Ecological sustainability

Gardobond® X 4661, also known as the SAM technology (Self-Assembling-Molecules), was already being sold as the first metal- and chromium-free pretreatment technology for aluminum wheels – long before chromium-based technologies were banned by law. This is our ambition: to develop tomorrow’s technologies today.
