Overview

SunsenSors by Mitsui Chemicals

Photochromic Lenses are clear lenses that darken outdoors when exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) rays. In technical terms, photochromic lenses have the capacity to change their absorption characteristics in response to radiation wavelengths, which is achieved by photochromic dye that undergoes a reversible chemical reaction when exposed to UV. SunSensors™ is patented in-mass technology for plastic photochromic lenses to mix the photochromic dye in the lens monomer, and is fully compatible with most anti-reflective (AR) and hard-coating (HC) treatments.
