How to Cut Diresco Quartz

Cutting Diresco is a fabrication task that can be easy if you have the proper machines and use the correct tooling for cutting quartz. There are plenty of blades on the market for use on various kinds of equipment. However, it is not wise to simply reach for the blade closest to you or just cut your Diresco surface using the blade that happens to be on the bridge saw at the time. The best first step to cutting Diresco is to grab the proper quartz blade.

You might be asking yourself, "What is the proper blade?" That is a great question. And to answer it, we need to get an idea of what quartz surfaces need in the way of blades and other tools for cutting quartz.

Bridge Saw Blades

If you are going to be cutting Diresco, you need to have a machine and a blade that will do the trick. There are a number of machines that are made for cutting all types of stone materials; including quartz. The kind of saw you use to cut Diresco Quartz will most likely be a matter of personal preference. However, the blade needs to be designed in such a way that it can perform well on quartz surfaces. Why is that?

It helps to know a little bit about quartz materials to help you select a blade that performs well. Quartz is a very hard material. It is engineered from minerals that are harder than some granite. This means that the bridge saw blade you select will need to be able to cut hard stone. Additionally, since quartz (including Diresco) is so hard, the blade needs to be able to cut it cleanly too. We have designed a quartz blade that is engineered to perform this task very well.

Cartridge Adhesives for Diresco Quartz

Cutting Diresco is not the only thing that fabricators are interested in knowing. Which glue to use for quartz fabrication when I am workign with Diresco is another main thing that professional fabricators and installers inquire about. Tenax offers color matched cartridge glue for bonding quartz materials including Diresco. In fact, here is a sample of a few colors from Diresco matched up with the color of Multibond that is used for gluing it:
