LotuTec®: Your basic ZEISS coating
The standard ZEISS lens coating offers you a package comprising:
- basic hard coating
- basic anti-reflective coating
- Clean-Coat and anti-static coating
Imagine you are wearing a beautifully soft woolen sweater. Unfortunately, the fluff keeps sticking to your lenses. In your job, you often have to spend time in dusty rooms; afterwards, your lenses look like they have been in a desert storm. It starts to rain and you have no umbrella at hand. With the raindrops on your lenses, you can see next to nothing. All these are examples of situations which reveal the true performance of lens coatings.
Clean-Coat and anti-static coatings which are featured on all LotuTec® and DuraVision® Platinum by ZEISS make the lenses anti-static and water-repellent. A coating is available for spectacle lenses that feature much the same lotus effect as the finish used on cars or other smooth surfaces, although a different technology is used. In lenses with a LotuTec® coating, the lens surface is smoothed to such an extent by the coating that dirt particles or droplets of water simply bead off it. The lenses are therefore easier to clean and require less frequent cleaning. Even greasy fingerprints can be effortlessly removed from the lens.
