For more than 50 years, stainless steel alloys have also been used to make Frames for glasses. The processing of steels into semi-finished products such as bow profiles, nose bars and eye rims is more complex, as the material is more brittle and harder than conventional alloys. Soldering, welding and electroplating also require more know-how. The advantage lies in the dimensions of the components, which can be smaller because stainless steel is very strong. In addition, stainless steel is very sustainable because it can be completely returned to the value cycle.
Eyeglass frames made of stainless steel are often lighter than frames made of classic materials, as they are generally made thinner.
