BONDERITE Thin-Film Pretreatment Technology

BONDERITE Thin-Film Pretreatment Technology (formerly known as BONDERITE Tectalis) is the fast, easy, sustainable and efficient alternative to zinc phosphate. It is an innovative multi-metal 

pretreatment which leads to superior corrosion and adhesion resistance. Thin-Film Pretreatment  Technology allows to reduce process steps while reducing energy and almost eliminating sludge generation.

A Nano Process with Thin-Film Coatings

Thin-Film Pretreatment Technology form a cohesive, inorganic, high-density coating. This protective layer is significantly thinner than a traditional zinc phosphate and has been specifically developed for all metal surfaces: steel, zinc and aluminum. Thin-Film

Pretreatment coatings are generally around 50nm in thickness compared to zinc phosphate at 5,000 nm. Thin-Film Pretreatment Technologies combine ecological saving potentials with superior quality and performance.
