In the previous article, we discussed “Do rimless titanium frame glasses look good?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Do titanium glasses frames have elasticity?”.
Which are better, elastic or inelastic frames?
The more elastic the frame, the better, because only good elasticity can be naturally worn on the face, not sliding. It is comfortable. On the contrary, when you wear it, the temples are open. Because without elasticity, they can't go back to their original state. When you put it on, it creates a feeling of slipping and sagging. We often see that some people repeatedly with hand glasses. This is this problem. In order to pursue good elasticity, high elastic materials such as titanium and stainless steel are widely used in the production of spectacle frames.
Why does shape memory alloy have "memory" ability?
It starts with its microstructure. When a metal is solid, its atoms are always arranged in a regular way, forming a "lattice". Under different conditions, such as temperature, metal may have a different structure, in which case it is said to be in a different "phase". The change from one phase to another is called a phase transition. The properties of a metal change during a phase transition. The temperature at which a metal transforms is called the transition temperature. The difference between a shape memory alloy and other metals is that the phase transformation process in a shape memory alloy is reversible under certain conditions.
Can titanium temples be bended?
Using titanium alloy as the main material, the strength of the spectacle frame becomes larger and the density is smaller. Strong for the frame can be a good guarantee of the structure of the frame, and small density can effectively reduce the weight of the frame, so as to reduce the pressure on the ears and nose of the frame. The toughness of titanium alloy is very good, which can effectively avoid the breaking, bending deformation of the spectacle frame because of an accident.
It is recommended not to bend without authorization. There are many special tools for adjusting glasses. Bending by hand is easy to cause fracture because the force is concentrated at one point. You can take your glasses to a nearby optical shop and have them adjust them. Many big optical shops do this for free.
