Tantalum Hydrophobic & Oleophobic Coatings

Purchase The Technology

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

Hydrophobic Tantalum Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic tantalum coating treatments immediately render tantalum products anti-smudge and very easy clean. This coating technology is highly innovative and very easy to apply without having to resort to costly application apparatus. In a few simple steps (with a range of different application methods available), Aculon’s surface treatment will cover tantalum surfaces with strongly bonded nanoscale layers which repel water, dust, oil, and dirt from the product, significantly reducing the frequency required to clean and keep clean. Most of Aculon’s hydrophobic range of surface treatments repel oil (oleophobic) as well as water etc.

Oleophobic Tantalum Treatment

Aculon’s oleophobic tantalum surface treatments render tantalum surfaces inherently oil-repellent with nanoscale coatings which bond to the tantalum surface. All of Aculon’s oleophobic range of products repel water (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. Some of the many reasons why Aculon is the best technology for your repellency, adhesion, and particle treatment application:
