Nanofilm coating makes spectacle overseas

Nov. 26, 2003 — Nanofilm, a Valley View, Ohio-based nanocoatings maker, has installed a system for applying ultrathin protective coatings to optical lenses for a U.K.-based optical laboratory, according to a news release.

The Norville Group Ltd. will use Nanofilm’s PermaSeal nanocoating on eyeglass lenses. The coating forms a molecular bond that repels stains, dirt and moisture, as well as offers a stronger, longer-lasting layer of protection, the release said.

Nanofilm said the Norville project is the first of three international installations this year. Another European installation is nearing completion, and a system will be installed in Taiwan by year’s end.
