LEYBOLD’S KING CLEAN REDUCES LENS LOSS. King Clean Hydrophobic Top Coat, the new coating from Leybold, offers an edger-friendly coating and maintains all the benefits of a premium hydrophobic topcoat. The new coating reduces lens loss due to slippage and offers high abrasion resistance, according to the company. The contact angle against Hexadecane is approximately 3° below the company’s super hydrophobic topcoat, allowing for edging pads to stick to the topcoat.
