Certottica permanent anti-fog project

The permanent anti-fog treatment of lenses by using ecofriendly technologies is the main objective of the “Permanent Anti-fog Performance” (PAP) project headed by Certottica.

Anti-fog treatment is important for people who wear optical and sun lenses every day, but it is even more so for anyone who works in dangerous situations, such as firefighters, or who practices sports like skiing or motorcycling.

The aim of the project is to achieve permanent anti-fog treatment on optical and sun lenses, protective screens and goggles by applying cold plasma technology for which Certottica is a leading-edge center thanks to two plants and a team of specialized researchers.

Before moving on to the industrialization stage, the chemistry of anti-fog surfaces must be studied in depth, with several stages of experiments on formulas that will make the treatment permanent.
