Why choose Titanium sunglasses?
There are several types of material used for mountain sunglasses frames, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, but one in particular stands out: titanium.
Titanium is an alloy invented in 1791 by William Gregor and is mainly used in the aerospace industry. In recent years, it has become increasingly popular in other fields, notably for the manufacture of spectacle frames, because of its many advantages.
Titanium sunglasses have the advantage of excellent ductility, meaning the frame can bend considerably without breaking, even at extreme temperatures. This characteristic makes it ideal for mountain eyewear, which is often subjected to extreme conditions and severe stress.
In addition to its resistance to vibration and the rigours of mountain adventures, titanium sunglasses frames degrade very little, making them very durable. Titanium is also resistant to sweat, sometimes acidic, and all other body fluids, without rusting. As a result, titanium sunglasses retain their lustre and appearance over time and during mountain outings.
Titanium is lighter than aluminium, representing only 60% of its density, which has a direct impact on the comfort of wearers in the mountains. This weight difference is particularly noticeable when goggles are worn for long hours, as they tend to be 'forgotten' and, above all, do not leave marks on the nose.
Another advantage of titanium is that it is hypoallergenic, which means it does not cause allergic reactions. This is why this material is also used for prosthesis.
Lightweight, durable, ductile and strong. All these reasons led us to use titanium for our Moiry sunglasses.
We want our customers to be able to enjoy their most precious moments in the mountains to the fullest, without having to worry about the strength of their mountain sunglasses.
