Lightweight Construction in Automobiles

As automotive technology continues to develop, aluminum wheels are becoming simply part of the standard package, even in the case of the smaller classes of car. However, when it comes to ensuring the optimum corrosion protection of this material, choosing the right pretreatment is crucial.

Ceramic Coatings for Aluminum

Under the Bonderite brand, Henkel Adhesive Technologies is offering a new generation of coatings for aluminum applications. The improved formulation available with Bonderite M-NT 4595 not only reduces overall process cost, it also enables the development of new wheels with improved properties and lower weight. It is already being widely used by leading manufacturers around the world.

This ceramic coating tailored to alloy wheels offers superb adhesion to the metal, while its improved processability and reduced application temperature mean that manufacturers also benefit from greater simplicity of use compared to standard solutions. Added to this, the coating is free from chrome and heavy metals and produces less in the way of waste products.
