Material: These blades are often made from High-Speed Steel (HSS) or Tungsten Carbide (TC). HSS provides a harder and more heat-resistant blade suitable for laminates, while TC-tipped or coated blades provide excellent wear resistance and longevity when cutting abrasive materials like laminate.
Tooth Design: Blades for laminate often feature a higher Teeth Per Inch (TPI) count, usually in the range of 10-20 TPI. The teeth are typically ground and pointed to ensure clean, chip-free cuts.
Blade Length: Blade lengths for laminate cutting blades can vary, but common lengths are in the range of 75mm (about 3 inches) to 100mm (about 4 inches).
Blade Type: Jigsaw blades come in two main types, T-shank and U-shank. The type you need depends on your jigsaw’s compatibility. Most modern jigsaws accept T-shank blades.
Cutting Style: Special laminate blades can make both straight and curved cuts. They are typically designed with narrow bodies for tight curve cutting.
Working Material: These blades are specifically designed for cutting through laminated materials. Some blades may also be suitable for cutting other materials, but always check the manufacturer’s instructions for compatibility.
Down-cutting Design: Some laminate-cutting jigsaw blades have a down-cutting or reverse-tooth design. This means the teeth are pointed upwards, so the blade cuts on the down-stroke, helping to prevent chipping on the top surface of the laminate.
