Granite strength & durability

Our MR-GraniTe treatment is a hard-wearing, scratch resistant coating that is designed to protect the lens from the potential damage caused by everyday life. It’s important that your lenses meet your customer’s needs, and much of this comes down to longevity and quality. Applying our MR-GraniTe coating increases the useful lifespan of the lens without compromising on the vision clarity offered.

Our scratch resistant coating ensures durability and increased longevity. A high quality thermally cured dip hardcoat offers the best scratch resistance and provides for the most durable ingredient for an AR coating application.

Hard coatings are today a standard within an AR coating. Therefore lacquers are used which form an almost ideal buffer between the lens surface and the more brittle AR coating

Hard-wearing & designed for the perfect tint finish

If you want to combine durability and scratch resistance with your tinting requirements, MR-ResisTINT is the perfect solution for you. With our unique MR-GraniTe formula as the base, combined with the perfect lens tint ability, this treatment truly offers the best overall finish. We are sure that the wearer will see things the same way.

To get the best finish possible we have developed MR-ResisTINT to ensure that the dye is held well by the lens and offers maximum permeation. We use a tintable primer so that any color applied is held by both the hardcoat and the primer, giving color fast results when a tint is applied.

Reduced glare & reflection for clear vision

Our MR-ClarityAR, high quality coating formula offers durability and the highest levels of protection against the effects of reflective glare and harmful UV rays. The treatment is designed to integrate perfectly with the lens itself. Our AR coating is designed for optimum performance and crystal clear vision in all conditions and is known for its stability and high quality.

Non-stick, anti-reflection technology for clear vision

MR-ClarityPlus+, our hydrophobic anti-reflective coating, offers the benefits of MR-Clarity, our AR coating, and water repellence. The MR-ClarityPlus+ treatment binds together the molecules of the lens leaving no space for water to penetrate and create permanent water damage. Water stained, smudges, dirt and fingerprints are more prominent as they hamper the anti-reflection properties of the coat. With MR-ClarityPlus+ this is no longer the case.

MR-ClarityPlus+ means clean, clear and long lasting lenses, no matter what environment the wearer encounters. This treatment takes our amazing AR coating to an even higher level with the addition of water repellence.

High-level protection from harmful blue light

The MR-Blu-CoaT formula is designed with the daily protection of eyes in mind, and more specifically, the protection from the blue-violet light we are all exposed to on a daily basis. The hard wearing coating formula that we use takes into account our increased daily exposure to blue light, both natural and artificial, as well as the wear, tear and damage that lenses can be exposed to on a daily basis.

 

The MR-Blu-CoaT treatment neutralises potentially harmful blue light, preventing the eye strain and fatigue that results from prolonged exposure. The coating prolongs the lifespan of the lens and offers scratch resistance, water repellence and clear vision due to its strong hydrophobic and olephobic properties.

Practical, protective & fashionable mirror coating

Our MR-ReflecTive treatment is primarily used on non-prescription lenses and fashion lenses. We offer a number of colors and effects, from full mirror to a light tinting, depending on your requirements. An AR coating on the back surface of the lens is strongly recommended and with MR-TintIT and our MR-ReflecTive coating you can combine both fashion and function.

Mirrors are available in several basic styles. Solid mirrors are a classic sunwear look, especially in silver, gold and blue. Gradient mirrors being the densest at the top of the lens, and then fading to nothing at the middle of the lens, provides maximum shading of overhead sunlight, while allowing more light to pass through the middle and lower parts of the lens. This is beneficial for drivers and cyclists or people who like to read outdoors.

Double-gradient mirrors are also functional. They are dark at the top and the bottom and lighter in the middle. Double-gradient mirror coatings are an excellent choice for snow skiing and other winter activities because they provide excellent protection from both overhead sunlight and light reflecting off snow on the ground.
