Hydrophobic Gold Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic gold coating materials form nanoscale bonds with many types of gold compounds and alloys creating easy clean, water repelling surfaces. Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic gold coating creates a water-repelling layer that repel water and most all other liquids from surfaces, rendering them easy to clean and resistant to most liquids. Application of Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology is very simple and can be done in a number of different ways. These easy application methods require no costly equipment. The majority of Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments also have the added benefit of being oleophobic, repelling oil and grime at the same time as repelling water.

Oleophobic Gold Treatment

All of Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic. Aculon full range of oleophobic gold coating technologies bond with nearly all types of gold. These hydrophobic and oleophobic gold treatments create a water repellent, oil repellent anti-smudge surface.

The Aculon Advantage
