VSM Abrasive Corp.'s COMPACTGRAIN abrasive increases belt and disc life in polishing applications by three to 10 times when compared to conventional abrasives. This value-added product reduces overall costs by reducing steps in the finishing process. The new abrasive uses a unique granulate consisting of many abrasive grains bonded together, which allows the product to systematically wear by constantly regenerating new sharp grinding points throughout the finishing process. This multi-layer construction works well in mechanical applications such as robotic, flat and centerless grinding, as well as off hand and disc polishing. COMPACTGRAIN is available in aluminum oxide and silicon carbide grain, and it can be produced in belt and disc forms.
