3M harnesses 30 years of advanced coating expertise to improve eyewear

ST. PAUL, Minn. — 3M takes safety eyewear to the next level by adding Scotchgard™ Anti-Fog Coating. The proprietary coating provides at least 12 times longer lasting fog resistance than traditional anti-fog coatings to help increase eyewear performance in rugged, dusty, steamy and wet work environments. Scotchgard anti-fog coating retains its effectiveness for at least 25 washings with water, allowing workers to wear the lens longer, which may result in lower cost.

“This effective coating also contains an anti-static property to reduce the amount of dust and dirt that sticks to lenses and hinders vision – a problem workers face in challenging work environments,” said Deb Walker, product marketing, 3M, Personal Safety Division. “Less dirt accumulating on lenses means workers spend less time cleaning and re-cleaning their eyewear.”

Scotchgard anti-fog coating is available in four styles of 3M safety eyewear: Maxim™ Spectacles, Maxim Plus™ Dust Goggles, Lexa™ Dust Gogglegear™ Safety Goggles (med. & lg.) and Lexa™ Splash Gogglegear™  Safety Goggles (med. & lg.). These glasses are ideal for workers engaged in extreme environments, like underground mines, plastics and metal processing factories, fabrication shops, and chemical processing plants.

Depending on the eyewear model selected, an assortment of features, such as removable foam gaskets for added protection against small dust particles, adjustable elastic straps and liquid splash protection, are also available. All styles meet the requirements of CSA Z94.3-2007 and ANSI Z87.1-2010.
