How to Use Anti-Fogs for Dive Masks

Pre-clean With Sea Buff

Clean new masks with Sea Buff Mask Pre-Cleaner. This removes the silicone leeched from the mask skirt and other factory residues on the lens. Regular cleaning with Sea Buff eliminates dirt, algae, mold and other contaminants that interfere with anti-fog performance.

Step 1:

Apply a small amount of Sea Buff to inside and outside of lens. Rub aggressively, rinse and repeat.

Step 2:

Buff with a soft, dry cloth until clean, then rinse thoroughly.

Step 3:

After cleaning with Sea Buff, apply Sea Gold, Sea Drops or Anti-Fog Spray to inside of dry lenses.

Step 4:

Rub in anti-fog with fingers.

Step 5:

Rinse in a swimming pool, freshwater or saltwater.

Mask Tip

How Anti-fogs work

Mask fogging results from warm humid air inside the mask meeting a lens surface cooled by water. Warmer air is capable of holding more water vapor (water in gas form) than cooler air. Therefore, when air is cooled, a portion of its water vapor condenses into tiny liquid droplets, or “fog.” GEAR AID anti-fog formulas prevent fogging by creating a thin, invisible film on the lens which creates a “sheeting effect” - eliminating the formation of condensation droplets.
