Sealant Removal - Cutter Blade
- "Without exaggerating,
we cut over 1 mile of joint sealant using the 6"
blade. The only reason why I'm purchasing another one is one
of its teeth fell off, but that same blade is still going using only
1st purchase was (2) of the 12" and (3) of the
7". We got several thousands of feet from the
12" blades and over 1000 feet with the 7".
For now on we're going with the 20 Diamond Deal and the Hot
Rod Saw (right)."

The joint sealant was like
"bubble gum", it was very soft
It was taking 1 minute to
remove 6" inches of sealant

Not only was the sealant
material completely removed from the joint but the inside edges where
thoroughly shaven clean and ready for immediate for re-sealing.

Cuts through hard and softer joint
Without melting the sealant.
As effective as
the blades are at slicing through sealant - WITHOUT MELTING IT
- simply by lowering the RPM's on a variable speed angle grinder (or
going just above neutral) on gas walk behind saws) you'll naturally reduce
friction heat to further help improve or prevent the blade's
effectiveness at slicing through longer sections of sealant without
melting the sealant.
stellite cutters slices along the inside edge of concrete and masonry expansion joints
without having to go back with a wire brush to clean a straight edge:
As the blade
slices along the joint's inside edge, the sealant is
SCRAPED CLEAN with one pass of the blade .
Any excess sealant that may be inside a jagged edge can easily be
lightly cutting into the concrete using the Stellite Blade.
clean inside edges are exposed - assuring you of proper adhesive bonding of the new sealant to
fresh exposed concrete.
Stable Stellite® Cutters
- Resists high temperature heating
- Maintains their sharp
- Harden, high temperature cutters keeps the blade
from dragging - preventing friction heat
Precision Shaped & Fitted
- High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) - Solid
- Precisely made, shaped and fitted to resist
friction heat build-up
- Cutter maintain their sharpness to slice through hard
and soft joint sealant instead of grinding it . . .
Maintains Sharp Slicing Edge
- Utility knife blades and diamond blades wear
- Diamonds round-over and grind (they do not
cut). Hence, when a diamond blade grinds it creates friction heat
which causes it to instantly melt the joint sealant.
- The harden cutters on the Stellite Blade do not round-over which keeps the sealant from melting.
Polyurea & Soft Urethane

joint sealant material will NOT melt
chips will NOT prematurely fracture.

What the contractors are saying about the Stellite Cutter Blade -
- Night and day productivity versus using a FEIN Caulk
the sealant - we cut down both sides of the joint and
pulled-out long strips of sealant. The sealant was
completely removed - we didn't have to go back and clean
the joint's inside edges -- well done and thank
. . . used it on sealant that was very gummy (we think
they forgot to add the hardener to it). The blade
worked far better than a Caulk Cutter or wire wheel."

Productive - After we cutout the sealant we immediately
were able to install the new sealant. The inside
edges were completely free from the old joint
sealant and new concrete was exposed for proper bonding of
the new joint sealant - the joint was completely prep'd
and ready to go . . ."
