1. Factors causing rust
Generally speaking, carbide saw blades should be placed in a ventilated and dry place when not in use. The packaging should not be damaged, and it is best to store them on a wooden shelf.
The factors that cause saw blades to rust are usually: the packaging is damaged and the place where it is placed is relatively humid. Water mist is easily generated here and comes into contact with the carbide saw blade from the damaged entrance, causing oxidation.
It is also possible that where the saw blades are stored, liquid seeps into the saw blade packaging, causing oxidation and leading to rust. Therefore, when we are not using the saw blade, we must pay attention to its placement and keep it ventilated and dry.
2. How to deal with rusty carbide saw blades
If the saw blade is found to be rusty, do not use it as usual at this time. This will easily cause damage to the saw blade, especially chipping and other phenomena. We must perform rust removal and other operations before use.
1. First check the rusted parts. If it is the base part, it is easy to deal with. Just use our common rust removal methods.
2. If the rusty part is at the sawtooth position, it will be a bit troublesome. In this case, it must be treated with a diamond grinding wheel, because the sawtooth is the most sensitive part of the saw blade. Once it is not handled properly, it will seriously affect the hardness. The use of high-quality alloy saw blades is very likely to cause the saw blade to be scrapped.
The best way to deal with saw blade rust is actually daily maintenance and handling of some details. Only prevention before it happens is the most effective way to deal with the problem.
