Tough on Paint, Gentle on the Environment
With new Bonderite C-MC 21130, Henkel has launched an environmentally sound cleaner for all uncured paints that really does set new standards. The innovative product offers a 50 percent reduction in volatile organic compounds (VOC) compared to solvent-based cleaners.
Bonderite C-MC 21130 dissolves both aqueous and solvent-containing paints, lacquers, varnishes, latex, rubber, resins, and electrophoretic deposits (EPD) – all without problem. It will even remove adhesives such as cyanoacrylates, silicones, two-component PU silicones and other bi-component polyurethanes, provided they have not completely dried.
The cleaner does not burn, which means that no special precautions are required for transportation, handling and storage. And it is odorless at application temperatures up to 40°C. It is also biostable.
Bonderite C-MC 21130 – simple to apply
Bonderite C-MC 21130 is remarkably simple to use. Simply apply with a brush or spray gun and wipe the paint away with a cloth. The cleanliness of the outcome is apparent within minutes. The innovative water-borne cleaner is ideal for use in all firms and production facilities that use paints and coatings, serving as an effective replacement for conventional – potentially dangerous, toxic and combustible – solvent-based cleaners.
A further especially sustainable product being showcased at Parts2Clean is the Henkel cleaner Bonderite C-NE 6250. With this product, Henkel has developed a water-borne bactericide-free and salt-free neutral cleaner, suitable for low-temperature applications, which – even during replenishment – requires no bactericide addition. Bonderite C-NE 6250 therefore not only simplifies production processes, it also minimizes danger to worker health, therefore also facilitating successful implementation of the EU’s biocide directive.
Innovative bactericide-free neutral cleaner
Bonderite C-NE 6250 undergoes exceptionally low levels of foaming in soft water, while also exhibiting high water hardness stability. This has enabled a key problem in the use of water-miscible cleaners to be resolved, leading to long bath lifetimes and thus also a reduction in both environmental impact and production cost. This neutral cleaner is suitable for all iron alloys, steel, cast iron, aluminum, aluminum alloys and non-ferrous metals including copper and brass.
Cleaners may be used after machining operations (milling, cutting, drilling, grinding) to prepare the components for the next process stages such as assembly, adhesive-bonding, coating, painting or storage.
