DURALON

The DURALON product family, introduced by COTEC, realize outstanding hydrophobic and oleophobic surface characteristics.

All DURALON products are based on the latest nanolayer technology and the molecular structure meets the highest industrial requirements. By using these permanent, transparent and easy-to-clean coating layers different material surfaces like glass, metal or ceramics can be improved.

By reduction of the surface energy, Duralon provides a high-quality surface finish against finger prints, smudge or other environmental impacts by including an increased surface smoothness.

Long experience and constant product development with polymer chemistry and process control make COTEC the ideal partner for surface modification by organic substances. Our development laboratory and in-house manufacturing provide comprehensive solutions for your requirements. We develop individually adapted materials, systems and processes for our customers.
Coating equipment for functional hydrophobic surface modification with volume based coating technology.   

Almost all Duralon products can be applied by PVD technology or by wet chemical processes.

Performance and application

Although it was originally developed for the ophthalmic industry, DURALON products can be distinguished through their high optical transparency and their thinness at the nanoscale (8-10nm). Despite this thinness, their chemical anchoring onto the treated surface ensures a long-lasting performance.

Through our many years of experience in the field of thin layer technologies, we are able to offer you various methods of application. Most of our products can be applied through PVD processes, spray-coating or even immersion.



 

The hydrophobic materials can be separated by performance characteristics like contact angle against water, friction coefficients and abrasion resistance like described within our technical datasheets.
