The VSM self-sharpening solution

In VSM ACTIROX abrasives, the geometrically shaped ceramic abrasive grains wear down at a uniform rate. As they do, they constantly produce new, razor-sharp cutting edges.

Thanks to the microcrystalline grain structure of VSM CERAMICS Plus and VSM CERAMICS, the ceramic grain wears down in a defined manner during grinding, continuously generating new, sharp cutting edges. This is what we call the ‘optimised self-sharpening effect’.

Aluminium oxide and zirconium oxide are finely dispersed throughout the microstructure of VSM ZIRCONIA ALUMINIA. During the grinding process, the materials wear down alternately.

VSM COMPACTGRAIN long-term abrasives are made up of a granulate that contains numerous abrasive grains. Worn abrasive grains are torn off by the grinding forces to expose the sharp tips of unused grains.

Additional grinding-active layers for specific applications

Cool grinding reduces discoloration and structural changes

The VSM TOP SIZE coat is recommended for dry grinding of heat-resistant stainless steels and non-ferrous metals. Thanks to the additional layer with its grinding-inducing additives, the cutting performance is improved whilst the temperature in the contact area is reduced. In addition, the useful life of the abrasive is dramatically enhanced.

ALU-X reduces chip adhesion for longer tool life

The anti-adhesive layer of ALU-X is primarily used for machining non-ferrous metals. It prevents chip adhesion and thus clogging of the abrasive. It also enhances the service life of the abrasive.

Antistatic coating avoids electrostatic charge build-up to keep the workbench clean

Abrasives with an antistatic coat are primarily used for woodworking. They prevent the build-up of an electrostatic charge so that the grinding dust does not adhere to the workpiece or the machine.
