  • Need a solid solution to safety glasses fogging up

    My company does refits, repair, and maintenance of industrial boilers at paper mills, and electric generation stations.  The inside of the boilers, even when shut-down are high temp, high humidity environments, and to make matters worse, our work generates an incredible amount of flying particles, ash, dust, and debris.  The largest single first aid issue is removing foreign objects from eyes.  We have mandated the use of spoggles for anyone working in these areas, but they fog up after a short period of time.  The workers remove their glasses, tear out the foam around the glasses, or otherwise alter them to the point their eyes are no longer protected.  I've tried many different brands of glasses and anti-fog solutions, but we still have the problem.  Any help from the community would be greatly appreciated.

    anieto,

    Two solutions that have worked in the past. A very thin layer of vaseline or dishwashing detergent. Let it dry.

    You will to buy best quality safety glasses which can helps in this problem and you can change all glasses after some times. You need to wash your glasses in every three hours to keep clean. Use liquid to wash your glasses but it must be specific for only safety glasses.

    Have you ever seen the stainless steel Mesh glasses?   They are a very small fine mesh, that can not fog up, but so small they are Z87 classified and still protect your eyes from foreign matter.    There are a couple of kinds made.  The type I got was from overseas, a bit more than I'd like to pay for them, but were very nice change from all the anti-fog glasses that still fog'd up.
