IWF: Freud expands Ultimate Plywood and Melamine blade line

(HIGH POINT, NC) – Freud America, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 7-1/4” Ultimate Plywood & Melamine Blade for unmatched finish in any type of wood or wood composite sheets, with a splinter-free surface on both sides! Now with Freud's new 7-1/4" x 60 Thin Kerf Ultimate Plywood and Melamine Blade, woodworkers have a blade that provides extremely clean cuts in veneer plywood and melamine.

In the market today, cutting large sheets of fine veneer or melamine to size is a real challenge for many woodworkers. With ordinary portable saw blades, getting a perfect finish on BOTH sides of delicate materials is difficult if not impossible - or it was until now! With a unique tooth geometry and industrial anti-vibration design, the new LU79R007 produces the smoothest, cleanest cuts ever seen with a portable saw!

Freud’s New Ultimate Laminate & Melamine Blade Features:
* Exclusive TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide - is designed and manufactured by Freud specifically for crosscutting applications. The combination of hard carbide and impact resistant carbide results in a tooth that maintains a sharp edge, and produces ultra smooth, clean cuts in a variety of materials.
* Industrial Anti-Vibration Design- virtually eliminates the sideways movement of the blade in the cut, extending cut life and keeping cut smooth and true.
* Unique 38° Hi-ATB Tooth Design Geometry - Freud's new 60T blade featuring a 38 degree HiATB design. This premium grind produces incredibly clean cuts on both sides of fine veneer plywood or melamine panels.
* Thin Kerf Design reduces waste, feeds easily, and is ideal for underpowered saws.
* Perma-SHIELD Coating prevents build up on the blade surface and keeps the blade running cooler and cleaner, for better cut quality and longer blade life.
