Bonderite Dry Film Lubricants

The Bonderite range of dry film lubricants are based on the “Acheson Process”, developed in the late 1800’s by Edward Goodrich Acheson. These lubricants differ to traditional liquid lubrication, and can be used in applications where wet lubrication or re-lubrication are not possible.

The dry film lubricants manufactured by Henkel under the Bonderite (legacy Acheson) brand can be applied by applications including:

  • Brushing
  • Rolling
  • Spraying (Conventional, Airmix, Airless or Electrostatic)
  • Screen Printing
  • Dip Spin
  • Tumble Spray
  • Dipping

These products are based on one of four lubricating pigments, dispersed in a range of solvents or water.
