A blade manufacturer must consider all these variables and more when designing a diamond blade for specific and general-purpose applications.
The document can be found in the CSDA Resource Guide, along with over 40 other Standards, Specifications, Best Practices, Tolerances and White Papers.
Each one has been carefully written, reviewed and approved by experts in the field and all are subject to regular updates by the association’s Standards & Specifications Committee.
