The constant evolution of ceramic materials poses a challenge for professionals in the installation of ceramic tiles.
With the arrival of porcelain stoneware, the hardness of the materials became the professional’s main concern. Now, with the new productive processes, and with the consolidation of porcelain tiles as the most widely used material, as well as the growing presence of large formats or ceramic sheets, the main handicap is the difficulty in cutting ceramic tiles. This difficulty is the result of combining the hardness, thickness, surface finish and possible internal stresses of the material itself.
For the most difficult ceramic materials, RUBI offers the EXTREME range of scoring wheels and rollers.
EXTREME scoring wheels and rollers are made of high quality tungsten carbide, with a special titanium carbide coating. Thanks to this coating, RUBI EXTREME rollers and scoring wheels suffer less wear during use. But in addition, the EXTREME scoring wheels and rollers when mounted on a bearing, completely eliminates the friction of the wheel itself with the wheel shaft. This combination allows the behavior of the EXTREME scoring wheel to be much superior to the rest, offering a soft scratch and a life of 300%, compared to SILVER scoring wheels and rollers under the same conditions of use.
The EXTREME range of rollers are specially designed and recommended for scratching ceramic materials with rough and or structured finishes (textures or reliefs).
The EXTREME rotors are compatible with the RUBI range of cutters: TS-MAX, TR-MAGNET and SPEED-MAGNET in its 10 mm caliber version and with the TZ and TX-MAX ranges in the 12 mm caliber version. In addition, the EXTREME roller from RUBI is compatible with the TQ, TP-T and TP-S manual cutters, as well as the manual SLIM CUTTER for ceramic sheet cutting system from the SLAB SYSTEM product range.
