Product Specifications & Information:

Chipbreaker's unique tooth form was designed to reduce heat generation at increased chip loads. With reduced tooth stripping and breaking this equates to the lowest possible cost per square inch of metal cutting. Chipbreaker comes in two distinct tooth forms for varied cutting applications. The 2.5/3.5 pitch is a standard variable tooth design and can be used for general purpose cutting. The 1.1/1.5, 2/3, and 3/4 are a variable Hi-Lo tooth form which gives optimum performance on solid materials.

Note: The variable Hi-Lo (VHL) tooth form is not recommended for cutting bundled materials, structurals, pipe or tubing.

• M-42 High speed steel edge (HRC 68/69)
• Reduced heat generation at increased chip loads
• Prevents scoring on gullet surfaces and reduces chip welding
• Higher cutting rates with increased blade life
• Reduced tooth stripping and blade breakage
