Hydrophobic Silicon Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic silicon coating materials bond with many different silicon compounds at the nano-scale to create hydrophobic easy-clean, water resistant, and anti-smudge coatings. Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic silicon coating creates a hydrophobic (water-repellent) layer which repels water, dust, oil, and dirt, rendering silicon products and components very easy to clean and keep clean. Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology is extremely easy to apply via several different methods, requiring no significant outlay in further equipment. The majority of Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments also repel oil.

Oleophobic Silicon Treatment

Aculon also has a full range of oleophobic silicon coating technologies which bond with silicon surfaces to create an oleophobic, oil resistant, and anti-smudge layer on silicon products or components. Aculon’s oleophobic treatments also repel water as they are inherently hydrophobic as well.

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.
