Correspondingly, what saw blade for plastic?
The NO-MELT carbide-tipped saw blade is especially designed for cutting single or multiple stacked sheets of plastic without chipping or melting these materials. The large number of carbide teeth with a special modified triple-chip-grind (#11 tooth style) allows fast feeding of brittle acrylics with no chipping.
Also, what is good for cutting plastic? Depending on the type of plastic you need to cut through, use a fine-toothed saw, a hacksaw, or a non-melting table saw blade. You can also drill small holes to make the plastic easier to cut through, or slice through thick plastic with a piece of string.
Also Know, how do you cut hard plastic without breaking it?
-inch to cut, use a hook knife to make a straight cut on it. And the knife will do the job without breaking it. You can also use a hot knife to cut thin plastic. To cut straight a thick sheet of acrylic or polycarbonate use the circular saw.
What kind of blade do you use to cut plexiglass?
For best results with Plexiglas® MC acrylic sheet, circular saw blades should be the largest diameter possible and contain 60 carbide-tipped teeth with a triple-chip-tooth design. Teeth should be shaped with a 5° to 10° positive rake angle and have sharp cutting edges with adequate clearance.
