As the name suggests, they are applied to glass and mirror surfaces to prevent fogging due to temperature or humidity changes.

The technology behind the anti-fog films
The anti-fog film is a pretty miraculous solution for spaces with windows prone to fogging. The surface of this film is covered with special anti-fogging agents that prevent condensation — even when emersed in water! According to Wikipedia: “Anti-fog treatments were first developed by NASA during Project Gemini, and are now often used on transparent glass or plastic surfaces used in optical applications, such as the lenses and mirrors found in glasses, goggles, camera lenses, and binoculars. The treatments work by minimizing surface tension, resulting in a non-scattering film of water instead of single droplets”.

- Kitchen windows/decorative walls
- Bathroom mirrors/windows/enclosures/protective screens
