VSM Abrasives Offers Innovative Cermaic 'Plus' Grain
Aggressive grinding with improved self-sharpening effect results in significant cost savings.
O’FALLON, MO – VSM Abrasives is proud to announce the addition of Ceramic PLUS to their Ceramic product lineup. VSM Ceramics have been designed to cut more aggressively than conventional abrasives, and are engineered for high rates of stock removal in metalworking applications. The Ceramic PLUS grain requires fewer belt changes, meaning reduced cost per part and an excellent cost/performance ratio.
The breakdown of an abrasive grain is a significant factor in overall performance of a coated abrasive product. The new Ceramic PLUS grain is manufactured in a new way that results in a much finer crystalline structure. This unique mineral fracture provides the abrasive product with a longer life, and more aggressive grains with an improved self-sharpening effect. Significant performance advantages include a higher metal removal rate at faster cutting speeds with a lower grinding temperature and less friction.
The Ceramic PLUS products, XK885Y and XK880Y, are available in a Polyester Y-Cloth backing (coarse up to 60 grit) and a Polyester X-Cloth backing (80 grit and finer). The XK885Y is suitable for high pressure, dry/wet grinding applications, while the XK880Y is suitable for medium pressure, dry/wet grinding applications. XK885Y grits available: 20, 24, 36, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100 and 120. XK880Y grits available 24, 36, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100 and 120.
