Frame Materials

At present, glasses have become a essential thing for many people. Due to its functional classification, glasses can be divided into myopia glasses, reading glasses, sunglasses, etc., and even some wonderful flat glasses. The choice of frames is endless, some are to match the wearer's personal style, and some are to reflect personal preferences. The material of the frame also has its own advantages. Commonly used frame materials are divided into the following categories. Let's find out!

Plastic material

Plate/Acetate

The most commonly used material when it comes to quality design framework is definitely plate. A high-quality plastic made of renewable wood pulp and natural cotton fibers. Over time, the sheet frame can still maintain its impeccable color brightness, because its hue is embedded in the material instead of sprayed on the material, which also prevents any color from falling off. By mixing acetate solutions of different colors, beautiful color combinations can be created.

nylon

This kind of frame material is mainly used for slightly cheaper sunglasses. Nylon is strong, light and elastic, but over time, it becomes slightly fragile. For this reason, it was largely replaced by more durable nylon blends-polyamides, copolyamides and alcohol-soluble amides.

TR90 nylon

TR90 is a thermoplastic material produced through Swiss technology, which is incredibly durable, elastic and light in weight. Glasses made with TR90 are very comfortable because of their flexible quality. Since they are flexible, they can bend pressure and contour your face comfortably. This flexibility also makes TR90 glass resistant to damage. Because the materials are flexible, they are unlikely to break or bend due to impact. If you feel guilty because you often drop your glasses, don't be afraid! Subject to TR90 frames! Finally, and most notably, the TR90 glasses are super lightweight! Even the most daring style will not feel bulky when using TR90.

Metal

Titanium

One of the most important aspects of maintaining a spectacle frame is its durability. No matter how carefully you use your spectacle frames, they are bound to break or fall off. Most glasses are made of metal and plastic materials, which are commonly used in the manufacture of spectacle frames. But if used for a long time, these materials are easily deformed. People began to choose titanium materials instead of metal and plastic in glasses, because these frames can be bent and twisted, and then restored to their original form. The quality of these frames is durable and reliable for rough use also. Those who choose titanium alloy frames do not have to operate them carefully, because they are impact-resistant. Compared with ordinary metals, titanium is one of the lightest and most popular materials in the manufacture of spectacle frames. These titanium alloy frames can be easily worn and are comfortable and relaxing when playing games, jogging or running. Since these frames do not require maintenance, it is undoubtedly one of the best materials, especially for spectacle frames.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel frames and surgical stainless steel are alternatives to titanium. Stainless steel frames are light in weight, low in toxicity and strength. Many stainless steel frames are also nickel-free and therefore hypoallergenic. Stainless steel is easily available at a reasonable price. It is an alloy of steel and chromium, with excellent corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and heat resistance. Good flexibility and resistance to deformation.

Silver

Sterling silver or 925 sterling silver is not often used as the main frame material because it does not make the frame very wear-resistant or comfortable. Sometimes, silver is used as a trace element in metal alloy frames, and often provides gem-like decorations on plastic or metal frames.
