Aculon Receives Patent for Application of Organophosphorus Treatments to Cutting Tools

San Diego, CA | Posted on November 4th, 2011

United States Patent Application No. 12,080,058 discloses the process required for applying organophosphorus acids having a fluorinated constituent to cutting tools and razors. The organophosphorus fluorinated material can either be adhered directly to the metal edge or indirectly to through an intermediary organometallic layer. The invention also provides for a method of depositing the organophosphorus fluorinated material as a self assembled monolayer or as a multilayer treatment.

"We believe that this technology offers a significant advantage to the current thick polymer based treatments currently available for cutting tools such as razor blades." comments Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon.
