The Most Advanced Transitional Technology Available

High Light/ Dark Contrast

VIEW DETAILS

The highest light/dark transmission contrast values on the market to date.

Quick Switching Time

VIEW DETAILS

The fastest transition time of any polymer electrochromic material to date: light to dark in less than three seconds, and dark to light in less than one.

High Durability and Cyclability

VIEW DETAILS

Lenses have been tested to more than 1,200,000 light/dark switches without degradation.

Short recharging time, Long use time.

VIEW DETAILS

FADES® sunglasses can last for days at a time on one charge.

Excellent Optical Memory

VIEW DETAILS

Lenses retain the color they were in when they were turned off.

Non Polarized, UV Blocking

VIEW DETAILS

Allows drivers to read automobile displays.

CONTRAST

Typically 70 to 7% transmission for “light” electrochromic lenses.

Typically 50 to 1% transmission for “dark” electrochromic lenses.

These Light/Dark percent transmission contrast values are the highest reported to date. Note that these transmission values are measured against air reference, unlike other products which report against substrate reference to enhance their numbers.

SWITCHING TIMES

Dark to light transition takes less than two seconds. Light to dark transition takes less than three seconds. This is the fastest switching time of any polymer electrochromic material to date.

PERFECT OPTICAL MEMORY

Lenses retain the color they were in when they were turned off.

NATURALLY UV-BLOCKING

Blocks UV-A and UV-B light.

NON-POLARIZED

Allows drivers to read automatic displays.

SCRATCH-RESISTANT AND SHATTERPROOF

With scratch-resistant coating on outer, shatterproof layer.

LONG-TERM STABILITY (CYCLABILITY)

Lenses have been tested to more than 1,200,000 light/dark switches without degradation.

SHELF LIFE INDEFINITE

These lenses are unaffected by ambient oxygen and moisture.

HAZE

Haze is less than 2% in both dark and light states.

ENVIRONMENTAL DURABILITY

Tested to extreme temperatures (-30 to +65° C), extreme humidity, and salt spray. Safety versions conform to ANSI Z87.1, US Military GL-PD 10-12.
