VSM STEARATE Plus - The Perfect Abrasive for Grinding Non-Ferrous Metals and Aluminium
VSM STEARATE Plus fibre disc XF733 optimizes the grinding process for demanding NF metals and aluminium. Reduced chip adhesion and hence less clogging result in double the amount of stock removal and double the service life.
This has been demonstrated through numerous tests performed for a variety of applications at the VSM Technical Centre in Hanover.
STEARATE Plus significantly reduces chip adhesion
"NF metals such as aluminium, bronze and copper are very demanding materials, which tend to clog the abrasive prematurely", states Dennis Senning, VSM Product Manager. When that happens, chips are not removed. They accumulate on the grain tips and after some time, a built-up edge is formed.
Doubling the service life
Field tests demonstrated that XF733 has double the service life compared to the currently leading abrasive when grinding aluminium superstructures for the automotive industry. Similar results of an increase in the service life were achieved when grinding window frames.
And XF733 scored high in another area: The temperature in the contact area is usually extremely high. Backing materials of other products tend to warp and blister. The vulcanized fibre backing of the VSM STEARATE Plus disc, on the other hand, is extremely heat-resistant and remains fully efficient until it reaches the end of its service life.
