New M-2 Slitter Blade Wins Out Over Old Carbon or Stainless Steel Blade


Staunton, VA, May, 2002--Specialty Blades, Inc., a leader in cutting edge technology and manufacturer in Virginia since 1985, has designed a new M-2 slitter blade that field tests show wears up to ten times longer than standard carbon steel blades. Able to replace any conventional blade, including those used in all slitting and converting processes, the M-2 slitter blade provides a long-lasting sharpness that results in more accurate cuts and significant reduction in:

- Web and/or trim tears

- Thickened edges

- Wavy edges

- Contamination build-up

- Downtime from blade replacements

The M-2 slitter blade has a hardness rating of Rc 63-66 and is
available from stock in the slotted blade shape used in most slitting applications. Another key benefit of the M-2 slitter blade is the new proprietary technology that allows blades from this "next generation" material to be provided at a competitive cost.

For over 17 years, Specialty Blades, Inc. has addressed the needs of industries and original equipment manufacturers that require high performance, razor sharp cutting blades and machine knives. Now they offer the M-2 high speed steel slitter blade, an off-the-shelf blade that delivers all the quality and performance of a Specialty Blade's custom-made blade, and can be used in a number of manufacturing processes across industry lines.

Specialty Blades considers its M-2 slitter blade a break-though product and an integral part of the next generation of steel razor blades. Other shapes and sizes are also available as needed for custom applications.
