Optics

Aculon’s thin-film coatings create a water resistant coating (hydrophobic) and oil-repellant (oleophobic) surfaces to repel water, dust, oil, and dirt on optics.

Display

OEM and Consumer applied coatings have been developed for electronic displays. Cell phones, PDAs, iPods, iPhones, laptops, and touch screens can be coated with Aculon’s permanent nanoscale easy-clean coating.

Electronics

Aculon’s non-stick coatings, pro-stick/adhesion coatings, and anti-oxidation coatings can be used on a broad range of materials used in electronic applications including metals, metal oxides, polymers, and ceramics.

Industrial

Aculon’s non-stick coatings, pro-stick/adhesion coatings, and anti-oxidation coatings can be used on a broad range of materials used in industrial applications including metals, metal oxides, polymers, and ceramics.

Consumer

Aculon has developed cleaning solutions that not only do a great job of cleaning stainless steel, jewelry and automotive wheels, but coat the surfaces as well. The coatings make surfaces easy to clean and maintain and is very user friendly, and simple to apply.

Nanoparticles

Aculon has exclusively licensed patented technology from Princeton University for coating oxide surfaces, including metal oxide and yttria nanoparticles.

Chrome Replacement

Aculon's latest SAMP formulation replaces Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6), which is currently used in many different primers and conversion coatings for increased adhesion of coatings to surfaces.
