After concrete is poured it hydrates and sets. During this process, the material shrinks and develops internal stresses that are visible as random cracks in the surface. To prevent these random cracks from occurring, controlled, shallow cuts can be made with Syntec’s Early Entry Blades, reducing the tension in the material. As a rule of thumb, the gold blade is for same-day cutting, the red blade is for next day cutting and the magenta blade is for cutting after 2-3 days.

Crack Chasing Diamond Blades feature wedge-shaped segments for incredible cutting speed and exceptional blade life and are designed for cleaning out and repairing / widening cracks or imperfections on a wide range of masonry surfaces.

Tuck Point Diamond Blades are used for fast removal of mortar joints and preparation of any abrasive surfaces like sandstone, lime, render etc. Perfect for routing decorative joints into stone work where cutting the stone proves too time consuming or too difficult.

Wet or dry use with angle grinders, circular saws and tuck pointers.
