North Star BlueScope Steel provides hot rolled bands of steel to coil processors, cold roll strip producers, original equipment manufacturers, the steel pipe & tube industry and steel service centers. They asked to field test Defog It antifog as a solution to the everyday fogging of protective eyewear in the high-heat work environment of a steel-making facility.

2/3 of the field test respondents said that fogging was a frequent problem; half
stated that fogging sometimes caused them to remove their safety eyewear; every
employee recognized fogging as a safety issue. The cause? High heat and
humidity were named by all the employee testers, followed by temperature
changes and exertion.

Results: 2/3 reported they could see more clearly, work more safely.
After using Defog It on the job, workers were asked to rate its performance. 2/3
said it helped them see their work more clearly. 50% said Defog It helped them
wear their safety eyewear more – that’s the same percentage that said fogging
caused them to sometimes remove their safety glasses

Over 65% of respondents believe Defog It helped them work more safely. That
same number would recommend the high-performance antifog to a friend.

The promise: It works.
The Clarity Defog It antifog formula is used by the military around the world to
prevent fogged eyewear in vision-critical situations. It’s been rigorously tested for
performance. In one test, a lens treated with Defog It was held over constant hot
steam for 60 minutes without fog forming. Similar products failed in as little as 5
minutes. In another test, lenses coated with Clarity Defog It were moved between
cold and hot environments 100 times without fog forming.

Clarity Defog It antifog is safe and effective on safety glasses, safety goggles,
faceshields and eyeglasses, even high-tech anti-reflective and super-hydrophobic
