In my experience (of cutting aluminum siding) I would use a plywood blade put in the saw reverse of the way it would be installed for cutting wood.  Not certain if that would work for plastics however.  SLOW blade speed and a fast stroke seems to be the most effective way of preventing melting.

Jon,

I agree with both your points.  But I'm saying why not minimize or eliminate the problem by lessening blade contact by having set on the teeth.  

It just doesn't make sense to rub plastic on a spinning steel surface, which is what happens when there's no set on the blade teeth.
