Performance requirements for bonded coatings in the automotive sector

Bonded coatings form a thin lubricant layer after curing, providing clean and dry lubrication for protection against wear and corrosion. The lubricant layer adheres firmly and cannot drip off. Bonded coatings are used in many areas in the automotive sector, from plain bearings and safety belts to door locks, guide rails and seals.
