Acu­lon, a lead­ing thin film sur­face treat­ment com­pa­ny, cre­ates and mar­kets treat­ments for the elec­tron­ics, oil & gas and Spe­cial­ty mar­kets. Acu­lon, based in San Diego, CA, USA has mar­ket lead­ing sten­cil and PCB treat­ments. With more and more demand com­ing from Europe for this tech­nol­o­gy, Acu­lon rec­og­nized they need­ed to have a local pres­ence to prop­er­ly serve the Euro­pean market.


Our cus­tomers sim­ply told us that they want­ed us to have Euro­pean tech­ni­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion and local tech­ni­cal sup­port” says Edward Hugh­es, CEO of Acu­lon. “We are very excit­ed about the coop­er­a­tion with Chris Per­abo, Ivo Verz­i­jl­ber­gen and the rest of the CAPLINQ team. We believe that with the sup­port of CAPLINQ Europe, we can serve our exist­ing cus­tomers, devel­op new ones and be more cost com­pet­i­tive in the Euro­pean market.”

Aculon NanoClear, NanoProof and Repellency treatments

With Nan­oClear, Acu­lon has proven itself as an award-win­ning tech­nol­o­gy leader to the sten­cil indus­try. Acu­lon Nan­oClear® is the best-in-class sten­cil treat­ment tech­nol­o­gy that improves print qual­i­ty, increas­es effi­cien­cy, low­ers total costs and enhances print­ing with small apertures.

Acu­lon’s award-win­ning NanoProof® Series offer cus­tomers a range of PCB water­proof­ing solu­tions from pro­tect­ing against acci­den­tal water dam­age (NanoProof 1.0) to IPX7, immer­sion in water at one meter depth for 30 min­utes (NanoProof 3.5, NanoProof 4.0), to greater bar­ri­er prop­er­ties that can with­stand 100 hours immer­sion in sweat solu­tions and some of the most strin­gent test meth­ods devel­oped for non-her­met­ic com­po­nents (NanoProof 5.1).

Aculon’s has a range of repel­len­cy treat­ments which are super­hy­dropho­bic and oleo­pho­bic as well as met­al-repel­len­cy mate­ri­als for total pro­tec­tion to a spe­cif­ic envi­ron­ment. Acu­lon coat­ings can be as thin as 2–4 nanome­ters or upto sev­er­al microns thick and can be applied on sen­si­tive elec­tron­ics and oth­er com­po­nents. Min­i­mal cap­i­tal equip­ment is need­ed and already applied by var­i­ous OEMS.

Aculon and Caplinq — A PERFECT FIT

The range of Aculon’s high end spe­cial­ty sur­face treat­ment mate­ri­als com­bined with Caplinq Europe’s team of engi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal pro­fes­sion­als focused on spe­cial­ty chem­i­cals is a good foun­da­tion for future successes.

From the first meet­ings with Edward and Mario (Gat­tuso), we were con­vinced that Aculon’s prod­ucts have a high poten­tial in the Euro­pean mar­ket,” stat­ed Chris Per­abo, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of CAPLINQ. “Sur­face treat­ments on a nanoscale is the future, and Aculon’s expe­ri­ence and exper­tise in this area are sec­ond to none. This part­ner­ship is sure to gen­er­ate more and more com­mer­cial successes.”
