The oSa® trademark is the quality seal for tested safety

Only tested, high-quality tools are awarded the internationally trademarked oSa® label. In demand worldwide, these tools are in a different league to those from vendors who have not committed to safety standards. Use of the oSa® trademark on product labelling is granted only to companies that voluntarily undertake to comply with the European safety standards for grinding tools as well as stricter production and testing regulations. These abrasives therefore meet the highest safety standards and, if general work and safety instructions are observed, offer a maximum level of protection for users of the product.

As a member of oSa®, VSM meets the following requirements:

  • The entire production process for VSM abrasives is monitored
  • VSM has a certified quality management system in place
  • VSM conducts regular production inspections according to EN standards
  • VSM abrasives are always fully traceable
  • VSM seeks to achieve maximum compliance with ESH (environment, safety and health) standards

  • The cloth is utilised as a backing for abrasives after in-house finishing has been completed, to adjust elongation and flexibility.
  • High tear strength
  • Depending on the application, cloth backings are available from extremely flexible (E-cloth) to extremely sturdy (Z-cloth)

Paper backings

  • Stretch-resistant
  • Lower weight compared to cloth
  • The lighter the paper, the more flexible the backing becomes
  • From 100 g/m2 for off-hand grinding to approx. 300 g/m2 for machine flat grinding
