“Fogging’s not only the leading challenge eye protection users face, it’s also a significant hazard that employers can’t afford to overlook,” said Wanda Sanchez-Miller, senior product marketing manager for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “By outfitting workers in one of the many popular Uvex styles now available with HydroShield, employers reduce the hassle and risks of fogging for their workforce – while supporting productivity and their bottom line.” 

Uvex HydroShield effectively eliminates fog 60 times longer and resists scratching two times longer* than any other Uvex coated product – even in the hottest, wettest, most demanding conditions. Its performance significantly exceeds EN166, the most stringent anti-fog standard in the world. The unrivaled dual-action coating is permanently bonded to the lens to withstand extended wear and repeated washings without wearing off.

All HydroShield anti-fog coated products meet ANSI Z87.1-2015 and are certified to the requirements of the CSA Z94.3 standards, except Hypershock. Genesis, Genesis XC and Protégé also meet the military ballistic impact resistance requirements for eyewear (MIL-PRF-31013, CLAUSE 3.5.1.1). All Uvex lenses offer 99.9% ultraviolet protection.
