Hydrophilic Coating

Hydrophilic Coating surface treatment

Aculon's hydrophilic coating treatments can bond with many different surfaces at the nano-scale to create extremely water-attracting surfaces. This innovative hydrophilic coating technology is extremely easy to apply through many different methods, many requiring little or no costly capitol equipment.


Aculon's patented hydrophilic surface treatments come into their own in environments and conditions characterized by the need for a lubricious or water-attracting surface. Our range of hydrophilic technologies services a wide array of applications and durability requirements.


Aculon serves as a partner to many healthcare companies seeking to create lubricious surfaces on medical devices. Many of our innovative hydrophilic technologies are biocompatible and improve performance in many medical devices. Additionally, our coatings are very easy to apply; many requiring only the submersion of the part in our coating for 30 seconds to be fully functional (with no cure).
