The Bosch Carbide for Laminate Jig Saw Blade is tough enough to withstand a nail hit and keep going no change-out required. These premium carbide for laminate blades employ two rows of counter-directed teeth that are arranged at different angles. The teeth provide clean, chip-free cuts in laminates and laminate flooring. Laminates are abrasive materials that are tough on blade life, but Bosch-exclusive carbide delivers 10X life versus standard bi-metal blades. So one jig saw blade really does gives you the confidence to make clean cuts in laminates whether you are building or installing them. A thin blade kerf reduces material extraction, reduces heat and adds to performance.
