Hydro+ has all the benefits of our Infinity XT coating but with a truly remarkable resistance to smudging and smearing. By effectively filling in the gaps that exist naturally between the molecules on the top layer of an AR coating, a completely smooth, flawless surface is created that does not collect dirt or dust particles.
The extra two layers of Hydro+ include an oleophobic layer to repel oils and a super-hydrophobic layer to repel water. In extensive tests, a lens with Hydro+ coating has proved to be up to eight times easier to clean.
