Di­v­el Coat­ings

What to ask your op­ti­cian

To see clear­ly, your lens­es need to be per­fect­ly clean and in good con­di­tion. This is why you need to clean your eye­wear dai­ly us­ing wa­ter, cleanser and a soft cloth or oth­er spe­cial clean­ing so­lu­tions or dis­in­fec­tants rec­om­mend­ed by your op­ti­cian. Nev­er use your clothes or pa­per tis­sues! Of course, the per­for­mance and dura­bil­i­ty of a lens also de­pends on the coat­ings that are ap­plied by your op­ti­cian of choice. To pick the right coat­ings for your lens­es, you need to let your op­ti­cian know a few things about your lifestyle, be­cause the en­vi­ron­ment and so­cial con­text in which you live can de­ter­mine the ex­act type of coat­ing you need. Which coat­ings are rec­om­mend­ed in or­der to ex­tend the life of a lens? Coat­ings avail­able with Di­v­el Italia in­clude: • HARD • SILKEN SU­PER HY­DROPHO­BIC • CHRO­MA • PER­FOR­MANCE • PER­FOR­MANCE NoUV

Pro­tec­tion and Re­sis­tance.

Let’s start with our base coat­ing, HARD.

With this lens coat­ing, a spe­cial hard­en­ing lay­er is ap­plied to both sides of the lens to lend it greater scratch re­sis­tance and pro­tect it against dai­ly wear and tear.

This type of base coat­ing is suit­ed for any­one who typ­i­cal­ly only wears glass­es in­doors and for just a few hours a day.

Pro­tec­tion, Dura­bil­i­ty, Su­per mul­ti­lay­er anti-re­flec­tion, Anti-smudge.

Our SILKEN Su­per Hy­dropho­bic is an ex­cel­lent stan­dard coat­ing suit­ed to near­ly every lifestyle. It gives your lens­es greater pro­tec­tion against scratch­ing and gen­er­al wear and tear than our HARD coat­ing thanks, above all, to its anti-sta­t­ic lay­er, which pre­vents dust from set­tling on the lens. There is also a hy­dropho­bic lay­er that en­ables wa­ter and grime to slide off the sur­face of the lens, so you won’t risk ru­in­ing your lens­es when try­ing to clean off hard-to-re­move dirt.

Hard coat­ing, Su­per mul­ti­lay­er anti-re­flec­tion, wa­ter-re­pel­lent and an­ti­sta­t­ic coat­ing, blue block.

For all who use com­put­ers or oth­er elec­tron­ics on a dai­ly ba­sis, we rec­om­mend our CHRO­MA coat­ing, which has all the char­ac­ter­is­tics of SILKEN plus pro­tects against blue light, en­sur­ing ex­cel­lent vi­su­al com­fort even un­der ar­ti­fi­cial light.

CHRO­MA is ide­al for every­one who works a lot in front of a com­put­er or ex­pe­ri­ences oth­er sources of eye­strain at work.

Su­per hard, Su­per Durable.

If you need an even more durable lens, your op­ti­cian will sure­ly rec­om­mend our PER­FOR­MANCE coat­ing, which is 12 times more durable than an or­di­nary hard­en­ing treat­ment. PER­FOR­MANCE is ap­plied to lens­es used by peo­ple who en­joy high­ly ac­tive lifestyles and by any­one who needs par­tic­u­lar­ly strong, re­sis­tant eye­wear.

Su­per Hard, Su­per Re­sis­tant, Su­per Pro­tec­tive.

For com­plete pro­tec­tion from the sun along with ex­cel­lent dura­bil­i­ty, we rec­om­mend go­ing with our top-of-the-line PER­FOR­MANCE lens: PER­FOR­MANCE NoUV.

This is the top-of-the-line coat­ing cur­rent­ly avail­able and sur­pass­es lev­els of to­tal UV pro­tec­tion by block­ing all ra­di­a­tion up to 400 nm. An added anti-re­flec­tion treat­ment with an oil and wa­ter-re­pel­lent, scratch-re­sis­tant sur­face pro­tects against UV rays of up to 400 nm.

Of course, to en­sure the dura­bil­i­ty and per­for­mance of this coat­ing, in ad­di­tion to the care and clean­ing men­tioned above, you also should:

  • Avoid leav­ing your glass­es in the car, as sun­light can weak­en the coat­ing;
  • Not use eye­wear re­tain­ers to hang your glass­es around your neck. These are not very safe, and your glass­es can come into con­tact with just about any­thing;
  • Bot leave your glass­es on top of our head. They can fall and get dam­aged or mis­shapen;
  • take off your glass­es be­fore us­ing hair­spray, per­fume or cologne. The al­co­hol con­tent could harm the lens­es and the frames;
  • al­ways store your eye­wear in a hard-shell case.
