Hydrophobic Tin Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic tin coating treatments bond with tin surfaces to repel water, oil, and dirt and effectively render the treated product anti-smudge and very easy-clean. These extremely fine (nanoscale) water-resistant treatments actually bond with surfaces to form resilient and long-lasting hydrophobic (water-repellent) surface layers that introduce new performance characteristics to treated products. The hydrophobic coating technology can be easily applied to surfaces via several different no-mess, no-fuss methods, without any expensive additional application equipment. Aculon’s hydrophobic treatments often repel oil (oleophobic) as well.

Oleophobic Tin Treatment

Aculon’s oleophobic tin coating technologies bond to tin surfaces for added anti-smudge and grime protection. Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic and bond with almost any tin alloy to repel oil and water.

The Aculon Advantage

Aculon’s treatments for repellency (superhydrophobic and oleophobic), adhesion promotion, and particles offer numerous advantages over competing technologies.
