In this White Paper experts from Essilor R&D introduce the new breakthrough in anti-reflective coatings called Crizal® Sapphire 360°™ and present the science behind this innovation, as well as the evidence-based benefits for wearers.
Crizal® Sapphire™ 360° coating, featuring the 360° Multi-angular technology™ , is designed to reduce reflections on both the front and back of the lens regardless of the light’s incidence angle. It takes into account wearers’ needs and real-life conditions where reflections on lenses don’t just come from the front but from either side or even from behind the wearer.
R&D experts have drawn on new calculation tools and a new nanolayer to create highly complex lenses to enhance antireflective efficiency without compromising on UV protection. The 360° Multi-angular technology™ makes it the most sophisticated product in the Essilor Crizal® range, providing it with best-in-class transparency for optimal clarity and aesthetics.
In today’s society driven by social media, self-image is extremely important and people control their image more than ever before. Understandably, everyone wants to be seen in their best light. Crizal® Sapphire™ 360° coating meets this need spot on.
