Aculon is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has allowed a patent covering its method for applying organometallic film to substrates, which has been perfected by the company over the past 6 years.

Aculon Innovative Method for Applying Organometallic films to Substrates Receives Patent

San Diego, CA | Posted on October 3rd, 2010

United States Patent Application No. 11/985,151 discloses the process required for applying an organometallic film on substrates, particularly polymer substrates, in which the metal of the organometallic has "f" orbital electrons. Aculon's novel organometallic films represent a breakthrough in hydrophobic and oleophobic film technology, allowing for a level of hydrophobicity and oleophobicity thought unachievable on numerous substrates.

"We are delighted that our invention has been granted a United States patent. We believe that this approach offers a superior alternative to existing PVD film technologies, offering manufacturers affordable hydrophobic and oleophobic films without the drawbacks associated with traditional film deposition," comments Dr. Eric Hanson, Vice President of Technology.
