What is a titanium glasses frame?
Titanium is a metal that has long been used in aerospace, and even in cutting-edge defense because it is so strong and lightweight. Chemically stable, the material is widely used in artificial joints. One thing to emphasize, the titanium welding process is very demanding. The production cost of titanium and titanium alloy glasses is high, and the process has special high requirements in cutting, stamping, welding, and electroplating (for example, welding must be completed in a vacuum), so the price is relatively expensive.
Features of pure titanium glasses frame
Due to the lightweight (ordinary nickel-based alloy frame weight 48%-60%), high strength, corrosion resistance, surface easy coloring, beautiful and durable features of spectacle frame made of pure titanium, they have been loved by most consumers. But the elastic modulus of pure titanium is higher (about 120GPa). The temples of the frames made from them are not elastic enough. After wearing the glasses for a period of time, the temples of the glasses need to be adjusted due to the relaxation of the stress. The processing plasticity of titanium metal is worse than that of other metal materials, so the processing technology of its wire is difficult. The surface quality is difficult to control, and the technical content is high. The surface quality of pure titanium wire produced by a few domestic manufacturers is poor.
Features of Beta titanium glasses frame
Beta titanium has better strength, fatigue resistance, and environmental corrosion resistance than pure titanium and other titanium alloys. The shape plasticity is very good, which can be made into wire and sheet, more lightweight. They are used to make glasses and can get more shapes and styles. It's the material for a new generation of glasses. Customers with higher requirements for style and weight can completely choose beta-titanium glasses. Because β titanium processing technology is higher than pure titanium, usually only large factories and brands will produce, and the price is higher than pure titanium glasses.
Other features of high-quality titanium frame glasses
They are clear, with shiny surfaces, no scratches, corrosion, and other problems of the temple. The regular manufacturer prints the article number, size, etc. on the glasses frame. Open and make the temples flat, to see if it is tilted at an angle between the glasses body and temples, and to see that if the frames have the same size if the parts of the frame are symmetrical, etc.
