Solar Busters Anti-fog can be applied to any relatively flat glass surface to
prevent fogging due to differences in humidity and air temperature.
The technology behind Solar Busters Anti-fog films has advanced rapidly over the last ten years. While the concept initiated as a solution for refrigerator doors and display cases, today’s cutting edge technology allows for a broad spectrum of applications.
This is the next generation of Solar Busters Anti-Fog; technologically advanced and more affordable than ever.
Previously anti-fog could only be accomplished effectively through use of a thick 10 mil film, the new product is only 4 mil (0.1mm) thick for improved lamination. It is no longer a polycarbonate substrate, Anti-fog is PET. A new adhesive eliminates tiger striping caused by temperature changes and leaves no residue on the glass when removed. It is crystal clear, allowing for 100% visibility at all times.
Fogging occurs when tiny droplets of water form on a surface and obscure visibility. Anti-fog is hydrophobic, so it attracts the water, and sheets it out invisibly on the coated surface resulting in a clear, fog-free surface.
Anti-fog offers long-term performance as well as scratch resistance, impact resistance and beautiful optical clarity. Not to mention chemical resistance, print ability and anti-static properties.
“Price Chopper is aggressively pursuing many avenues to lighten the environmental impact of our stores, and the anti-fog film project is an important component of this effort,” Smith said. “Constant Clear film not only enables us to cut our energy usage, but delivers improved anti-fog performance compared to door heaters. SABIC Innovative Plastics has developed a winning product that can make a big contribution to the green building movement.”
“We verified the anti-sweat heater amperage dropped by about 50 percent for the doors using Lexan film – from 5.2 amps to 2.4 for a four door frozen food glass door case, when the glass door portion is disconnected,” Perry reported. “But that is just one aspect of the energy savings. We also expect a reduction of between 10 and 30 percent in energy usage for our compressors, since they no longer have to work so hard to remove the added heat from the cases.”
We embarked on a pro gramme of fitting Lexan Anti-Fog Film to the inside of our full height and half height frozen food cabinets in 2007 after trialling the product in one of our stores in Dublin.
