Hydrophobic Borosilicate Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic borosilicate coating materials bonds with many borosilicate varieties for easy clean, water resistant, anti-smudge coatings. Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic borosilicate coating creates an extremely fine uniform layer which repels water, dust, oil, and dirt from borosilicate surfaces for easy clean and dirt resistant performance enhancements. Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology is very simply applied via a number of different techniques that require no special or costly machinery. The majority of Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments are also inherently oleophobic and thus effectively repel oil and grime as well as liquids.

Oleophobic Borosilicate Treatment

Aculon also has a full range of oleophobic borosilicate coating technologies which bond with most borosilicates. These oleophobic borosilicate treatments form oil resistant, anti-smudge surface layers which help borosilicate products and components stay clean of oil and grime. All of Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic.
