Jewel will be looking to build upon previous year’s successes using DOMOTEX as a platform to promote their brand and products for the flooring industry including their XL Premium Silver & Gold Blade Range, Professional Knives & Cutters and their ever increasing range of blades for the textile and fibre industries.

The innovative XL Premium Silver & Gold Range of blades are designed, developed and manufactured by Jewel Blade in Sheffield England to the highest of industry standards using a high quality Premium 1.25% Carbon Steel.  Jewel Blade are the ONLY UK MANUFACTURERS to use this premium quality steel to produce blades for use in the flooring industry. This superior steel can be heat treated to a higher tolerance effectively increasing the hardness and consequently improving both the sharpness and durability of the blades.  In addition Jewel Blade’s XL Premium Range also benefits from being surfaced finished which further enhances cutting performance. Not only does this superior polished finish improve the blades appearance it also provides rust inhibiting properties to ensure a greater resistance to wear, with an increased slip factor reducing the amount of friction generated leading to a longer lasting product.

The XL Premium Silver range with its razor sharp cutting edge is designed to be up to 4 X sharper than standard 1% Carbon Steel Blades. With its polished finish enhancing the blades slip factor there is a reduced amount of drag making these blades ideal for professional fitters who require increased precision and control with less effort when cutting through the toughest of modern day materials such as LVT and Carpet. The XL Premium Silver blades stay sharper for longer subsequently reducing user handling which in turn reduces the risk of accidental injuries and tool downtime ensuring a more productive and cost effective blade.

The XL Premium Gold range boasts a Titanium Nitride (TiN) Coating which enhances the durability of the blades cutting edge, improving performance by up to 8 X making it GREAT for use when cutting those more abrasive materials like Heavy Duty Safety Flooring, Plywood and MDF.  With fewer blade changes minimising tool downtime the XL Premium Gold is ideal for Contract Flooring Professionals with more time spent on the job in hand, providing the fitter with a higher yield.
