Hydrophobic Silver Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic silver coating treatments provide easy-to-clean and water repellent characteristics to silver surfaces due to the formation of water-resistant nanoscale layers that bond to the underlying substrate. Aculon’s hydrophobic and water-repelling technologies are specially formulated to repel water and most all liquids from silver surfaces, and can be applied quickly and easily in several different cost effective methods. Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments are often inherently oleophobic and oil-repelling as well.

Oleophobic Silver Treatment

Aculon’s oleophobic silver coating technologies bond with silver for high performance anti-smudge surfaces. When treated with Aculon’s oleophobic formulas, silver surfaces gain nanoscale strata which not only repel oil and grime, but are hydrophobic as well and hence also repel water and liquids from the surface.

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.
