the most advanced technological solution in the field of vision protection since the development of cr-39 and polycarbonate over 40 years ago there have been few advances and innovations in high impact-resistant optical polymer development impactxtm belongs to a family of patented polyurethane optical polymers transparent and unbreakable originally developed for the military to provide superior protection and performance this material was born in the usa in the early 1990 s when the u.s government contracted simula technologies to develop a new bullet-proof transparent and light-weight material capable of providing superior protection reliability and longer lasting performance than polycarbonate this material is also used in the windows in post sept 11 cockpit doors being installed on airplanes and apache helicopter windshields panels it is today available for rudy project technically cool eyewear under a unique and unparalleled lens program impactxtm impactxtm represents today the most advanced technological solution in the field of vision protection thanks to their transparency and superior optical quality our lenses ensure sharp vision and unbeatable comfort they are made by casting a process which ensures lower internal stress higher optical homogeneity and mechanical stability compared to traditional polycarbonate lenses impactxtm lens technology offers breakthrough semi-rigid molecular properties formulated exclusively for rudy project after years of laboratory research and field tests with professional athletes impactxtm has been perfected with cutting edge light management technology by combining photochromic particles and advanced polarized technology in the mass incorporating thus superior impact resistance with enhanced visual acuity for virtually any climatic condition simulated example from common glare conditions with and without impactxtm polarized photochromic impactxtm cr 39 glass lightweight impactxtm is 16 lighter than cr-39 and 10 lighter than polycarbonate guaranteed unbreakable for life while the impactxtm lenses are virtually unbreakable they may not be designed to be safety lenses and should not be considered a permanent shield against eye injury superior optics impactxtm lenses have lower refraction index internal stress and chromatic dispersion abbe number than polycarbonate resulting in lower surface reflection and rainbow effect higher definition and sharper images photochromic and polarized photochromic lenses impactxtm photochromic lenses provide unique climatic management technology getting dark from low to high light transmission within few seconds impactxtm polarized photochromic enhance contrast and depth perception while providing unparalleled eye protection impactxtm molecular semi-rigid properties for enhanced safety 10
