DURACLEAR + DURALITE
This innovative material overflows with adaptive technology, performance and protection. Special coatings, layered Trivex lenses set Breakline apart from other brands.
Comfort Coating AR - Anti-Reflective coating avoids the reflections of sunlight on the back and front side of the lens increasing your visual acuity.
Resistance: a new generation of oleophobic and anti-smudge coatings harden the lens and improve its intrinsic qualities, without altering its color.
- A super smooth, resistant and extremely durable coating put on the front and the back side of the lens. It is used in addition to the anti-reflective treatment. Perfectly suited for all activities demanding precision.
Durability: Anti-smudge is a treatment which protects both sides of the lens. It helps to prevent scratches equally on the front and back lens. Neither smudges, fingerprints, dust, nor water adhere to the surface. They simply go away with a gentle wipe.
Improves the scratch resistance and scores a 6 on the Bayer Scratch test, average is 3.
Improves the resistance to fog. The technical explanation here is the coating creates a hydrophyllic surface which repels and detracts the water droplets from the surface of the lens. Just swipe away.
A more complex mirror system which multicolors increase protection from glare and reduce daily eye fatigue, normally associated with a lens of less quality material. Refines tones with reflections creating a rich and finished appearance.
Let's see that in chart form shall we?

Anti-Smudge & Water Repellent
Anti-smudge is a treatment which protects both sides of lenses. It prevents scratches equally on the front and back of the lens. Neither smudges, finger prints, dust nor water adhere to the surface -- they simply go away.
Anti-fog is useful when temperature changes, for outdoor activities, for leisure or when practicing a sport such as hunting,
winter sports, golfing or camping.
The high impact lens with ballistic resistance is extremely durable and pass Z87.1 testing. Perfectly suitable for demanding jobs and any outdoor activity.
How are our lenses so clear? Well, we’ll tell ya.
Our trivex lenses are cast molded, while other brands use plastic poly lenses which are injection molded.
The cast molding process takes time and care. Summary: Trivex “liquid lens” is poured into molds and set in heated ovens then gently cooled to perfection | Polycarbonate Injection molding is quick and reckless. Solid polycarbonate pellets are heated, the resulting liquid is injected into molds and quickly cooled.
The slower cast molding process results in sharper optics than injection molding.
There’s no tradeoffs in terms of quality, strength, safety, comfort or appearance, period. Like the old adage says, good things come to those who wait!
DuraLite Frame Construction
