Indium Hydrophobic & Oleophobic Coatings

Purchase The Technology

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

Hydrophobic Indium Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic indium coating treatments bond water-repellent coatings to indium surfaces, forming anti-smudge layers that are characteristically very easy clean. Aculon’s hydrophobic indium treatments layer nanoscale coatings bonded firmly to indium surfaces which immediately repel water, dust, oil, and dirt. No expensive or complex equipment is needed to apply Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology, which is easily applied through a number of different methods. Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments in most cases repel oil as well as water.

Oleophobic Indium Treatment

Aculon’s range of oleophobic indium coating technologies work with most indium surfaces. The oleophobic indium treatments coat indium surfaces with ultra-thin coatings strongly bonded to indium for oil resistant and anti-smudge performance enhancement. All of Aculon’s oleophobic treatments continue to effectively repel water as well as oil and grime.
