Explanation:

2) The bimetal saw bands consist of a highly flexible support band made from alloyed tempering steel
3) Tooth tips: chamfered precutter and low-profiled finishing cutter

Hope this helps,

Explanation:
Wolfgang's answer above sounds great to me as a non-techie except for problems in the original German text. In English, the saw is not carbide sprayed, only the blade. I would make these slight changes:
"1) Carbide-sprayed saw blades (not carbide-tipped saw blades) 2) The bimetal saw blades consist of a highly flexible support band made from alloyed tempering (? heat-treatable ?) steel (and what else?) 3) Tooth tips: chamfered precutter and low-profiled finishing cutter"

Vergütungsstahl = tempered steel, heat-treated steel


Explanation:
according to the Cornelsen 'Technisches Wörterbuch Maschinenbau/Anlegentechnik/Umwelttechnik', Vergütungsstahl is heat-treated steel. This is the opposite of hardened steel. What you have, I assume, is a bandsaw blade with a tempered body (so that it's flexible) and carbided-coated teeth (so that they're hard and stay sharp). Probably 'carbide-coated' is better than 'carbide-sprayed' unless the author wants to emphasize how the carbide gets there.
