Frame Materials

Frame Materials

At present, glasses have become a must-have item for many people. Due to their functional classification, glasses can be divided into myopia glasses, reading glasses, sunglasses, etc., and there are even some wonderful plain glasses. Just like different eyeglass frame shapes allow you to reinvent your style, there are a variety of eyeglass frame materials that can help you expand your look. When shopping for the perfect pair of glasses, you're looking for the right color, shape, and fit, but you should also look at the frame material from which the glasses are made. The difference between good glasses and average glasses is the right frame material, which provides quality, support, and style. Without further ado, here at ANRRI EYEWEAR, we have a quick guide to different eyeglass frame materials for you to know.

Plastic material


When it comes to quality design frames, the most commonly used material is plank/acetate. High-quality plastic made from renewable wood pulp and natural cotton fibers. Over time, the sheet metal frame retains its impeccable color brightness. Because its tint is embedded directly in the material rather than sprayed onto the surface, any loss of color is effectively prevented. It has the characteristics of being lightweight, strong, and flexible. And the quality is higher than plastic eyeglass frames. Available in varying degrees of transparency and rich patterns, finishes are easily achievable from high gloss to a sophisticated matte look.

TR90 is a thermoplastic produced through Swiss technology that has a rubber-like texture that is also incredibly durable, resilient, and lightweight. Glasses made from TR90 are very comfortable due to their flexible qualities. Because they're flexible, they bend to pressure and comfortably mold to the contours of your face. This flexibility also makes the TR90 less prone to damage. Since the material is flexible, they are less likely to break or bend on impact. If you're an active adult or a kid who likes to do a lot every day, the TR90 glasses are for you. Glasses made from TR90 allow you to wear them comfortably all day long without feeling sick. As the name suggests, the TR90 flexes under pressure and comfortably molds to the contours of your face. It's also hypoallergenic, making it ideal for wearers with allergies to metal glasses.

One of the most important aspects of maintaining an eyeglass frame is its durability. No matter how careful you are with eyeglass frames, they will inevitably break or fall. Most eyeglasses are made of metal and plastic materials that are commonly used to make eyeglass frames. But these materials are easily deformed if used for a long time. And titanium! It is one of the most abundant elements on Earth and is found in many minerals. People are starting to choose titanium over metal and plastic in eyeglasses because the frames can be bent and twisted and then returned to their original shape. Those who choose titanium frames need not be particularly careful, as it is highly impact-resistant. Compared with ordinary metal materials, titanium is the lightest material and one of the most popular materials. These titanium frames can be easily worn for comfortable relaxation while gaming, jogging, or running. Since these frames require no maintenance, it is undoubtedly one of the best materials, especially for eyeglass frames. Last but not least, titanium is also hypoallergenic, perfect for eyeglass users with sensitive skin.

Stainless steel

Do you like stylish, no-nonsense glasses without any frills? Are you someone who doesn't like drama and just cares about getting the job done? We recommend for you: stainless steel glasses. It is an alloy steel containing chromium and nickel, which has a double advantage. Chromium makes it resistant to stains and rust; while nickel adds to its strength. Plus, the stainless steel frame can be said to be an alternative to titanium. The stainless steel frame is lightweight, has low toxicity, and has high strength. Many stainless steel frames are also nickel-free, making them less allergenic. Stainless steel is readily available at reasonable prices. It is an alloy of steel and chromium, which has excellent corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and heat resistance, and also has good flexibility and deformation resistance.

Aluminum glasses

Fun fact: Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth's crust. Pure aluminum is soft enough to sculpt! However, when mixed with small amounts of alloys, it can provide strength at half the weight of steel. If you like wearing glasses that are lightweight and don't hurt your nose, this frame material should be your go-to style. Like stainless steel frames, aluminum has excellent corrosion resistance.
