LEUCO is happy to announce their all new range of saw blades for cutting plastics perfectly. The three trump cards for plastics from LEUCO are perfect for ending all new challenges that are faced by the carpenters while sawing on the sliding table saw. Only circular saw blades specially designed for plastics achieve good quality and tool life. LEUCO offers three circular saw blades that are a very good solution for every type of plastic.

With four circular saw blades, carpenters master the challenges that arise from the increasing use of plastics in furniture and kitchens. Because plastics are very different. For example, thermoplastics such as polycarbonate and polystyrene easily get too warm and melt when sawing, while thermosets tend to tear out.
