Solarcheck Antifog Film
The anti-fog treatment is a patented polymer coating which prevents or reduces fogging under climate class 3 environmental temperature-humidity conditions, even after repeated cleanings.
The Solarcheck® ANTIFOG Film treatment is extremely hydrophilic which causes condensation to spread as a clear layer, rather than form droplets which appear as fog.
Although the Solarcheck®ANTIFOG Film coating absorbs moisture, the coating does not dissolve in water, so it will not smudge when wet. Solarcheck® ANTIFOG Film is not adversely affected by commercial glass cleaners and detergents. It will not discolor from exposure to sunlight or heat.
Conditions with high humidity and extreme cold will not cause frosting.
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA):
Solarcheck® ANTIFOG Film uses an optically clear adhesive recommended for use with pressure roll laminating machinery or by professional installers familiar with the handling of adhesive films. The adhesive bonds immediately to glass and plastics. Peel strength increases slightly after 5 to 10 days. The adhesive bond strength will be reduced after extended immersion in water, but bond will re- strengthen on drying. The adhesive used is a self-cross linking acrylic polymer that cures at moderate temperatures. The adhesive was specifically designed for low temperature bonding applications. This particular adhesive remains tacky and bondable in freezer unit temperature conditions (-20°F/-28°C). Additionally, the adhesive has been chosen as it contains no surface additives which could whiten or haze in the presence of moisture during wet application.
Key Performance Properties:
- Stays Clear for prolonged periods in a Climate Class 3 (25°C; 60% RH) Environment
- Excellent Scratch Resistance
- Applied Dry or Wet
- Absorbs Moisture, Does Not Dissolve in Water
