Crizal Sapphire UV technology

Technological break through in AR coatings.

Crizal Sapphire UV represents the very first coating technology that takes into account the wearer's needs. Now equipped with a new nano layer, it tackles light from all angles.

A new 360° Multi-Angular Technology

Recalculated layers applied to both surfaces of the lens minimise visible light reflections. 

A new 360 multi-angular technology

Introduction of SIO2 nano layer

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Over the last four years we have worked on a new SIO2 layer. This layer ensures the combination of Multi-angular technology, E-SPF 35* UV protection levels and a high Colorimetric Robustness. 

Optimised layers on front and back  surfaces

Research informed us that both lens surfaces contribute to bothersome reflections. By optimising our algorithms to be faster and more powerful, we were able to reduce the thickness of both front and back coating surfaces and introduce the powerful Multi-angular anti-reflective technology.

*The E-SPF® index depends on the lens material itself and the coating. E-SPF® is a global index rating the overall UV protection of a lens. E-SPF® was developed by Essilor International and endorsed by 3rd party experts.
The E-SPF® index relates to lens performance only and excludes direct eye exposure that depends on external factors (wearer’s morphology, frame shape, position of wear).

E-SPF®=35 for Crizal Prevencia and Crizal Forte UV lenses with Lineis 1.74, Stylis 1.67, Ormix 1.6 or Airwear 1.59. E-SPF®=10 for Crizal® UV lenses with Essilor Orma 1.5®.
