Hydrophobic Nickel Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic nickel coating materials bond with many different types of nickel at the nano-scale to create hydrophobic easy-clean, water resistant, and anti-smudge coatings. Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic nickel coating creates a hydrophobic (water-repellant) surface to repel water, dust, oil, and dirt on surfaces allowing for easy-clean nickel. Aculons’ innovative hydrophobic coating technology is extremely easy to apply through many different methods, requiring no costly capitol equipment. A majority of Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments have the added benefit of being oleophobic as well.

Oleophobic Nickel Treatment

Aculon also has a full range of oleophobic nickel coating technologies which bond with nearly all types of nickel. These oleophobic nickel treatments create an oleophobic, oil resistant, and anti-smudge surface. All of Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic.

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.
