Features & Benefits
Black Blade (Sound Dampened)/Grey Blade (Normal)
The Black/Grey blade is used for hard to very hard cores e.g. Magnetite & banded iron. The Green and White Blades are an alternative and are dependent on the composition of the rock.
The Black blade is the first choice for harder materials, but the Green blade is an alternative and is dependent on the composition of the rock. The Green Blade will cut slightly harder material than the Orange blade. Also available as a sound-dampened blade to special order.
The Orange blade will cut medium to hard material. Also available as a sound-dampened blade.
The Pink blade is used for very hard to extremely hard core, complementing the Black blade. Note depending on the core the Black blade is better on some core than the Pink is on others.
Alternative to the Black blade when cutting hard materials. Mainly for iron ore and other very hard materials. Harder and more abrasive material will generally reduce the life of the blade.
The White blade is used for hard to very hard cores. It is an alternative to the Black blade and is dependent on the composition of the rock.
The Yellow blade will cut soft to medium hardness material with maximum total meters of core cut to each blade. Also available as a sound-dampened blade.
