Aluminum Nitride Hydrophobic & Oleophobic Coatings

Purchase The Technology

Aculon now offers metal coatings (intended for use with aluminum nitride) direct to purchasers. View more information below.

Hydrophobic Aluminum Nitride Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic aluminum nitride coating materials bond with many aluminum nitride surfaces for water resistant, anti-smudge and easy clean coatings. Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology can be added easily, without any costly equipment, a with a number of simple methods to choose from. Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic aluminum nitride coating forms nanoscale layers bonded to the surface which repel water, dust, oil, and dirt from aluminum, providing these surfaces easy clean and dirt resistant performance enhancements. Most of Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments also repel oil.

Oleophobic Aluminum Nitride Treatment

Aculon’s range of oleophobic aluminum nitride coating technologies bond with the majority of aluminum nitride surfaces. These oleophobic aluminum nitride treatments form nanoscale layers bonded to the surface that are oil resistant and anti-smudge, efficiently repelling oil and grime from aluminum derivatives. Aculon’s oleophobic treatments also repel water and moisture as well as oil.

The Aculon Advantage

Aculon’s treatments for repellency (superhydrophobic and oleophobic), adhesion promotion, and particles offer numerous advantages over competing technologies. Flexible, easy to apply and cost effective treatments make Aculon’s treatments the nanotech solution for numerous applications.
