Celanese Offers Clarity to Glass Industry with Clarifoil High-Performance Anti-fog Film

Anti-fog film product demonstrations daily at Glasstec 2014 - Celanese orporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company, today at Glasstec 2014 in Dusseldorf, Germany, announced the launch of its Clarifoil® Anti-fog Film for use in architectural, commercial and high-end optical applications.   “The world-renowned Glasstec trade fair is an ideal location to launch our Clarifoil® Anti-fog Film which offers exceptional clarity to glass and mirrored surfaces in both extreme cold and high-humidity environments,” said Lou Purvis, vice president and general manager of the cellulose derivatives business of Celanese. “Attendees will quickly realize that this high performance film offers excellent fog resistance, superior clarity and durability.”Clarifoil Anti-fog Film can be utilized in a wide array of end uses including: architectural applications such as greenhouses, pool enclosures and skylights; commercial applications such as freezer doors and hotel bathroom mirrors; and optical applications such as visors and goggles.

How it works

Clarifoil Anti-fog Film is a solid layer of cellulose diacetate film paired with a remarkably clear adhesive. Resistance to fogging is inherent in the cellulose diacetate material whereby moisture can pass into the film, where it can then dissipate; the result is the longer-lasting anti-fog effect. Most other anti-fog films offer only a coated surface, and once it washes, wears or scratches away, the anti-fog properties are gone.

Clarifoil film also offers resistance to most standard window cleaners and will not be degraded by ultraviolet rays. In addition, the film is easy to apply with the correct tools.

Seeing is believing

Celanese invites attendees to see the fog resistance properties of this high performance film during demonstrations on a mirror and on a freezer door. “Once people view the overall clarity of the film and its fog-resistance properties first hand, the product nearly sells itself,” said Purvis.

Glasstec is held October 21-24 in Dusseldorf, Germany, and Celanese will have technical, sales and marketing representatives in Hall 13 at booth 13B71-5 demonstrating Clarifoil Anti-fog Film and answering questions from interested attendees. Learn more at www.celanese.com/antifog
