Speedo Hong Kong Anti-Fog: How They Prevent Steamy Goggles

Foggy goggles and disrupted vision make for a frustrating swim, which is why all Speedo goggles now feature anti-fog coating as standard. But what causes foggy goggles in the first place, and how can you ensure yours stay fog-free for the duration of your swim?

Why do my goggles steam up?

Here’s the science: Goggles fog up because warm, humid air, usually created from your body heat, condenses on the cooler-than-air lenses. However, if your goggles feature an anti-fog coating and still steam up, it could be their age. In some cases, with regular use, goggles can out-live their anti-fog coating, depending on the method used to apply it during manufacture. If you are fogging up and are old or well-used, it might be time to consider investing in a new pair.

How Speedos’ Anti-Goggles Work

Speedo uses two types of anti-fog goggles coatings: anti-fog and anti-fog ultra. These coatings work by making it much harder for condensation to stick to the lenses. On PC lenses (hard lenses that don’t bend at all- often the choice of competitive swimmers- such as those in the IQ Fit range), anti-fog is sprayed on the inside of the lens. CP lenses (slightly flexible, designed for comfort, such as those in the Biofuse range), and infused, rather than coated, with an anti-fog ultra solution during the manufacturing process. AS a result, the anti-fog solution is more durable and will not wear away.

Care For Your Goggles and Preserve Anti-Fog Coatings

In order to maintain your goggles, avoid scratching or rubbing by keeping them safe in a protective pouch, and remember to clean your lenses after every swim. To remove any chlorine or other harmful chemicals, gently wash them with lukewarm water. Leave the goggles to dry and, in the case of PC lenses (anti-fog coating), try to avoid rubbing the lenses or touching them, as this may start to remove the coating.
