The differences between 3 different types of diamond saw blade

There are three different types of blades: segmented type, Turbo type and Continuous type, they have different characteristics and uses.

Segmented type:The Segmented diamond saw blade have the roughest cut and is used for concrete, brick, concrete pavers, masonry/block, hard/reinforced concrete, and limestone. Segmented type is usually referred to as a dry cutting blade. Why it can be used in dry applications without water? Because the cut outs—or segments—on the edge of the blade allow for air flow and cooling of the blade. The segments also allow for better exhaust of debris, allowing for a swifter cut. One of the risks to the lifetime of a diamond blade is overheating, which affects the bond and can warp the blade. Segmented blades are the best option when water is not available; however, if a person tries to use a segmented blade on, for example, a tile, more often than not that blade is going to chip the tile, leaving an awful finish.

Turbo type :The Turbo diamond saw blade is specifically for faster cutting in wet or dry applications.  The small size segments allow for cooling of the blade with an integrated interweaving diamond matrix.  The turbo rim lets air pass through its smaller turbo segments, which has a cooling effect.  And the small holes scattered throughout the blade as well.  It is in order to  increase the cooling capabilities of their blades.  This blade cuts faster due to the design of the turbo segments pushing the material out.  Turbo type diamond blade can effectively cuts concrete, brick, and limestone materials.

Continuous type: the Continuous Rim blade is most commonly referred to as a wet cut blade.  There are a few advantages to using water when cutting material:  Water significantly cools down the blade, allowing for longer life; it flushes out any debris to lessen friction in the cutting zone; and it reduces dust, thus preventing dust from building up in the cracks of the tool, which would decrease its lifetime.  The continuous rim cuts the slowest of any of the different styles of diamond saw blades, but as a tradeoff it produces the best cut.  Typically, the continuous rim is used for cutting marble, granite, porcelain tile, and ceramic tile.
