VSM Abrasives Corp. introduces its SK855X flagship coated abrasive product. It features an enhanced self-sharpening ceramic grain that the company says provides increased service life. Engineered to provide an aggressive cut and produce higher rates of stock removal than conventional grains, the crimson red SK855X product boasts a high cut rate with a cool cut feature.
VSM says its aggressive grain orientation, along with its cool cut grinding aid coating, provides 30% or more productivity compared to the existing ceramic product. This product is designed to work with heat sensitive materials such as stainless steel, titanium alloys and superalloys in medium- to high-pressure backstand and power assist applications. It is available in a comprehensive grit range from 24 to 120 and will satisfy many grinding applications in belt and disc form.
