Our Optima® brand includes carbon steel and stainless steel blades combined with advanced wear coatins to offer 8x blade life over standard carbon steel blades. Recommended for any slitting or converting application currently using basic uncoated blades and needing improved blade life and cleaner cuts.
Our Endurium® and Optima Plus® brands include high performance steels combined with revolutionary coatings offering 12-16x blade life over basic carbon steel blades. For use in virtually any slitting environment, these blades combine optimal toughness with long wear life for overall improved blade performance.
Our Endurium® brand also includes extreme wear materials including solid ceramic, solid carbide, and A11 tool steel. These materials can offer 80-100x blade life over basic carbon steel blades. Solid carbide and ceramic are recommended for the most demanding applications, but require good web control and minimal force.
