We strongly recommend that all of our lenses our supplied with an anti-reflection coating. This gives a much better appearance to the lenses and improved optical clarity by removing surface reflections. The one downside to these coatings however, is that they can show up grease and dirt more easily on the lenses. Therefore we are delighted to introduce Rodenstock's new X-tra Clean Finish.
The extremely smooth surface of the new X-tra Clean Finish means that dirt can hardly stick on the lens. However, if it does happen, the dirt can be removed without streaks and residue. Lenses with the X-tra Clean Finish are so smooth that dirt has no chance.
The finish consists of functional molecular chains, which area responsible for the water- and oil-repellent properties. These molecular chains are not flexible with conventional finishes. X-tra Clean Finish from Rodenstock consists of extraordinarily flexible molecular chains, which make the lenses so smooth.
On behalf of Rodenstock, an independent institute conducted personal interviews with 100 spectacles wearers in Germany. The result is that 100% of those surveyed confirmed that lenses with X-tra Clean Finish could be cleaned absolutely clean and without streaks. In addition, 93% of the testers were able to remove fingerprints on the lenses without any streaks with the new finish. 93% of the spectacles wearers were able to notice easier cleaning due to the smoothness of the lenses.
