Sunglasses: One application for nanotech coatings technology

Aculon's nanoscale technology creates a water-repellant (hydrophobic) and oil-repellant (oleophobic) surfaces to repel water, dust, oil, and dirt on optics. Coated sunglasses or prescription eyewear have significant improvement of their smudge repellency, and smudge removability. Glasses stay cleaner longer, and the coating helps make cleaning easy, resulting in clearer vision and easier maintenance. Aculon offers temporary treatments that can easily be applied in one step by consumers in addition to permanent oem applied treatments.

Aculon's nanoscale technology for optics is also an excellent solution for precision optical components such as sapphire, laser, IR or other highly sensitive optical components requiring a repellent treatment.

Remember, nearly all Aculon technologies cure at room temperature, require no vacuum chamber, and allow for numerous application methods, such as dipping, spraying, or wipe coating. Applying a repellent, oleophobic, and hydrophobic treatment to your optical component has never been easier.
