Anti-Fouling Coatings

Our patented anti fouling treatments improve repellency of surfaces to repel the most aggressive fouling fluids and materials. Easy to apply technologies are designed for enhanced substrate resistance to fouling from pollutants such as oils, paraffins, and other fouling contaminants. Together we create winning anti-fouling products!

Repel Oil & Paraffin. Easy to apply. Long lasting performance.

Aculon® has a variety of surface modification technologies capable of functionalizing numerous substrate types to have improved anti-fouling characteristics. Aculon's® anti fouling coatings and treatments significantly reduce the ability of fouling materials to contaminate various substrates, including metal and polymeric parts.  In addition these coatings are ultra thin (nanoscale), optically clear, and quite durable. There are numerous performance advantages to having an anti fouling surface on countless applications. Want to learn more?

Does your product or application need an anti fouling treatment?

Aculon anti fouling treatments can be used to address a wide variety of problems. Some examples below where an anti fouling coating will help improve the quality of your product. Reach out to us at +1-858-350-9499 or contact us here to see how we can help!

  • Build up of foulants prevents proper function of equipment
  • Contamination is difficult and time consuming to clean
  • Oil Contamination prevents proper function of optical sensors
  • Parts unable to be cleaned and must be scrapped due to contamination

Anti Fouling Performance

Aculon® Antifouling Treatment typically imparts inital water contact angles of around 120 degrees and oil contact angles around 90 degrees. After significant abrasion cycles, these contact angles are only slightly affected. This technology results in a stable hydrophobic and oleophobic coating that can be applied to nearly all metals.
