Hydrophobic & Oleophobic Coatings for Optical Components & Lasers

Hydrophobic Optics Treatments

Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic laser and optical coatings technology creates repelling surfaces which repels nearly every type of liquid. In addition these treatments are compatible with numerous substrates from metals, polymers, to semiconductors and glass oxides, ensuring that no matter what your optical component is made of there is a compatible Aculon technology. Your specialty optical components can be treated in very easy processing steps to be both hydrophobic and oleophobic. This is often a benefit when a “self-cleaning” surface is desired or when prevention of moisture accumulation is desirable.

Binocular and Rifle Scope Treatments

Aculon’s nanoscale optical coatings technology for binoculars and riflescopes creates a hydrophobic and oleophobic repelling surface which repels nearly every type of liquid. In addition these treatments reduce smudging and adherence of oils should skin contact the optics Binoculars and riflescopes can be treated in very easy processing steps to be both hydrophobic and oleophobic. This is often a benefit when a “self-cleaning” surface is desired or when prevention of moisture accumulation is desirable.

Oleophobic Laser Treatments

Aculon also has oleophobic treatments for lasers and optical components. Similarly to Aculon’s hydrophobic treatment, Aculon’s oleophobic technology for treating laser and optics requires little to no capitol equipment and can make nearly any type of substrate hydrophobic and oleophobic.
