This 72mm Filter uses Clear Glass Ceramic that offers a Vickers hardness number of 700HV. This higher level of hardness helps prevent scratches and chips, which can lead to breakage of the filter.

Thinner and lighter overall, thanks to advanced new material

Since Clear Glass Ceramic is extremely strong, the SIGMA WR CERAMIC PROTECTOR is up to 50 percent thinner and weighs up to 30 percent less than previous SIGMA filters while offering a higher level of strength.

High transmittance

SIGMA's Clear Glass Ceramic offers very high transmittance, making it ideal for use as optical glass.

SIGMA offers world's first
Clear Glass Ceramic protective lens filters

Give your valued lenses the care they deserve with the true protector.

Interchangeable lenses are the most important element of photographic expression, and to the photographer they are a valuable personal asset. To help photographers continue to use for many years the lens systems in which they have invested their time, knowledge, and budgets, SIGMA has developed original lens filters that meet the company's high standards of excellence. In developing its new protective lens filter, SIGMA has leveraged an unprecedented cooperative relationship with a glass manufacturer, resulting in a completely new type of glass called Clear Glass Ceramic. Featuring this advanced material, the SIGMA WR CERAMIC PROTECTOR is a highly reliable filter with outstanding protective capability.

Highly shock-resistant Clear Glass Ceramic
& Water-Repellent Coating

Clear Glass Ceramic is made with a special heat treatment that precipitates microcrystals of a mineral called spinel evenly throughout, giving the entire filter consistent strength and is the ideal material for protective filters. Clear Glass Ceramic is also resistant to cracking due to small scratches or chips. Since the risk of shattering and producing fragments is reduced, it also offers an enhanced level of safety. The WR coating reflects only 0.24 percent of visible light, thereby minimizing flare and ghosting. Its ability to repel both water and oil is also excellent: water drops bounce right off, and fingerprints are easily removed with a quick wipe. This coating also offers high lubricating ability, giving it more than ten times the scratch-preventing capability of SIGMA's current Super Multi-Layer Coating.
