Titanium Frame Type
There are two types of titanium frames - pure titanium and alloy frames. Pure titanium is about 99% pure, and titanium alloys, also known as "memory titanium" or "bendable titanium," are a mixture of titanium and other metals. Titanium alloy frames are slightly heavier than pure titanium frames, but can be more durable and Flexible.
Known for its bendable properties, memory titanium can return to its original shape, making it a great option for those who want comfortable and lightweight glasses. In fact, titanium glasses are so flexible that they can bend and easily return to their original shape when broken.
Lightweight and flexible
Due to the superior strength of titanium, anti-oxidation and flexibility, Titanium is widely used in the medical industry. Titanium frames can be made thinner which makes them very lightweight. In fact, titanium frames are typically less than half weight of stainless steel frames. This makes them a great option for people who prefer light frames.
People also like the flexibility of the titanium frame compared to plastic or other metals. In fact, titanium glasses are so flexible that they can bend without breaking and return to their original shape. Specifically, titanium alloy metal produces some of the most durable frames in the world.
In addition to being durable and flexible, titanium frames have some other benefits:
They are hypoallergenic and can be used by people with sensitive skin and Titanium is nickel-free, making it ideal for people with nickel allergies.They allow for more color, texture and pattern options than stainless steel frames.
