In the previous article, we discussed “What are all the different types of glasses?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Are carbon fiber glasses good?”.
Carbon fiber is a new generation of reinforcing fiber, and has the reputation of 'black gold'. The mass is lighter than metal aluminum, but the strength is higher than steel. Moreover, it has the characteristics of corrosion and high strength, which is an important material in national defense, military industry, and civilian use. Carbon fiber glasses are a very good glasses material that is particularly emerging in the market, and titanium frames have always been particularly popular in the market. Two kinds of glasses have their own advantages. Are carbon fiber glasses good? Which are better, carbon fiber glasses or titanium glasses?
Advantages of carbon fiber glasses frames
The main reason for choosing carbon fiber to replace traditional plastic and metal materials is that carbon fiber has the characteristics of lightweight and high tensile strength. Spectacle frames made of carbon fiber materials are significantly lighter than traditional metal spectacle frames. In addition, such spectacle frames are impact resistant, has high hardness, wear resistance, are not easy to deform, and will not fade. Also, the carbon fiber material has good biocompatibility and is often used in medical equipment, so it will not cause allergic reactions, and it is not easy to corrode and rust. The lightweight carbon fiber frame is easy to carry, and it is not easy to deform the bridge of the nose when worn on the bridge of the nose, relieves the burden on the nose and ears, is not easy to slip, and is comfortable to wear.(https://www.koalaeye.com/collections/eyeglasses)
Disadvantages of carbon fiber glasses frames
One disadvantage of carbon fiber materials is that they are more brittle, so spectacle frames will break after being bent to a certain extent, which is not as tough as metal. Carbon fiber materials are more complex to process, so carbon fiber spectacle frames are better than conventional spectacle frames. Also, it is much more expensive. If there are too cheap ones, you need to carefully consider its authenticity. In addition, the carbon fiber spectacle frames are difficult to repair once damaged.
At present, carbon fiber material has been used by many high-end eyewear brands, which shows that it has a very good effect on the improvement of product quality. The popularization of carbon fiber as an excellent material in daily necessities has a positive effect on the improvement of people's quality of life.
Are carbon fiber glasses better or titanium?
In terms of weight, the titanium frame is very light. The specific gravity of the pure titanium frame is about 4.5g/cm3, and the specific gravity of the titanium alloy frame is about 8.9g/cm3. The pure titanium frame is lighter than the titanium alloy frame. However, carbon fiber glasses are lighter in weight. The carbon fiber glasses launched by LOHO are only 7.87g, which is very light to wear.
In terms of hardness, titanium has a high hardness, about twice that of stainless steel, twice that of iron, and six times that of aluminum. Carbon fiber is lighter than aluminum, harder than steel, and its strength is ten times that of iron.
In other respects, the titanium frame has the advantages of corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, high stability, good elasticity, good toughness, and resistance to deformation. The carbon fiber frame has the advantages of corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, good elasticity, good flexibility, and abrasion resistance.
It can be seen from the above comparison that carbon fiber glasses have the general advantages of titanium frames. In terms of weight, carbon fiber glasses are much lighter than ordinary pure titanium glasses.
