FSI Coating Technologies has announced the launch of Visgard® Premium. With the addition of Visgard Premium, three Visgard product line extensions now offer a greater range of durability levels, product applications, and price points.

These anti-fog coatings transform the durability and appearance of:
  • Protective eyewear
  • Face masks
  • Shields
  • Interior headlamps and gauges for automotive and transit applications

Developing High Performance Anti-fog Coatings

“Focused on developing high performance anti-fog coatings, we added another new level of coating performance to our existing optically clear and highly durable Visgard anti-fog product suite of permanent, water washable anti-fog coatings. The Visgard suite leverages best-in-breed anti-fog coating uniquely designed for the next generation of industry specific and cost-effective applications,” said Richard Chang, Group Vice President for SDC Technologies, Inc. and FSI Coating Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SDC. “In contrast to our other Visgard products, Visgard Premium combines primer-free adhesion to polycarbonate substrates with single layer mirror coating capability, while maintaining multi-use anti-fog properties. Visgard Premium is suitable for mid-market applications such as safety and disposable eyewear, while our existing Visgard Premium Plus and Visgard Elite products are designed to offer maximum anti-fog protection under extreme use conditions, such as in highly durable military, sports eyewear, and emergency response applications”, added Dr. Sapna Blackburn, Vice President of Technology for SDC Technologies.
