New process: Anti Fog

Clear vision without limitations



SCHNEIDER has solved a problem well-known by everybody wearing glasses: Blurred vision caused by fogged lenses.

The Anti Fog process can be applied to any hard coated, anti-reflective or mirror-coated lens, skipping the hydrophobic last layer. It provides a clear view for all ophthalmic lenses, sun lenses, sports lenses and visors.

Contrary to other technologies, SCHNEIDER uses a physical process for a long-term and reliable coating layer instead of hazardous sprays or cloths soaked with harmful substances that only provide short-term effects and may cause allergic reactions with the end user or smeared lenses.

The very thin layer of a special alloy can be applied either by ion-beam sputtering or by inserting a consumable into the crucible of the EB-gun.

Permanently attached to the lens coating, the layer provides a very high surface energy. As a result, water droplets are spread into a liquid film which remains transparent to the eye.

To preserve the Anti Fog protection layer and its easy to clean properties, the lenses simply have to be cleaned and sealed with a specially developed Anti-Fog-cloth for day to day use.

The result: Clear vision in all circumstances.
