Atomic Aquatics introduces "ARC lens technology" in the Ultra-Clear mask line
All Atomic Aquatics masks come standard with our special Ultra-Clear optical
quality glass with exceptional clarity, light transmission, and no color
distortion. ARC technology coatings further improve this already incredible lens
material by reducing reflections and by allowing more light in the diving mask.
We introduced Ultra-Clear to the diving industry and have never used low cost,
poor quality green float glass like the other masks on the market.
What is ARC lens technology?
Anti-Reflective Coatings or "ARC" is a multi-layer metal oxide coating process
applied to both sides of the Ultra-Clear lenses. This allows more light to enter
the mask by reducing light reflections off the inside and outside surface of the
lens. The metal oxide coating is only a few microns thick.
Why do you need ARC lens technology lenses?
Between 4-12% of light can be reflected back or "lost" by the standard "green
float glass" mask lenses used by our competition. ARC technology lenses are
especially important for SCUBA divers underwater, where available light is
quickly absorbed by the surrounding water.
What will ARC technology lenses do for you?
- Clearer, crisper vision. You will see more clearly underwater and objects in the distance will become more defined and acute.
- Increased contrast and clarity.
- Reduces eyestrain, glare, and prevents ghost images on the viewing area of the lens.
- An absolute must for night diving, limited visibility conditions, and underwater photographers.
