Red Tip vs. Blue Tip


New Member
Can someone please tell me the differences between the red tip and the blue tip?

i know size, but i mean like in uses?



New Member
Red tip is better for use with thicker material like sandblast, high intensity reflective, etc.

Blue tip is ideal for softer, thinner materials like vinyl, ambermask, paintmask, etc.

I'm assuming that you are refering to the blade holders, each is designed to accomodate different blades, refer to your Graphtec manual for proper applications.

Bobby is right, the red tipped blade holder holds the 15U blade for thick materials, & the blue tipped holder holds the 09U blades for regular 2 & 3 mil vinyl
