The Face Shield is entirely created in Japan and is designed to reduce reflections and fog build on the surface. A special resin material on the shield’s surface has been proven to deactivate 99.675 % of the new COVID-19. Sharp’s Face Shield has Moth-eye technology, that offers ultra-low reflection, anti-fogging, excellent transparency, and durability. The Face Shield will help ensure safety and keep it practical for sustained use.
