At a glance

Have you experienced this too? Annoying fingerprints and dirt can make paintings look unattractive, dim the enjoyment of art and they are extremely difficult to remove.

MIROGARD® DARO – Cleaning the easy way!

SCHOTT now has the answer: MIROGARD® DARO – a durable anti-reflective coating with oleophobic properties and thus the solution to fingerprints and dirt, which can now be wiped away quickly and easily using a damp, soft cloth. 


Excellent properties as usual

Anyone who might think that this type of coating detracts from the enjoyment of art is dead wrong. Like all products from the MIROGARD family, MIROGARD® DARO ensures undistorted viewing pleasure:

This glass reduces reflection to less than 1% and thus allows for  clear viewing of art. At the same time, MIROGARD® DARO is completely neutral in color ((Ra  = 100) and lets the colors of your artwork shine through naturally.

The best possible protection thanks to a combination of properties

Our premium product MIROGARD® Protect Ultra is also available with a DARO coating and then offers not only
  • splinter protection
  • low weight and
  • UV protection

but also the excellent protection that the DARO coating offers against dirt.

These are all characteristics that are of the greatest importance to museums, art galleries, exhibitions and so on.

Technical data

Customized coating with long durability

To make handling and care of AR-coated glasses easier, you need an oleophobic coating that withstands being touched and wiping movements (e.g. during cleaning). MIROGARD® DARO meets this requirement and retains its properties, such as reduced visibility of fingerprints, easy cleaning and comfortable haptics, even when it is exposed to high mechanical and chemical stresses.



High-tech production

SCHOTT puts in enormous technical effort to see to it that art lovers all over the world can see nothing of the glazing at the end: MIROGARD® DARO is dip-coated using the sol-gel method. This coating process takes place under clean room conditions. Titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide layers are sequentially applied with nanometer precision and then burned in at the end. The result is a high-tech anti-reflective picture glass of the highest quality whose surface is extremely stable and easy to keep clean.
