Metal

The right abrasive for every metal application

Irrespective of whether it is stainless steel or aluminium that needs grinding, VSM has the very best in abrasives for metal working from VSM CERAMICS Plus to VSM COMPACTGRAIN and VSM ALUMINIUM OXIDE.

For high stock removal

To achieve a high stock removal rate, the cut has to be aggressive whilst subjecting the operator to the least possible strain. This ensures maximum stock removal per unit of time.

Our range of products for high stock removal rates:

  • VSM CERAMICS Plus
  • VSM CERAMICS
  • VSM ZIRCONIA ALUMINA

For perfect surface finishes

A perfect finish is synonymous with consistent and reproducible surface qualities, defined scratch patterns, roughness and gloss values.

Our range of products for perfect surface finishes:

  • VSM COMPACTGRAIN
  • VSM NON-WOVEN 



Super alloys

Super alloys place the highest demands on abrasives due to their material strength and their precious alloy components: VSM products can live up to these demands.
