BONDERITE® Electroceramics Coating is a patented plasma deposition with outstanding features designed to be applied to aluminium, magnesium and titanium.

The eco-friendly technology complies with RoHS and ELV and contains no heavy metals or chromium. 

By creating a ceramic layer that can vary from 3 to 50 μm in thickness, BONDERITE® ECC provides excellent corrosion protection, high resistance to chemicals and temperatures up to 1,100°C. This coating technology facilitates weight reduction for individual parts by using light metals instead of steel.

Application areas

BONDERITE® Electroceramics Coating is a multi-functional coating based on titanium oxide that also functions as a final finish.

Electroceramics Coating increase the efficiency of many applications, reducing process costs and allowing customers to replace steel parts with lighter metals. ECC can be used on components made of aluminium, magnesium, titanium and related alloys in severe environments, e.g.:

  • Marine engines, exhaust parts, outboards.
  • Parts for automotive, heavy trucks and aerospace. 
  • Small engines, e.g. lawn or garden equipment.
  • Consumer electronics and cookware.
  • Architecture and outdoor furniture.
