Introduction of anti-fog solution
Fogging is a natural phenomenon. Fogging happens when there is a phase change in matter. Here is a common example to help you understand. People with eyeglasses are troubled by the fogging problem in winter. When people enter the house, their glasses are fogging. That’s because of the drastic temperature differences, the vapor turns into liquid on the glass surface.
In short, fogging occurs when there is a significant change of:
- Moisture or humidity.
Anti-fog or anti-fog treatments and agents are chemicals applied in industrial and domestic applications to prevent water condensation.
However, do you know anti-fog treatment is first developed by NASA? As the Project Gemini processed, Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan tested NASA’s first spacesuit and found out during the spacewalk that his helmet visor fogged. That contributes to the development of an anti-fog solution.
After many years’ development, now there are four main anti-fog solutions:
- Anti-fog coating
- Anti-fog film
- Anti-fog plastic sheet
- Anti-fog spray
Every solution has its pros and cons and has been applied in various industries. Anti-fog tech has permeated our daily life and facilitated our life. Undoubtedly, anti-fog solutions are also applied in snorkeling.
Traditional anti-fog solutions for snorkeling
Snorkeling is about an experience and having fun. Explore the underwater world, observe marine life and relax yourselves. The underwater world is peace, beautiful and mysterious. How can you miss it just because you do not have a qualified anti-fog snorkeling mask?
For a long time, the fogging problem of a snorkel mask has troubled people that much. People cannot have a crystal clear underwater sight, which may affect their snorkeling experience or even their safety. So people have figured out some basic solutions to prevent snorkel mask from fogging.
- Commercial anti-fog spray
- Baby shampoo
They play the role of surfactants which can reduce the surface tension to prevent water to condense. Water is difficult to cling to the glass. However, the fog-free snorkel mask cannot sustain. Every time before you go snorkeling, you have to finish the application, or the fogging will ruin your trip. People are wondering if there is a fundamental solution.
Although full face snorkel mask was created to solve the breathing problem, its unique design can solve the fogging problem in some ways. Full face snorkel mask sweeps over the market rapidly. Almost all full face snorkel mask manufactories have announced that they can realize anti-fog full face snorkel masks, but in fact, the performance of preventing full face snorkel mask from fogging is not stable and everlasting.
Normal full face snorkel mask use air-flow ventilation and two separate chambers to realize anti-fog. Two separate chambers are a revolutionary design adopted by full face snorkel mask. The view chamber and the breathing chamber doesn’t affect each other. However, the air-flow ventilation system and the separate chamber design only solve anti-fog in physical methods. Many people have reflected the anti-fog performance of full-face snorkel masks doesn’t work all the time.

Reviews from Professionals
“This is easily the best snorkel mask I’ve ever used. I was skeptical at first but there is absolutely no fog. Vision is very clear and as long as you push the mask very firmly onto your face there is no leakage. You can breathe freely through your mouth and nose. This style of mask is not super great for diving however and you should probably take it off for a small 1 minute break after about a half an hour or so. Overall, very highly recommended. -D.T.”
“Great mask. Doesn’t fog and the folding breathing tube is pretty easy to use. I took this mask to the Caribbean side of Panama and loved it.
I’m pleasantly surprised by this mask. I own many full face mask and this one stood up to every other brand that I’ve tried.
I was pretty worried by the way the GoPro mount works but it ended up working out really well. I’m impressed. -SHEFF”

Hydrophilic coating can interact and absorb water in order to eliminate fogging. The hydrophilic anti-fog coating developed since 2011, and it has been the most efficient and reliable anti fog solution. Seabeast AF90 full face snorkel mask adopts the hydrophilic coating with high absorbing capacity, meaning that it can absorb more moisture. The absorbed moisture can be released naturally in the meantime. Unlike a hydrophobic coating, hydrophilic coating is not soap-based, so it won’t wash off. The hydrophilic coating creates a polymer bond, connecting the coating to the polycarbonate materials permanently.
