The condition caused when the saw blade lifts and tears the wood fibers as it exits the material. This causes the edge of the cut to be ragged.
This type of tool damage is often associated with stresses within the tool substrate (especially at sharp edges), as well as general material brittleness. This is a typical tool failure mode. The low coefficient of friction of our coatings will allow sharp edges to cut more freely, thereby reducing stress-related chipping. Also, reducing material hardness (which increases toughness) and allowing the high micro-hardness of the coatings to provide wear resistance can reduce chipping.
Chipping is a village situated in the Ribble Valley on the edge of the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire, United Kingdom. A well kept secret to many, this picturesque Lancashire village has won a number of best kept village competitions over the years.
