Anti-fog films belong to a category of “specialty tints” that are used for very specific purposes. In the case of an anti fog film, the name speaks for itself: it is applied to glass and mirror surfaces in order to give them clarity even if they are exposed to temperature changes or humidity.
That’s why the anti fog coating is often used in commercial kitchens, but it has a vast residential use as well: apply it onto your bathroom mirrors and screens and see the difference!
Here at Tinting Chicago we only offer our clients the top-quality anti fog films that are present in today’s market. Give us a call at 773-455-0467 or 312-212-0493 for a free estimate or book your application appointment.
The technology behind anti fog performance
The surface of this film is covered with special antifogging agents that prevent condensation — even during the water immersion! Let’s see what Wikipedia says about this: “Anti-fog treatments were first developed by NASA during Project Gemini, and are now often used on a 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”.
How cool is that? And now you can apply anti fog coating to the surfaces in your home!
