Luxar Anti-Reflective Laminated Glass

Luxar uses a multi layer optical thin film coating. The individual layers are metal oxides which are extremely hard and durable, and therefore do not corrode. The top layer is a quartz-like protective layer, which allows the glass to be easily handled and cleaned.
