Anti-fog coatings are hydrophilic, enabling water to spread uniformly on the surface rather than form dispersed droplets. The formation of fog on transparent substrates presents a major challenge in several optical applications that require excellent light transmission characteristics. Applications that benefit from anti-fog treatments include spectacle lenses, visors or sports goggles, military helmets, car windshields, etc.
