The tools - Recommended cutting techniques for the ELEMENT construction panel

Cutting with the cutter – suitable for EL 4 to EL 20

1

Carry out a continuous cut on the top side of the ELEMENT construction panel along an applied ruler using the cutter.

2

A single cut is sufficient for thinner panels (4 mm · 3/16'') to split the construction panel. For thicker panels (6 mm to 20 mm · 1/4'' à 13/16") bend along the cut.

3

Then use the cutter to sever the mortar layer and the glass fibre fabric on the rear side of the ELEMENT construction panel in its bent state.

Cutting with the angle grinder (flex) – suitable for material thickness 4 to 50 mm

1

Before cutting, draw a cutting line using a pencil and a ruler.

2

Apply the angle grinder (segmented diamond grinding sheet) and cut through the ELEMENT construction panel along the cutting line (very easy cutting).

3

A smooth, clean cutting edge is created.

Cutting with the jig saw – suitable for EL 4 to EL 100

1

For a clean cut of the ELEMENT construction panel, we recommend a jig saw with a serrated blade (e.g. type Bosch T313AW HCS).

2

Before the actual cut, draw a cutting line using a pencil and a ruler. Then cut to size along the line of the ELEMENT construction panel using the jig saw (very easy cut).

3

Thick panels up to 100 mm · 3 15/16" can be cleanly cut using this technique. The jig saw is also particularly suitable for cutting contours and curves.
