Henkel has introduced Bonderite 1455 pre-saturated wipes for body-shop repair processes. The wipes are said to provide excellent adhesion and corrosion protection for primer and subsequent print layers.

The application is designed to be very straightforward: the user just wipes the bare metal horizontally and vertically, waits for a few minutes and then starts priming. No tools are required, there is no need for masking and there is no overspray to rectify.

The chromium-free, low-VOC wipes are kind to both the environment and the operator. After use and when dry, they become standard waste.

Bonderite 1455 wipes can be used on aluminium, hot and cold rolled steel, zinc and zinc alloys, and galvanised surfaces.

Further benefits

  • In the body shop, Bonderite 1455 provides both good adhesion and corrosion protection and a much tighter repair process by eliminating several stages, particularly overspray.
  • Once Bonderite 1455 is wiped onto bare metal, the sprayer can mix the primer and apply it as soon as the substrate is dry.
  • There is no likelihood of the mixed primer exceeding its use by time while any overspray is rectified — a danger that results in even more spray-gun cleaning.
  • All pre-treatments can be applied in the spray booth, eliminating the risk of dust contamination.
  • Bonderite 1455 converts every surface it touches and can even be used on relatively inaccessible areas.
  • It is suitable for up to 60 per cent of all body-shop repairs and is particularly useful for coating knife-edge mouldings, door edges and wheel hubs, which, when etch-primed, can be easily scuffed.
  • Unlike etch primer, Bonderite 1455 cannot absorb humidity if left uncoated, effectively attracting moisture onto the metal surface.
  • For the modern accident repair shop, Bonderite 1455 wipes save time, cost and waste, helping to maximise workflow and profitability.
