An ACETATE RIM frame weighs between 6,0 and 7,3 grams.
The 27 separate pieces of the frames are thougth to be as practical as possible. Materials are chosen for those pieces to be thin and light.
Titanium alloy - thin, light and flexible
Temples and bridges are cut from a high-performance titanium alloy. Its outstanding mechanical properties are made possible by its quasicristal structure awarded 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. It is unique for its excellent joining and forming properties and its extremely high tensile strength.
Bio Acetate from Mazzucchelli, made in Italy
Rims and temple tips are made out of bio acetate from Mazzucchelli. The fabrication process of this acetate manages to avoid a big part of polluting solvents used in traditional processes.
As with Rimless frames, different shapes of pad arms are available, making almost any perfect fit possible for any type of nose.
