Lenox has announced the launch of Lenox Metalmax diamond abrasive, a new alternative to abrasive cutoff wheels for increased durability and smooth, clean and even cuts.
The product offers a solution for pain points that bonded abrasives can bring, including diameter retention and less dust residue.
Made with metal cutting diamonds bonded to the wheel’s surface, the diamond abrasives are manufactured with a proprietary technology allowing the diamonds to endure high cutting speeds and temperatures while maintaining superior cutting properties.
They can deliver 1000 or more cuts with no need for wheel changes, providing 30 times longer wheel life than thin bonded abrasive cut-off wheels.
The solid steel body design reduces the risk of breakage, and its diamond cutting edge does not wear away, allowing it to hold its original wheel diameter until the very last cut.
Because they don’t wear away, there is substantial reduction of odour and airborne particles resulting in less dust residue in the work space.
“For those tradespeople who work with abrasives on a regular basis, it’s important for them to have a durable tool,” Lenox spokesman Justin Goode says.
“Lenox Metalmax has been created to provide easy handling and control, while providing the durability and precision needed on every single cut.”
Lenox Metalmax works in multiple applications with the same power tools as bonded abrasives, and in a wide range of materials, including steel, stainless steel, cast iron, rebar, sheet metal, aluminium and non-ferrous metals.
Lenox Metalmax includes a complete line with 12 products. Some of the most common sizes are:
• 100mm thin cut-off wheel, angle grinder
• 115mm thin cut-off wheel, angle grinder
• 125mm thin cut-off wheel, angle grinder
• 235mm thin cut-off wheel, angle grinder
• 357mm cut-off wheel, chop saw

• Lenox, part of Newell Brand’s global portfolio, began in 1915 with a 10-employee team and a passion for bringing customers hacksaw blades that cut faster and lasted longer.
Now, over 100 years later, the team has grown to more than 900 people who manufacture and market Lenox products in more than 70 countries.
The company’s ISO 9001-certified facility in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, USA, boasts a 500,000 sq ft, 11-acre space for designing, testing and manufacturing power tool accessories, hand tools, band saw blades and accessories.
