How to improve high temperature coating hydrophobicity and oleophobicity in demanding fuel injector and combustion applications?  SilcoTek® answered the challenge by developing a high temperature moisture and oil repelling coating able to remain stable at temperatures of 300c and higher.  Read the complete presentation.

New Coating Hydrophobic and Oleophobic

SilcoTek achieved significant improvement in hydrophobicity and oleophobicity compared to the uncoated DLC surface.  More impressively, the new coating remained stable when exposed to high temperatures for over 24 hours.  

SilcoTek® coatings are the ideal hydrophobic and oleophobic solution to challenging environments.  Applications include:

  • Analytical sampling
  • Refining/petrochemical
  • Oil and Gas exploration and transport
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
