February 24, 2010 – Valley View, Ohio – Nanofilm, maker of Clarity Defog It anti-fog towelettes and liquid, is committed to helping reduce the 2000 daily eye injuries that occur in U.S. workplaces by promoting the wearing of protective eyewear. “Our experience suggests one of the reasons workers may not be wearing protective eyewear is that it fogs up, hindering work,” says John Swett, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With Clarity Defog It anti-fog, we think we can make a difference.”
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, each day about 2000 U.S. workers have a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment. A Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of workers who suffered eye injuries found that nearly three out of five were not wearing eye protection at the time of the accident.
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 users confirm the anti-fog performance.
- “I work in a paper mill where steam is everywhere. I used the Clarity Defog It Dry Towelettes on my safety glasses and it was awesome.”
- “As a MOV/AOV technician that works at nuclear power plants all over the country, I would have to say they work great. We are provided with anti fog spray and wipes at all sites. The Clarity Defog It product worked better for me than did the anti fog product provided for us.”
- “I always had trouble keeping the inside of my safety goggles free of fog, especially if I was wearing a disposable dust mask. The Clarity Defog It Towelettes have finally given me a solution.”
Nanofilm will be developing eye safety case histories and safety programs in the coming months to help companies and workers increase eye safety. Additional resources on worksite eye protection, including anti-fog protection recommendations, can be found in the Centers for Disease Control.
