Dublin, November 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The report “The Global Market for Anti-Fog Coatings and Films 2023-2033” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.coms offer.

Surface fog is a major problem in optical systems, such as the lenses and mirrors in goggles, swimming goggles, camera lenses, binoculars, etc.

This undesirable phenomenon reduces the effectiveness of the light transmittance and thus the optical surface and material efficiency. Anti-fog coatings are also known as non-fog coatings and their use has come into use in eyewear and headgear in recent years.

Fogging due to moisture condensation on transparent substrates is a major challenge in various optical applications that require excellent light transmission properties, such as eyeglasses and vehicle windshields, and can lead to serious hazards such as blurred vision, light scattering, energy consumption and safety risks during the use process of transparent glass and plastics.

These problems limit the use of transparent polymeric materials. Anti-fogging additives are also widely used in food packaging films. Their development has been accelerated by breakthroughs in the use of inorganic materials such as TiO2 or SiO2, polymers with polar functions such as hydroxyl (OH), carboxyl (COOH) and ester groups (COOR), and the structured or porous surfaces.

The use of advanced surface coating technologies can be used to address a wide range of these issues.

Examples include:

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

  • Fingerprints negatively affect the performance of optics.

  • Functional problems due to liquid behavior on surfaces.

  • Pollution and contaminant materials have a negative influence on the optical behaviour.

  • Improved adhesive/tack properties are desired on optical surfaces.

  • Surface is not smooth enough.

  • The wettability of an optical surface is not ideal.

  • Fogging and moisture build-up negatively affect optical performance.

Applications that benefit from anti-fog treatments include:

  • Goggles (e.g. goggles, face shields).

  • Optical instruments (e.g. cameras, microscopes, endoscopic instruments).

  • Externally placed meters and signs.

  • Food packaging.

  • Visors or sports goggles.

  • Displays (e.g. computer screens, mobile device screens).

  • Military helmets.

  • Photovoltaic modules.

  • Car windows and lamp 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 bead and run off the lens.

  • Hydrophilic and superhydrophilic coatings that form a thin layer of water over the lens.
