Microfluidic Surface Treatments. Eliminate Physical Barriers. Liquid Repelling or Attracting.
Aculon® has a variety of surface coating technologies capable of functionalizing countless substrate types to have microfluidic channels. This can be accomplished without traditional physical patterning that requires cutting pathways or addition of physical dams. These ultra thin microfluidic treatments allow for less complexity and far smaller package sizes without the added design requirements of physical chanelling. Both Repellent (hydrophobic & oleophobic) and hydrophilic (water attracting) technologies are available and can be utilized independently or in conjunction with each other to create the desired effect. Used in combination with specialized deposition equipment allows for extremely fine and detailed patterns.
