San Diego, CA, October 10, 2014 –(PR.com)– Aculon, Inc., a leading nanotechnology enabled performance coatings company, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has allowed a patent covering its method for enhanced bonding of layers on titanium.
United States Patent No. 8,758,899 discloses a method for applying a dense coverage, adherent phosphorus-based coating on the native oxide surface of a material. The disclosed Phosphorus based coatings include phosphate and organo-phosphate coatings. The present invention also provides further derivitization of the phosphorous based coatings to yield dense surface coverage of chemically reactive coatings and osetoblast adhesion-promoting and proliferation-promoting coatings on the native oxide surface of the titanium material.
“One of the benefits of our technology is the ability to change its functionality from repellency to adhesion promotion. The ability to the boost adhesive bond strength using our technologies to many challenging substrates including titanium is valuable for many customers. We now have nearly 30 issued US patents in our IP portfolio,” comments Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon.
Aculon specializes in inventing and commercializing unique surface modification technologies for the electronics, industrial and consumer products industries. The Company’s technologies use low capital intensity methods of application such as dipping and spray and do not involve a vacuum chamber.
Key benefits of Aculon technology include:
• Repellency – Ability to create hydrophobic, superhydrophic and oleophobic surfaces to repel water, oil, 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 adhesion promoting treatments.
