Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) tipped router cutter exclusively designed for use with Gemstone worktops. A Gemstone worktop has 6mm of solid material fused to a 28mm high-performance chipboard core.
85% recycled materials, including glass, mirror and shell, make up Gemstone. The solid upper layer is particularly abrasive and needs diamond tools to cut it. A standard TCT cutter will not cut the top layer.
Please Note: PCD tools require extra user care due to their strong, but brittle nature.
As the material contains glass, when cutting, there may be occasions where the glass chips away from the worktop leaving a cavity on the top surface.
Due to Gemstone?s abrasiveness, the cutter will get extremely hot, will blue and dull with use. A re-sharpening service is available from Trend.
PPE must be worn and dust extraction must be used.
Any worktop jig and router base slider plate will get scratched due to the abrasive nature of the dust.
