Henkel’s Bonderite metal pretreatment paint process is a chemical coating designed for processes where an organic polymeric emulsion chemically deposits on the surface of a clean metal substrate. This pretreatment process reduces the number and complexity of stages involved in painting parts.

The autodeposition process formulates a uniform film over the entire surface of the work piece, even in difficult-to-reach areas. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) photos show a uniform, tight, autodeposited wet film before coalescence/curing, and consistent coating thickness around edge of razor blade. This enables the coating dispersion to flow into and around the most complex shapes.

  • Masking for Surface Finishing

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
