SunSensors™ - An in-mass photochromic technology and brand

SunSensors™ is a patented and branded in-mass technology to produce photochromic lenses. This technology is compatible with premium coating treatments, and is capable of being produced in contemporary lens designs.

There are few branded photochromic technologies in the market today, however SunSensors™ has both a proud history as well as brand recognition. Most recently, Mitsui Chemicals Inc. has reinvigorated the SunSensors™ brand with the MR™ Series and Ultra Dye Dispersing Technology.
