ABC of Polaroid technology
UltraSight lenses in Thermofusion technology
The UltraSight polarized lens is exclusively used in Polaroid polarized sunglasses. This new technology combines breakthrough developments in eco-materials with Polaroid’s proprietary Thermofusion technology. The outcome is world’s best lenses. Patented by Polaroid, the lenses are safe and secure and made out of Polycarbonate with the green credentials of triacetate.
UltraSight technology, used specially for Polaroid, is not an ordinary one. Made of nine functional elements, each and every lens layer, out of the 9 layers, has a different role to play. The core element of the lens construction is the polarizing light filter in the center. UV light absorbers are bonded to both sides of the filter. These block all harmful UVA, UVB and UVC light rays. Shock-absorbing layers are then fused to both sides of the UV absorbers, making the lens light, flexible and impact-resistant. A scratch-resistant layer on both the outer surfaces completes the lens structure.
