SafireM – Ultra-Durable Mirror
SafireM has been specially developed to provide high-quality durable mirrors suitable for all the latest ophthalmic lens materials. The process utilises modern hardcoating techniques together with advanced plasma thin-film deposition of the mirror and top coat, resulting in a mirror coating of such outstanding quality that we offer a guarantee.
* non-standard tints are available In addition, all Full and Graduated Mirrors can have a Safire2 antireflection coating added to the rear surface to minimise reflections. All mirrors have a hydrophobic and oleophobic top coat for easier cleaning and enhanced protection. The top coat chemistry utilised by Siltint is based on accurately controlled vapour deposition. Unlike standard top coats there is no clear interface between the final layer of the coating stack and the top coat materials as the chemicals bond with the final layer of the mirror. This merging
- ensures that the top coat remains on the lens, cannot be easily removed and provides additional protection against daily wear and tear
- assists the creation of an outstanding hydrophobic and oleophobic properties, making the lenses easier to clean due to the rejection of water and grease
Plasma assisted deposition Siltint’s advanced APS gas plasma technology ensures that the coatings are environmentally stable and higher surface damage thresholds can be achieved. Additionally, this technology enables the deposition of coatings onto temperature sensitive substrates such as polycarbonate or high-index plastics.
