press release

Precise, clean cut edges and considerably less risk of tile breakage when cutting tiles to size: this is guaranteed by the new, extra thin FPP-Extra Clean diamond cutting disc from Bosch. This disc, with the highest quality level of Bosch Professional Plus, cuts all types of tiles and stone slabs extremely quickly with its optimized segments (only 1.2 millimeters thin and five millimeters high). Conventional diamond cutting discs for tiles are often thicker, which causes more grinding resistance. They cut more slowly and tend to form chips on the edges of tiles. Tile breakage is also more likely when wider diamond cutting discs are used.

The new tile cutting discs FPP-Extra Clean are ideal for adjustment work, especially when absolute precision is required. Their eight cooling holes are surrounded by diamond segments that regrind the tile's cut edges. This prevents chips from occurring. Moreover, the special flange gives the diamond cutting disc optimum stability and reduces the vibrations during cutting. This also helps to achieve particularly clean cut edges without chips. The tiler no longer has to rework the tile edges.

The new diamond cutting disc FPP-Extra Clean is available in diameters of 115 millimeters and 125 millimeters. They will be available at specialist retail outlets from September 2008 onwards.
