One common problem that everyone has faced sometime in their lives is fogging up of the mirror surface either because of rain or a simple hot shower! Fogging up happens when there is a difference in the mirror’s surface and its surroundings. Because of this, the atmospheric humidity tends to condense on the mirror’s surface. Now in order to clear up this fog, people make use of anti-fogging technology. There are various agents and means to do this.
Origin of Anti-fogging Technology
During the Gemini Project of NASA, an astronaut found his helmet visor fogged up in the space-walk tests. To overcome this, Anti-fogging chemicals were used for the first time on his visor. From there on, this technology has continued to evolve seamlessly.
Agents of Anti-fogging technology
Some of the agents used in it are:
- Mirror Defoggers
- Hydrophilic coatings
- Surfactants that minimize water surface tension
Although there are various agents of Anti-fogging, we will discuss Mirror Defoggers in detail.
How do Anti-fog bathroom mirrors work
A very thin Anti-fog film is installed behind the bathroom mirror. When switched on, they give out a slight warmth across the surface which removes the fog and essentially keeps the mirror from fogging up further.
The fascinating thing to know here is that mirror defoggers work on a very low amount of electricity. Hence they are power-saving and eco-friendly. You can operate the Fogless mirrors with a switch or in some cases even a sensor.
Eco-friendly and touch-friendly at the same time – talk about being cool!
Application of Mirror Defoggers
People who like to shave or groom after a hot shower will probably find it very tedious to clean their foggy mirrors every morning and especially on the days they are running late. As a solution to this problem, Mirror Defoggers or Anti-fog mirrors are installed in Bathrooms or Vanity. With just a click, you can carry on with your daily chores without worrying about the hassle of cleaning them.
