Why uses PC material for safety eyewear?
There are different material that can be uses as safety lenses.
The most common and good performance material is Polycarbonate (PC). PC material offer great anti impact quality, clear color and clarity meet CE EN166 optical quality performance.
There is a material called PETG, almost exclusively used on visor in the US market. But it does not meet CE optical performance. Parkson does not make any spectacles/goggle/visor using PETG material.
What is UV light? Does your spectacle provide UV protection?
Ultra violation radiation is divided into UVA (320~400nm), UVB (290-320nm) and UVC (100~290nm).
UVC are completely block by our ozone layer.
UVA and UVB can cross the ozone layer that can cause burn to our skin and eyes with extended exposure. Just like the use of sunscreen to prevent burn on skin, the use of safety spectacles with UV protection are important to prevent burn to the eyes. Parkson Safety offer safety spectacles with UV380 treatment that can block 97% of harmful UV Rays. UV400 treatment are available to block 99.9% of harmful UV rays.
