It appears that everything today is made of titanium. Back in the day really something to have an aluminum bicycle frame. Now you can get yourself a titanium frame. My wedding band is titanium. Plus all that aerospace and airplane stuff is titanium. What else is often titanium, i hear you ask? Eyeglass frames, obviously! Before we drop that road, let's talk more about the metal.

Titanium happens with the ground. In rocks. It really is popular due to a high strength-to-weight ratio (thanks wiki!) To utilize a good example, it might take a pound of steel to carry up king kong, nevertheless it only takes 1/2 one pound of titanium to do exactly the same thing. While heavier than aluminum, pound-for-pound, titanium is twice as strong.

The huge benefits for using titanium in eyeglass frames now seems obvious. This metal will lead to frames which are every bit as strong as steel frames yet are merely half the weight. Titanium makes a lot of sense. Do not let any retailer let you know it'll alter the world, but it will give you a lighter set of glasses equally as strong like a steel pair. Also, the other side of this is when you realize you'll just be wearing a set of glasses an hour or so at a time (e.g., sunglasses or fashion glasses), you might get the best value for your money away from cheaper steel frames.

Your final note is that titanium is usually alloyed, or combined, with other metals including nickel. Some titanium frames are 100% and a few are alloys. Unfortunately, the internet retailers aren't disclosing these details. I'll make contact with a few and post again in a few days. Generally, you want to avoid an alloyed frame if you're allergic to nickel or another metals with which titanium may be alloyed. The explanation behind the alloying process would be that the manufacturing process is simpler as well as the titanium becomes easier to govern.
