“Our Beta Titanium 153 material is only 0.6 mm thick. It’s a complex material to work with due to its strength and high flexibility. Manufacturing Paper Thin Titanium requires a great deal of laser technology as well as high precision bending equipment to turn a two-dimensional laser-cut shape into a paper-thin titanium frame. The TR 90 Ultra 2.1 mm thick material, used for the eye-wire rims, is first injected into a sheet and then cut with precision drills to carve a perfect groove.”
Paper Thin Titanium
In this line, many of the frames feature full-rim Titanium TR 90 Polyamide. Paper-Thin Titanium combines with a full-ring TR 90 Polyamide rim, which allows for easy V-groove application and adds a pop of color. Other styles feature the Semi-Rim Titanium TR 90 Polyamide. The Semi-Rim Titanium’s TR 90 Polyamide eyebrow and super-thin, invisible eye wire combines the innovative design of the Paper-Thin’s Beta Titanium 153 with colorful, rimless style.
