Acetate glasses are more durable and flexible than plastic glasses. Acetates are ideal for eyeglass frames because they are more pressure-resistant than other frame materials. This means they can be bent further and are designed with strength and longevity in mind.
Acetate is very comfortable and lightweight for wearers on the go. At ANRRI EYEWEAR we offer a wide selection of acetate glasses and frames at the best prices. Their versatile designs and rich colors make them ideal for vision correction and facial accessories. Time to come, you should have at least a pair in your wardrobe.
Acetate is a nylon-based plastic, so acetate frames are similar in many ways to plastic frames. However, the material is great for eyeglass frames because it's lightweight, durable, and hypoallergenic (so it won't irritate your skin). Acetate glasses come in almost any color imaginable, from bright shades to classic tortoiseshell. Plus, acetate is arguably a very strong, hypoallergenic and flexible type of plastic that you can wear comfortably all day long.
Acetate is stronger, flexible, and more durable than regular plastic frames, which is why we use them for eyeglasses frames. They are more resistant to pressure placed upon the frames and can bend further before breaking. Acetate is a higher quality plastic than injected molded frames.
Acetate is actually a relatively lightweight material that is mostly used to make eyeglass frames. Metal frames are likely to be slightly heavier than acetate ones, while plastic shades are usually as lightweight as acetate.
