LAS VEGAS, Nevada, January 19, 2004 - Stanley introduces the FatMax® Saw with Blade Armor(TM) featuring a composite coating that protects the blade from abrasion. The protective coating produces two times more rust protection and six times more abrasion protection, resulting in 50% less friction when compared to Stanley® lacquered saws. The FatMax® Saw is ideal for cutting wet and immature wood, plasterboard, large timbers and other composite materials that can be abrasive.
The saw features a SharpTooth(TM) design capable of cutting 50% faster than traditional saws while a 15% thicker blade reduces binding. The FatMax Saw with Blade Armor(TM) coating features induction hardened teeth that stay sharp three to five times longer in comparison to traditional saws, giving the Stanley® FatMax® Saw with Blade Armor(TM) coating the durability and long life pros demand. The handle is approximately 60% percent thicker than other panel saws and has an ergonomically designed slip-resistant grip, providing ultimate comfort and control.
"The Stanley® FatMax® Saw with Blade Armor(TM) Coating is a well-protected and long-lasting saw that will stay in excellent condition to give you the sharpest cut every time," said Etienne Bourgeois, Global Product Manager, Cutting Tools.

The addition of Blade Armor(TM) will keep the blade in better condition."
