Abstract:
Aculon, Inc., a leading nanotechnology enabled performance coatings company, today announced that its highly successful optical lens treatment is now available for the treatment of sapphire substrates.

Aculon Announces New Sapphire Lens Repellency Treatment

San Diego, CA | Posted on September 22nd, 2012

Aculon's treatment for sapphire substrates will allow for the application of a highly durable repellent hydrophobic and oleophobic treatment on these substrates. This technology is only 2-4 nm thick, optically clear, and is easily applied at Aculon's facility.

"The introduction of an optically clear durable repellent treatment for sapphire lenses is very valuable for industries using sapphire substrates," says Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon. "We took our optical treatments and modified it to work for sapphire crystals and lenses. After a year of testing in oil and other industrial applications we are now ready to make this broadly available. The treatment increases the ease of cleaning, decreases the required cleaning frequency, and thereby reducing equipment downtime."

Sapphire substrates commonly used for watch crystals and optical viewports in the oil, industrial, aerospace, and military markets can all be easily treated with Aculon's sapphire treatment.
