Repel Oil & Water. Inhibit Corrosion. Long Lasting Performance.

Aculon® has a variety of surface modification technologies capable of functionalizing blades, razors and cutting tools to have improved longevity with no impact on blade sharpness. Aculon's® blade and razor coatings and treatments are highly repellent to oil and water drastically improving longterm performance without any impacts on initial performance. In addition these coatings are ultra thin (nanoscale), optically clear, and quite durable. There are numerous performance advantages to having your blade or cutting tool functionalized with a high performance surface coating.

Does your blade or cutting tool need a repellent treatment?

Aculon treatments for cutting tools can be used to address a wide variety of issues. Some examples below where a repellent coating will help improve the quality of your product.

  • Blade edge dulls quickly after use.
  • Current coating solution is costly & time consuming.
  • Exposure to water quickly causes degredation of performance.
  • Blade is not sufficiently lubricious.

Repellent Cutting Tool Coating Performance

Aculon® treatments for cutting tools are highly repellent to nearly all liquids, typically imparting initial 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.
