Water Wetting Aluminum. Long lasting performance.

Aculon's hydrophilic aluminum coating technologies bond with metal at the nano-scale to create a highly hydrophilic functionalized surface. The nanoscale coating creates a hydrophilic (water-attracting) surface to attract water and allow it to easily wick across the surface of the aluminum. Aculon's innovative hydrophilic coating technology is extremely easy to apply through many different methods, requiring no costly capitol equipment or complex application procedures. As with all metals, aluminum is naturally hydrophilic, with liquid contact angles less than 90 degrees. Aculon technology routinely boasts liquid contact angles around 10 degrees. Want to learn more?
