The titanium eyewear is made from a high-quality beta titanium alloy. However, a small percentage consists of other precious metals. In a similar way, genuine gold jewellery is not made from 100% gold because it would be too soft!
The additions to the alloy neither sensitise the wearer, nor trigger any allergies: instead, they help bring the best out of the material. Unfortunately, we can’t provide any more detailed information about the alloy mixture.
Our main suppliers are based in Asia.
Polarised lenses work like a filter to filter out reflections coming off reflective surfaces. Their design enables them to filter light reflected off horizontal surfaces, such as water.
There is no layer stuck onto the outside of the lens. Depending on the model, it can be one of the following methods: Vapour deposition / a layer of sputtering, or dye applied to the base material.
