Diamond cutting disc for glass?
Are diamond cutting discs useful for cutting glass?
In our opinion, cutting glass with a diamond cutting disc is not a very promising matter.
In everyday life, it makes little sense to cut window glass or other glass with a diamond-coated cutting disc.
However, an actual field of application arises when cutting glass tiles.
Cutting glass tiles
When laying tiles, they naturally have to be cut at one point or another.
When it comes to glass tiles or mosaic tiles, you have to pay special attention to the right design and the right diamond cutting disc.
As glass tile is a highly sensitive material that can easily break out, we recommend using this type of tile with a table saw and water cooling.
The addition of water provides:
- More precise cutting result
- Fewer outbreaks
- Additional cooling of the cutting disc
- Transports even the smallest glass fragments directly away.
We do not recommend cutting commercial glass with a diamond blade. However, there are tile cutting discs that are suitable for cutting glazed tiles. However, this type of tile can only be cut wet.
