How You Benefit 

To boost fuel economy automotive manufacturers are reducing vehicle weight wherever they can. On lightweight metal surfaces the Thin-Film Pretreatment Technology made possible by BONDERITE M-NT are the sustainable alternative to traditional phosphate conversion coatings. This cohesive, inorganic, high-density coating is significantly thinner (<100 nm) than a traditional zinc phosphate coating and has been developed for all metal surfaces, e.g. steel, zinc and aluminum. The BONDERITE M-NT protective layer contains no heavy metals, reduces the complexity of the process, and leads to superior corrosion resistance with minimal environmental impact. Additionally Henkel is supporting our customers to process a high amount of aluminum in the metal mix. Overall, the BONDERITE M-NT system enables lightweighting constructions while saving you time, lowering costs, reducing energy requirements and cutting down on waste.
