Dutch term or phrase: Bordelen
This refers to aerosol cans. It appears in contexts such as 'meet de bordelrande op 1 plaats...' 'ingenekte gebordelde hoogte', 'ongebordelde romp' and 'bordelrandbreedte'. Could it be 'borderen'? ie 'met of als en rand omgeven, syn. omzomen?

English translation:flange
Explanation:
Ik denk dat het een germanisme is.
bördelen = flenzen = to flange,
Bördelrand = flens/flensrand (opstaande kraag/rand v. buiseinde) = flanged edge,
or flenskraag = flange collar
I hope that helped.

"Bordelen"


Explanation:
Dear lucy,

You don't want to go for the translation of 'bordelen' (Dutch) as this means 'brothels' in English...(as you surely know).
Eva is right: 'flange collar' or 'flange edge' is the correct answer in your context

Best regards,

EDS
