Aculon, Inc, a leading provider of surface modification coatings was recognized by Today’s Medical Developments as a leader in the hydrophilic coatings industry.Read the Article here
For many years, Aculon has offered coatings with the ability to impart hydrophilicity to many different surfaces. Our hydrophilic coatings create water contact angles of less than 10 degrees, allowing water to wet out in a thin layer across the surface. We have found great success in optical and medical device applications that need even wetting properties.
“The global hydrophilic coatings market is expected to grow from $9.69 billion in 2016 to reach $15.04 billion by 2023 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6%.”
To meet this growing demand, in 2017, Aculon has launched a new line of hydrophilic coatings, AcuWet. AcuWet provides hydrophilic solutions for most surfaces. With AcuWet, Aculon serves as a partner to many healthcare companies seeking to create lubricious surfaces on medical devices. Many of our innovative hydrophilic technologies are biocompatible and improve performance in many medical devices. Additionally, our coatings are very easy to apply; many requiring only the submersion of the part in our coating for 30 seconds to be fully functional (with no cure).
