DUBLIN, Nov. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — “Global Anti-Fog Coatings and Films Market 2023-2033” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com Show.

Fogging on surfaces is a major problem in optical systems, such as lenses and mirrors in eyeglasses, swimming goggles, camera lenses, binoculars, etc.

This undesirable phenomenon effectively reduces the light transmittance and thus the optical surface and material efficiency. Anti-fog coatings are also known as anti-fog coatings and their use in eyewear and headgear has grown in the past few years.

Fogging by moisture condensation on transparent substrates is a major challenge in many optical applications that require excellent light transmission properties, such as eyeglasses and car windshields, and can lead to serious risks including blurred vision, light scattering, energy consumption and safety hazards during the use process. Clear glass and plastic.

These problems limit the uses of transparent polymeric materials. Anti-fogging additives are widely used in food packaging films. Their development has accelerated though breakthroughs in the use of inorganic materials such as TiO2, or SiO2, polymers containing polar functionalities such as hydroxyl (OH), carboxylate (COOH), ester groups (COOR), and textured or porous surfaces.

Advanced surface coating techniques can be used to address a wide range of these problems.

Examples include:

  • Cleaning optical surfaces is time consuming, expensive, or impossible.

  • Fingerprints negatively affect the performance of the optics.

  • Functional problems due to fluid behavior on surfaces.

  • Pollutants and dirt negatively affect visual behaviour.

  • Improved adhesive/bonding properties on optical surfaces are required.

  • The surface is not lubricant enough.

  • Moisture of the optical surface is not ideal.

  • Fog and moisture build-up will negatively affect optical performance.

Applications that benefit from anti-fog treatments include:

  • Eyewear (eg, safety goggles, face shields).

  • Optical instruments (such as cameras, microscopes, and endoscopic instruments).

  • Scales and signs located externally.

  • Food packaging.

  • Sports masks or goggles.

  • Display screens (eg, computer screens, mobile device displays).

  • military helmets.

  • Photovoltaic units.

  • Car windshields and headlight housings.

There are two main types of anti-fog coatings: Combinations of both have also been developed

  • Hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings that repel water, causing it to bubble and seep out of the lens.

  • Hydrophilic and super hydrophilic coatings that form a thin film of water over the lens.
