Milwaukee Introduces New Ice Hardened™ Sawzall® Blades

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces Ice Hardened™ Sawzall® blades, a new generation of reciprocating saw blades that offer up to 50% longer life than the competition and are ideal for metal cutting in a wide variety of HVAC, electrical, plumbing and maintenance/repair applications.
Milwaukee Ice Hardened™ products utilize a proprietary cryogenic hardening process that improves upon traditional heat treat processes. Unlike surface coatings that wear away, cryogenics harden to the core by minimizing soft metal (austenite) and creating more hard metal (martensite). The result is a product that is more consistently hard throughout, resulting in life up to 50% longer than the competition.
Milwaukee Ice Hardened Sawzall blades also feature Matrix II bi-metal construction for greater durability and a unique precision-ground tooth geometry for faster cutting. A positive rake angle cuts more aggressively while deeper gullets quickly remove chips. A radiused back face reduces stress on the teeth, ensuring that the blade delivers optimum life and speed.
Milwaukee offers 13 different Ice Hardened Sawzall blades in a variety of lengths and tooth configurations as well as in both standard and The Torch® demolition configurations. All blades are available in both 5 and 50 packs and there is also a 14 piece Ice Hardened kit available.
