VSM STEARATE Plus: Grinding without clogging

The STEARATE performance boost

The new additional anti-adhesive layer ensures the efficiency of VSM STEARATE Plus across the entire service life of the abrasive where as conventional abrasives are more likely to clog, which has a severely detrimental effect on the performance of the abrasive.

Ideal for non-ferrous metals

NF metals tend to clog the abrasive. The chips can no longer be removed and build up on the tip of the grain. This is how built-up edges are formed. The grain stops working and the abrasive can no longer be used.

VSM STEARATE Plus prevents chip adhesion and therefore clogging of the abrasive. As a result, the service life of the abrasive is enhanced considerably and stock removal remains high.
