Nanofilm Promotes Eye Safety for Professionals in Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery

Published on February 27, 2010 at 5:12 AM

Nanofilm, maker of Clarity Defog It anti-fog towelettes and liquid, is committed to promoting eye safety for emergency response and disaster recovery professionals.

“The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health guidelines recommend that, at minimum, emergency workers at a structural collapse site where there is some risk of exposure to dust, chips, and flying particles use safety glasses and a treatment to prevent fogging,” says John Swett, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Nanofilm developed Clarity Defog It anti-fog for safety glasses, goggles and faceshields precisely for use in the vision-critical situations emergency response workers face.”

Clarity Defog It anti-fog is formulated to help keep emergency response workers’ protective eyewear fog-free.Clarity Defog It anti-fog liquid and Clarity Defog It anti-fog towelettes have a formula used by the military around the world to prevent fogged eyewear in vision-critical situations. Just one application can help keep optics fog-free up to all day. Clarity Defog It anti-fog is safe and effective on safety glasses, safety goggles, faceshields and eyeglasses, even high-tech anti-reflective and super-hydrophobic lenses.

The product has been rigorously tested for performance. In one test, a lens treated with Defog It was held over constant hot steam for 60 minutes without fog forming. Similar products failed in as little as 5 minutes. In another test, lenses coated with Clarity Defog It were moved between cold and hot environments 100 times without fog forming. A video demonstrates the performance of Clarity Defog It. In addition, the product has been tested in the field. Comments from firefighters confirm the anti-fog performance for first responders.

Other firefighters have also praised the anti-fog performance of Clarity Defog It.

“I was skeptical at first but this product really works.” -- Donald Sipple

I am a volunteer fireman and every one at the department liked it just as much as I did. So, yes. I would recommend it to everyone.” -- Gene Brazier

Nanofilm will be developing eye safety case histories and safety programs in the coming months to help organizations and workers increase eye safety. Additional resources on Eye Safety for Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery, including anti-fog protection recommendations, can be found on the Centers for Disease Control’s NIOSH Safety and Health topics.

Nanofilm, founded in 1985, is a global optical leader in lens care and coatings. Millions of people around the world use Nanofilm products, including Clarity Clean It™, Clarity Defog It™ and other lens care products, as well as nanotechnology-enabled coatings.
