Press Release:
HONEYWELL LAUNCHES UVEX LIVEWIRE SEALED SAFETY EYEWEAR WITH UVEX HYDROSHIELD ANTI-FOG LENS COATING FOR UNBEATABLE PERFORMANCE AND PROTECTION

2015-06-09

DALLAS- June 9, 2015 - Today at Safety 2015, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) launched Uvex Livewire sealed safety eyewear with Uvex HydroShield anti-fog lens coating for a style that delivers unbeatable performance and protection. The new Livewire offering is ideally suited for workers who require the added protection of a goggle and demand lasting, fog-free visibility to remain safe and productive on the job. Uvex Livewire is on display and Uvex HydroShield demonstrations are ongoing at the Safety 2015 Expo in Honeywell booth #1813.

            "Uvex Livewire has become a fast favorite among customers in high-particulate and other extreme environments," said Dave Iannelli, senior product manager for Honeywell Safety Products.  "Precision-engineered to deliver a comfortable, gap-free fit, it effectively seals out debris, wind, sun and heat."

            By pairing Livewire with Uvex HydroShield, workers avoid lens fogging for more than 60 times longer than competitive anti-fog coated products*, providing a winning combination of complete eye protection and the best anti-fog coating on the market.   

Fogged lenses are the leading challenge workers face with safety eyewear, and they fog even faster in goggles and sealed eyewear due to restricted air flow. Fogging affects productivity and worker safety: when workers remove eyewear to wipe lenses clean, they are vulnerable to injury from the various hazards surrounding them. Permanently bonded to the lens, HydroShield will not wear off after extended wear or repeated cleanings. It also delivers two times greater scratch resistance than competitive anti-fog coated products for extended lens life. Click here for a video illustrating the coating's revolutionary performance. 

Uvex Livewire with Uvex HydroShield features a solid black frame and is available in Clear or Espresso lens tints. It can be worn with easy-to-exchange temples or headband to ensure a secure, sealed fit across applications. The style is 100% dielectric for safe wear in electrified environments and delivers 99.99% UV protection. It meets both ANSI Z87.1-2010 and CSA Z94.3 safety standards.

Uvex Livewire sealed eyewear with HydroShield is available now through major safety equipment distributors in the Americas. Contact the Honeywell Safety Products customer care department at 800-430-5490 for more information about Uvex Livewire and where it may be purchased. Uvex brand safety eyewear is offered for sale by Honeywell Safety Products exclusively in the Americas.

*Comparative lens life test performed using a Bayer Abrasion Test method and may vary between environment and application.
