Question What saw blade to use for cutting Corian

The feedback on previous questions concerning cutting corian, only said use a carbide saw blade. But, which type? Do you get the diamond blade? or the blade to cut tile? or perhaps the Artisian schroll saw blade? Is there anything special to look for when reading the label on the blade? I have not found one that says for cutting corian. Your assistance is appreciated.

Pretty much any blade suitable for hardwood woodworking will work. It does not require a diamond or masonry blade. Ditto drilling, sanding, shaping.

Corian is a plastic material and can be cut cleanly with a 40 -60 tooth carbide blade.

The best blade to use will have a triple chip grind, like those used for soft metals like brass or aluminum. Some manufacturers make blades specifically for Corian or solid surface, but you don't find them in most tool stores. Forrest, Freud, Amana, and others have them.
