Hydrophobic Zinc Coating

Aculon’s hydrophobic zinc coating treatments form nanoscale layers on zinc surfaces which help keep off water, dust, oil, and dirt, which spells anti-smudge and easy-clean performance enhancements for virtually any zinc or zinc-plated product. Aculon’s hydrophobic (water-repellent) surface formulas immediately bond to the zinc surfaces and immediately begin repelling water, and most times they are able to repel oil (oleophobic) as well. Treated surfaces gain new characteristics without altering the function or significantly changing the dimension of the product and there is no painfully tedious or time-consuming application process involved. In fact, Aculon’s hydrophobic coating technology is easily applied in several different ways without the need for any costly equipment.

Oleophobic Zinc Treatment

Aculon’s oleophobic zinc coating technologies bond to almost any zinc surface to really repel oil and grime for exceptional anti-smudge performance. Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic, and will repel water and dirt as efficiently as oil and grime.
