Sawing AustLon®

AustLon® can be sawn with all types of saws such as:-

  1. Power hacksaw 4-6 teeth per 25mm with a slow feed rate.

  2. Bandsaw H.S.S. blade skiptooth or normal 2-3 teeth per 25mm.

Circular T.C.T. blades are preferred as they give a faster and clearer cut tooth pitch of between 20mm to 40mm – depending on the thickness of the material to be cut. For good fast cutting, check that there is no build up of waste on the teeth of any types of saws used, as this will produce heat build up and eventually cause the saw to seize up.
