Sport Glasses’ Frame Made of Trogamid

Excellent Transparency Properties

In a cooperation with Jaan LIH Optical Evonik Industries, Essen, Germany, presents a sport glasses’ frame manufactured with Trogamid, a kind of high performance plastic with excellent transparency properties. Trogamid is considered to be the ideal replacement for already established materials by means of its improved wearing experience and enduring style.

Characterized with its lightweight construction, Trogamid CX9704 makes the sport glasses’ frame lighter than other materials. Therefore, the wearing experience will be significantly improved. Sunglasses are exposed to a lot – sand, dust, creams or sweat are a potential danger for the appearance and functionality of sunglasses. Low temperature and tough weather condition also influence the frame’s enduring performance. Thanks to the excellent chemical resistance, Trogamid-based sport glasses frame is free from sun cream’s damage and assured with longer product cycle. In addition, Trogamid’s remarkable weathering resistance under extreme condition also offers the glasses more ductility but strong and enduring performance even under the extreme weather.

Successful Cooperation

The success of this innovative application is built on the cooperation between Evonik and Jaan LIH Optical Co.,Ltd. As a pioneer in the lens and eyewear industry in Taiwan, Jaan LIH is specialized for manufacturing sports eyewear, sunglasses, high quality lenses and personal protective equipments. Evonik supplies the Trogamid material and provides the technical expertise to support Jaan LIH in developing such application while Jaan LIH, as a strategic partner, has made efforts to create better sport glasses wearing experience for the sports fans.
