Hydrophobic and Oleophobic Coatings for Glass & Ceramic

Purchase the Technology

Aculon introduces Aculon Glass Repellency Treatment, the best-in-class glass repellency technology. Make any glass substrate hydrophobic, oleophobic, and repellent to nearly any liquid! Aculon’s Glass Repellency Treatment is abrasion resistant, easy to apply, optically clear and ultra thin. It can even be applied via several application methods!

Hydrophobic Glass & Ceramic Coating

Glass and hydrophilic ceramics attract water because of polar hydrogen bonding with water molecules, and this problem can be exacerbated in porous ceramics. Aculon’s hydrophobic glass & ceramic coatings form powerful bonds with these materials to create a molecular layer that water will not bond with. Treated glass and ceramic surfaces immediately become water-resistant, anti-smudge coatings and very easy to clean.

Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic glass & ceramic coating creates a hydrophobic (water-repellent) surface to repel water, dust, oil, and dirt on surfaces allowing for easy-clean glass & ceramics. Aculon’s innovative hydrophobic coating technology can be applied quite simply using several different techniques, none of which require significant expenditure on application equipment.

Oleophobic Glass & Ceramic Treatment

Aculon also has a full range of oleophobic glass & ceramic coating technologies which bond with nearly all types of glass & ceramics. These oleophobic glass & ceramic treatments create an oil resistant, anti-smudge surface which stay cleaner for longer. All of Aculon’s oleophobic treatments are also hydrophobic.
