What kind of blade? What is the material made out of? Possibly a blade with less teeth would work better.

What blade are you using? I have used plenty of flexible trim before and used a 40 tooth 10" freud table saw blade that ripped it just fine.

Cool rubber molding

turns out only one piece of this stuff (supplied by others) was "true" extruded rubber. The rest was more of the type that flex-casing is made of.World of difference!!! ripping was easy...day was good
