First used by the military worldwide, Defog It anti fog is proven in the toughest workplace environments where heat, cold, humidity and exertion cause fogged safety eyewear. Defog It is available as a liquid or reusable cloths and is safe and effective on safety glasses, goggles and faceshields.
Lab tests confirm the Defog It’s high performance. In one test, a lens treated with Defog It was held over constant hot steam for 60 minutes without fog forming.
