Products from VSM

VSM Actirox

ACTIROX stands for geometrically shaped ceramic abrasive grain that offers maximum stock removal. An aggressive cut combined with low contact pressure results in less noise and vibration, and less strain for the machine and its operators. Faster grinding significantly reduces the machining time. The TOP SIZE coat results in a cool cut, which significantly reduces material waste and renders further reworking unnecessary.


  • Maximum stock removal
  • Lower operating expenses
  • Save up to 50% costs
  • Reduce the amount of machine down-times


  • AK890Y excels in stationary applications such as removing welds and burrs as part of backstand grinding
  • AF799 and AF890 fibre discs are ideal for bevelling and grinding out flaws with high-speed angle grinders

> The geometrically shaped ceramic grain guarantees maximum stock removal
> The grain breaks down in a defined fashion constantly producing new sharp edges
