Waterproof and Oleophobic Coating | Maui Jim Technology
From the coatings applied, Maui Jim lenses are Waterproof. This means that snow and water shed from the product. Oleophobic coatings make the product repel grease and makes smudges and fingerprints wipe away easier. This is true for the front and back of the lens. Therefore the wearer can use the product in a range of conditions and not worry about damage. This lens technology is very useful . Some less technologically advanced lenses are prone to damage due to not having an oleophobic coating. So, if the lens comes into contact with grease, such as when sunbathing, the lens is spoiled unless treated with a chemical cleaner. This is where an Maui Jim lens prospers due to the Oleophic coating. If the lens comes into contact with grease, it can be easily wiped away damage free.
This technology provides great confidence to the user to wear Maui Jim in a range of situations.
