Silhouette IQ-POL 2010
maker Silhouette offers us polarised sun protection lenses
with its IQ POL 2010 – the new 12 layer sun protection
Based on the
fact that the most intelligent sun protection for the eyes
should offer polarised sun protection lenses, which are
considered to be the sun protection technology of the future,
Silhouette’s research and development experts have
grappled intensely with this issue and produced the most
advanced polarisation technology in the world, the 12-layer
technology – referred to by Silhouette as IQ-POL.
aside the obvious benefits of sun protection, the
IQ POL 2010 is pretty stylish too. They are very comfortable
and the remarkable thing about this pair is not so
much the many benefits that you gain from the polarised
sun protection lenses but the weightless nature in
which it is presented. One can easily be fooled in
thinking that its lightness does not make it durable
but on the contrary, the lightness of the glasses
is one of its strengthsWith a weight of only 1.8 grams
and around 10 grams including lenses, the whole Silhouette
collection is so light that it is suitable for and
recommended for astronauts who can wear them while
exert very little pressure on the sensitive areas of the
face making them very favourable for those who have to wear
them all the time and in demanding conditions.
It also has unique features which include a temple made
from one piece of titanium that does not require screw fitting,
a Twin Lock system developed to attach the lenses whilst
increasing break resistance and a pretty stylish look too.

Facts & Figures for IQ-POL:
o Polarised sun protection lenses are the only way to avoid
disruptive glare, which results from the reflection of light
on horizontal surfaces (asphalt, water etc.).
o Reflected light-waves are horizontally aligned, unable
to pass through the vertically aligned polarisation filter
of a pair of sunglasses, and are thereby efficiently filtered
o IQ-POL sun protection lenses are created from a multitude
of synthetic material layers, which are molecularly fused
together under high pressure and at a high temperature.
Special light filters are built in between the layers of
synthetic material – these guarantee that the reflected
rays of sunshine are filtered out.
o Contrasts are more strongly perceived through polarised
sun protection lenses.
o Polarised sun protection lenses balance light differences,
whereby the eyes have to adjust less frequently to differing
lighting conditions and become tired less quickly.
o Safety can be increased by means of IQ-POL sun protection
lenses, especially in traffic, where a large part of accidents
are still caused by glare.
o Sun protection lenses with polarisation technology have
100% UV protection, and filter out at least 85% of the dangerous
blue light – regardless of the colour of the sun protection
o When the sun protection of polarised sun protection lenses
– pol-filters - is compared with those of sun cosmetics,
one can assume a sun protection factor of 60 to 70 (European
o Polarised sun protection lenses are referred to by experts
as the sunglass technology of the future; ultimately, they
are the only ones that are able to block the dangerous and
unpleasant reflections of the sunlight.
o IQ-POL sun protection lenses by Silhouette are available
in the colours grey, brown and green.
