Anti-fog Coatings

Uvextreme®
Uvextreme anti-fog coating offers superior performance under the most extreme conditions and will not wear off after repeated cleanings.

Uvextreme® Plus
Uvextreme Plus offers the same anti-fog performance as Uvextreme, but with extended wear. It is permanently bonded to the lens which helps it retain its anti-scratch, anti-static and UV protection properties.


Anti-scratch Coatings

Ultra-dura®
Ultra-dura hardcoat is one of the toughest anti-scratch coatings in the world. It is also permanently bonded to the lens and offers excellent scratch and chemical resistance.

Supra-Dura®
Our new Supra-Dura advanced anti-scratch coating is superior in high particulate environments where lens scratching is a severe problem. It lasts 5x* longer than any other anti-scratch coating on the market today.

Uvex_Dura-streme_IllustrationDura-streme®Dual Anti-fog/Anti-scratch Coating
Dura-streme technology combines the benefits of industry-leading Uvextreme anti-fog and Ultradura anti-scratch coatings onto one lens. While the advanced anti-fog properties of Uvextreme help keep the interior of the lens clear from fogging, the rugged properties of Ultra-dura anti-scratch coating protect the exterior of the lens from scuffs and scratches, adding up to 3x* more life to lenses.
