Modify Surface Behavior. Improve Performance. Easy to Apply & Durable.

Aculon® has a variety of surface coating technologies capable of functionalizing countless industrial substrate types to have drastically improved performance. Aculon's®  coatings and treatments significantly alter the performance of industrial surfaces with easy to apply, durable, and optically clear treatments. These coatings can functionalize surfaces to be hydrophilic for anti-fog properties, repellent (hydrophobic & oleophobic) for ease of cleaning and antifouling properties, to have improved adhesive characteristics, and also to modify particles for improved behavior. There are numerous performance advantages modifying your industrial surface in countless applications.

Does your industrial product or application need a surface coating?

Industrial surface coating technologies can be used to address a wide variety of problems. Some examples below where an industrial coating will help improve the quality of your product.

  • Fogging and moisture buildup negatively impact optical performance. 
  • Cleaning your surface is time consuming, expensive, or impossible.
  • Fingerprints negatively impact performance of Device.
  • Contamination and fouling materials negatively impact performance.
  • Improved adhesive/bonding characteristics are desired on surfaces being bonded.
  • Particle or powder requires altered surface behavior.

Industrial Surface Coating Platforms

Our Repellent technologies for industrial components will yield a robust a long lasting hydrophobic and oleophobic surface. Typical water contact angles (measurement of surface energy) are in the 115°-120° range and typical oil contact angles are in the 75°-85° range. These treatments are nanoscale, as thin as 2-4 nm thin leaving your part visually unchanged and optically clear. A self assembling process ensures a uniform and even treatment every time!

Our hydrophilic technologies are thin and optically clear and will yield a robust and long lasting hydrophilic surface. Typical water contact angles (measurement of surface energy) are in the <10° range. Common uses include creating fog free optical surfaces.  A self assembling process ensures a uniform and even treatment every time!

Our adhesion promotion technologies improve adhesive and bonding characteristics of oxide containing surfaces such as metal, glass, and synthetic sapphire commonly used in industrial applications. By directly functionalizing the substrate surface, delamination and adhesive failure are significantly reduced. This enables improved adhesive performance in addition to elimination of more complicated and costly processes for improving adhesion.

Aculon®s award-winning waterproof coating technologies improve the performance of all electronics by protecting circuit boards from accidental water immersion and total submersion. Easier to use and more scalable than conformal coatings, NanoProof® performance ranges from accidental water contact to IPX7 and beyond.
