There are three general users of short trapezoid blades: floor installers, safety knives and industrial machines. Floorers use short straight knife blades to cut folds and to be able to cut smaller cuts in plastic and linoleum carpets. With the short robust design of the knife blade, maximum stability is given in the blade and the blade can be fixed tightly so that the gap for the knife blade is minimal. By that you get a very stable and robust grip on your blade. Some safety knives use short trapezoid blades such as 9H with a large hole, mainly because they are less pointed but at the same time give similar properties as ordinary knife blades in a universal knife. For mounting in machines, the short straight knife blade provides robust and stable cutting properties when a more robust blade is preferable compared to industrial razor blades.

For industrial use, it is usually used in a machine that cuts plastic of a harder nature.
Coating on trapezoidal utility blades
Sollex 9PT and 9-065-T carries titanium carbide on the blade edges. This means that a very thin layer of titanium covers the blade’s edge. The titanium protects the edge against abrasive wear and tear. The titanium is much harder than the steel, which gives good flexibility in the steel with high hardness on the cutting edge. For the right material, it means longer blade durability and retained sharpness.
The exception is if you cut gypsum boards, then the titanium tears the gypsum, which then sticks more easily to the titanium coating. So if you are going to cut plaster, you should choose article: 975P or 975B.
