Henkel duaLCysThe Bonderite duaLCys process has been used in a precision tool, machining project at German customer Mapal, claims Henkel. The company says the process can be tailored to the customer’s needs across their value chain from casting and machining to assembly. One of the stated benefits is the recycling of the cleaner into the lubricant bath rather than discarding it as waste.

The duaLCys process utilises the synergy between a lubricant and a cleaner says Henkel. Its Bonderite C-NE 10466 water-based neutral cleaner, and L-MR 21466 cutting fluid are both claimed to be free of boron and bactericides and have good bio stability. The system is suitable for most metal substrates, including steel, stainless steel, cast iron and aluminium alloys, claims the company.
