Home > Press > Aculon Announces New Multi-Surface Repellency Treatment

Abstract:
Aculon, Inc. is excited to announce the release of their newest repellent nanoscale surface treatment, Aculon E. This new coating utilizes Aculon's proprietary TMC (transition metal complex) technology to provide a hydrophobic (water repelling) and oleophobic (oil repelling) surface. This revolutionary repellent treatment is extremely easy to apply and bonds with nearly any substrate including metals, plastics, glass, painted surfaces, epoxies and more.

Aculon Announces New Multi-Surface Repellency Treatment

San Diego, CA | Posted on October 25th, 2013

"The introduction of a durable multi-surface oleophobic coating is very valuable for numerous industries," says Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon. "We took our hydrophobic coating and modified it to have oleophobic characteristics as well. After a year of testing in numerous applications we are now ready to make this broadly available."

Unlike other repellent technologies, this ultra-thin optically clear coating is a one-step process that is easy to apply and doesn't require complex equipment. The highly hydrophobic and oleophobic characteristics in addition to ease of use mean that the potential applications for Aculon E are limitless. Potential applications include but are not limited to: Electronics, mold release, industrial, optics, consumer goods, easy clean surfaces, and numerous others.

About Aculon
Founded in 2004, Aculon specializes in inventing and commercializing unique molecular-scale surface and interfacial coatings leveraging nanotechnology discoveries made at Princeton University. The Company's breakthrough technology outperforms all known alternatives in characteristics such as repellency, particle treatments, and adhesion.

Key benefits of Aculon technology include:
• Repellency - Treat numerous surfaces to repel water, oil, solvents, and most all liquids.
• Particle Treatment - Functionalize nanoparticles to improve many characteristics such as hydrophobicity, oleophobicity, and adhesion.
• Adhesion - Boost the adhesion of challenging surfaces with Aculon's adhesion promoting treatments.
• Value - Molecular scale modification can transform surfaces and interfaces to provide unique performance, simpler processes, and favorable economics.
Aculon's team brings together seasoned executives from the specialty chemicals industry, professional investors experienced in early-stage technology companies, key scientists from Princeton University, and proven business development professionals.
