Hydrophobic Cotton Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic cotton technologies treat cotton surfaces to provide a very easy clean, water and stain repelling surface. There are several methods for easily applying Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology, none of which require any special or expensive machinery. Aculon’s hydrophobic cotton treatments deposit uniform nanoscale layers onto cotton surfaces to repel most all liquids, water, dust, oil, and dirt. In most applications, Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments also repel oil, and are thus effectively oleophobic as well as being hydrophobic.

Oleophobic Cotton Treatment

Aculon’s range of oleophobic cotton technologies bond to cotton and most other fabric varieties. The oleophobic cotton treatments coat cotton surfaces with nanoscale layers that are oil resistant and anti-smudge, and continue to repel water as well as oil.
