The instant response of the market to the overwhelming need on the protection products is impressive. In the context of coronavirus it is true Wild West, now. However, the situation is stabilizing. The market will be again more demanding to these products. Especially that they must remain with us for longer. It is worth to ask about optical properties of face shields we wear, for example. To answer the question we should use certified product for this kind of application.

The ability for improvising is most likely the key element in human evolution. It helps our king to survive the unexpected. Ofcourse it is not the only factor, but certainly a very important one. The power of the skill to adjust presents itself perfectly in the context of COVID-19.

However it is, the undertaken measures seem to work. We should stay vigilant. This is why protection measures are so wide. The information posters, video-clips and adds are everywhere. The shops, hospitals and offices are reorganized to control the flow of people.

The improvised at first, protective gear changes as well. It isn’t surprising. Since we now know it will stay with us for longer.

In fact, the face shield can be made from any kind of transparent, stiff film. It will do the job. However, it may not look so simple, if we imagine one must wear it for whole shift. What harm can make a face visor? It may damage the sight for example. Just because something seams to be transparent it doesn’t make it suitable for optical applications!

We must pay attention to such parameters as level of transparency, haze and light diffusion of the film. These properties can confirmed only by proper laboratory test. Also the results of the inquiry must find confirmation in proper certificates.

Than and only than we can be sure that the product will do no harm. This is why we introduce our new PET. The plastic is dedicated for optical applications such as face masks or visors.
