Abstract:

The work described herein was performed by the Combat Capabilities Development Center CCDC Soldier Center using Core S and T funds during the period October 2017 August 2020 in support of the Product Manager Soldier Protective Equipment PM-SPE goal of improving durability of antifogging capabilities of protective eyewear. This effort focused on the fabrication and application of textured anti-fog coatings to polycarbonate and nylon substrates which can withstand abrasion and maintain anti-fogging capabilities. The end result was a coating which was substrate-independent in application method and fog performance for 10 seconds when exposed to a humid environment. The coatings did not affect ballistic fragmentation protection of the underlying substrates.
