Our long-lasting anti-fog lens coating is ideal for areas with high humidity

Wearing safety eyewear in places with frequent temperature fluctuations or high-humidity environments can cause the lenses to fog up, leading to severe or continuous fogging issues.

Not only is this frustrating but there are also productivity and compliance issues that come along with it. uvex’s pioneering lens coatings deliver the very best in German engineering. Developed in our own manufacturing facilities in Fürth, Germany, our lens coatings are permanent even after repeated cleaning. This offers great value for money and means you can get on with the job at hand without any distractions from your eyewear.

It's important to remember not all anti-fog coatings are created equal

Chemically engineered to not wash off, uvex’s anti-fog coatings are fundamentally different from others – that’s because all uvex anti-fog coatings are hydrophilic, which causes fog moisture to hit the lens and absorb into the coating eliminating fog quickly and efficiently (see visual below).

This is a drastic change from the fog resistance that you’re used to as most competitive anti-fog coatings are hydrophobic, which causes moisture to spread out as it hits the lens instead of dissipating. Once several moisture droplets start to congregate, fogging occurs. Hydrophobic coatings are also detergent-based and may start to lose their effectiveness through repeated washing.

Do you know what to look for in a safety eyewear lens coating demo?

The safety market is saturated with products all claiming to have similar performance values, however, some safety eyewear companies are resorting to “magic tricks” to fool an audience about its products anti-fog capabilities. The “trick” is that like-for-like lens coatings are not being used for the demonstration thereby, casting doubt on the capability and performance of uvex products. Watch this video to ensure you know what to look out for when buying anti-fog safety eyewear.

Unrivalled Protection

uvex’s flow-coating application technology provides an anti-fog coating that is consistent, clear, uniquely bonded to the lens, and up to 4x thicker than dip-coated alternatives. Exclusive to uvex, this flow-coating process also allows different supravision coating configurations to be applied to either side of the lens, giving the wearer more specific, quality protection where they need it most.

By contrast, most competitive safety eyewear is dip coated. This uneven, thinner coating is the result of a technique where identical coatings are applied on both sides of the lens, which sacrifices the quality of one protective property over the other (scratch-resistance vs. fog protection mixed together, diluting both).

Proper Cleaning and Care

In order to ensure long-lasting performance from your uvex safety eyewear, ensure you clean your lenses in the correct way to minimise damage to the lens coatings. First, lightly blow off any loose dirt or debris and then run your eyewear under cool water – uvex lenses are engineered to allow excess dirt to wash off easily, without sticking.

Next, spray the cleaning solution found in the uvex eyewear lens cleaning station directly onto the lens, and then use the lens-safe tissue to wipe clean. If you’re not immediately putting the safety eyewear back on, store them in a protective pouch; never put unprotected eyewear in your pocket.
