DuraVision® Premium Coatings
See better and look better
Lens coatings transform plastic lenses into everyday masterpieces. They harden plastic lenses, making them dirt-resistant and easier to clean. But that's not the end of the story. Good anti-reflective coatings are equally essential. Try the all-in-one DuraVision Premium Coatings from ZEISS. They come in two quality categories: Platinum and Silver. DuraVision Platinum contains all the performance characteristics of DuraVision Silver and even goes one better with its hard coating! A special production process makes this possible.

DuraVision Premium: for who?
This is how we make DuraVision® Platinum so durable
Ions do the job!
The coating of every DuraVision Platinum lens consists of nine ultra-thin layers: first, the base glass receives a hard coating, followed by various anti-reflective coatings including an antistatic coating and finally by the CleanCoat layer. This topmost layer seals the lens and creates a perfectly smooth surface. Dirt and moisture bead off to enable a perfect, easy-to-clean lens.

However, the extreme hardness of DuraVision® Platinum can only be achieved by a special coating technology. The lenses are repeatedly bombarded by special ions during the production process. These transfer their kinetic energy to the lens and optimally compact the layers into one single coating. This ensures optimum adherence of the individual layers to each other. The result is a lens surface that is three times harder than the previous generation of ZEISS plastic lenses.* It is this very smooth and hard surface that makes the lenses more durable, dirt-resistant and easy to clean.
