Carl Zeiss Introduces LotuTec Water-Repellent Coating

Carl Zeiss Logo

Carl Zeiss has announced a new hydrophobic coating that readily sheds off water and oil, to address problems caused by raindrops, dust, smears and fingerprints on sports optics lenses such as binoculars and spotting scopes.

The company said LotuTec coating is named after the Lotus leaf effect. It is a super-smooth coating for anti-reflective coated glass surfaces which repels both water and oil, causing both to form spherical beads which run or wipe off with ease; a little shake removes most water and a gentle wipe leaves the lenses spotless.

The product is currently available on the new Victory T* FL 8×56 and 10×56 binoculars and will be introduced on the full line of Victory Binoculars and Victory Riflescopes.
