Antifog coating retains effectiveness for 25 eyewear washings

September 18, 2013

3M has added Scotchgard™ antifog coating to its safety eyewear. According to the company, the proprietary coating provides at least 12 times longer-lasting fog resistance than traditional antifog coatings to help increase eyewear performance in rugged, dusty, steamy, and wet work environments.

The coating retains its effectiveness for at least 25 washings with water, the manufacturer states. It also contains an antistatic property to help reduce the amount of dust and dirt that sticks to lenses.
