Forrest and others make a no-melt style blade that has more generous side clearance geometry to reduce heat. The TCG is a durable choice for brittle materials in general, but it’s the special side grinds that are the most beneficial for this type of material. If you opt to use another type of blade, keeping the blade slightly higher (deeper in the case of a circular saw) can help reduce heat.
