The Assembly Fasteners, Inc. (AFI) team specializes in more than just fasteners — our extensive inventory features a full range of abrasives including VSM, timing-saving belts, discs, sheets, rolls, flap discs and products to fit any project dimensions and specifications.

Coated Abrasives

Whether acting as components for power tools (sanders, grinders, etc.) or hand-use, coated abrasives can offer polishing and grinding from very coarse to ultra-fine finish work. Typically bonded to paper, cloth, plastic film, or fibrous substrates, the grit in a given abrasive can range from roughly 2 mm to sub-micrometers. AFI stocks grit rating choices ranging from 24 to 1200.

AFI Trusted Brand

We’re proud to partner with top of the line providers such as Vereinigte Schmirgel- und Maschinen-Fabriken (VSM). Founded in Germany in 1864, VSM has grown into a global leader in abrasives, offering custom development of backings, formulas, and resin blends. A vertically integrated company, VSM controls the entire manufacturing process of their high-performance abrasives, from initial blending to quality testing of the finished product.

Before ever leaving the VSM facility, these abrasives run through a battery of exhaustive grinding tests for durability, grain retention, consistency, flexibility, and more, ensuring that they arrive prepared for top-tier performance.
