Hydrophobic Sapphire Treatments
Aculon’s nanoscale hydrophobic sapphire treatment technology creates a repelling surfaces which repels nearly every type of liquid. In addition these treatments are compatible with numerous substrates for numerous applications ensuring that no matter what your sapphire optical component is used for there is a compatible Aculon technology. Your sapphire parts can be treated in very easy processing steps to be both hydrophobic and oleophobic. This is often a benefit when a “self-cleaning” surface is desired or when prevention of moisture accumulation is desirable during critical optical applications.
Oleophobic Sapphire Treatments
Aculon also has oleophobic treatments for sapphire lenses and parts. Similarly to Aculon’s hydrophobic treatment, Aculon’s oleophobic technology for treating sapphires requires little to no capitol equipment and can make nearly any type of substrate hydrophobic and oleophobic.
