How Cold Weather Impacts Soff-Cut Blade Selection



Are your Soff-Cut blades not cutting the way they're supposed to? THE PROBLEM MIGHT NOT BE A BAD BLADE! Make sure the timing of the cut is correct first! As temperatures get cooler concrete takes longer to set. In warmer weather, concrete slabs are generally ready to be cut 8-10 hours after they are poured. Whereas in cooler weather, concrete takes longer to set so your early-entry cutting may be pushed back to 16-24 hours after the pour. Due to the temperature change, you might need to use a new blade. Esch ProCut Purple Early Entry Blade is a unique blade that is designed to extend the window for same-day green concrete. With the extension of time, it takes for the concrete to set with colder weather, our Esch Purple blade can be used NEXT DAY!


Esch ProCut Purple Early Entry Blade

The Esch ProCut Purple Blade is an early-entry blade designed for newly-cured concrete.  The Esch Purple blade extends the window of time that you can cut same-day concrete. The blade also has extended life from its high-quality diamond segments. These segments allow the Esch Purple to quickly slice through green/ newly cured concrete.
