Bahco Insulation Saw

The Bahco Insulation Saw has been designed and created due to the demand for a saw to cut polystyrene, styrofoam and mineral wool quickly and without mess. Due to the blades unique waveform design, it acts more like a knife and therefore makes cutting easier.

The blade on the Bahco Insulation Saw has a waveform amplitude of 0.5mm and wavelength of 15mm. The edge is sharpened and set 0.20 ± 0.05mm and the thickness is only 0.83mm.

There is a need to protect this hand saw blade from rust.  However there are problems with both of the normally used rust protections for handsaws; the clear varnish will not work because of high friction and the powder coating makes the edge blunt.  Therefore another way was to use the saw sleeve that also protected the saw from rusting.  The sleeve is impregnated with a Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) that will protect the saw from corrosion during storage & transportation.  It is essential that the end user retain the sleeve & use it whilst the saw is not in use otherwise rust will start to appear on the blade.  The sleeve also tells the end user that it’s needed for rust protection.
