VSM Introduces New Line of Ceramic Products

VSM Abrasives has announced a new line of ceramic coated abrasive products. These products are being produced with grain manufactured by VSM and incorporating Seeded Gel" technology. This grain technology is more homogenous in structure, allowing the product to last at least 30% longer than previous products, depending on the application. This added longevity in life saves customers time and...

Materials

Abrasive Material can be used in multiple application types.

Available in grits from P120-P600, COMPACTGRAIN KK712F coated abrasive accelerates completion of multiple finishing steps using single-layer abrasive. Granulates regenerate, exposing new sharp grains during use, to provide consistent and uniform surface finish throughout entire product life. In addition to flexible cotton backing, suited for mechanical pressure and hand polishing applications,...

Flexible Ceramic suits finishing/polishing applications.

Cool cutting SK840F consists of coated abrasive that provides continuous grain regeneration and self-lubricating grinding layer that reduces heat during grinding process. Product adapts to complex shapes and profiled parts with multiple contours and tight radii. It breaks down easily under hand or light mechanical pressures and works on most metals such as carbon and stainless steels, and high...

Abrasive suits medium to hard metals.

Available in 800, 1,000, and 1,200 grits, CK918X COMPACTGRAIN abrasive is composed of Silicon Carbide grains that provide consistently low Ra finish leaving bright shine on workpiece. Suited for applications requiring fine finishes, product produces finish that mimics that of natural cork but exibits longer life due to complex resin bond structure. Product performs well in centerless and flat...

Abrasive Belt handles heavy grinding.

SK847 heavy-duty ceramic grain abrasive has extremely tough backing that performs well under severe grinding applications like heavy gate removal and power-assisted applications. Belt is top sized with added self-lubricating grinding layer that reduces heat during grinding process in heat sensitive applications. Problems of glazing, loading, and stripping on belts are also eliminated. It has good...
