Content - Coating solutions for spectacle frames made of plastic and metal

Whether plastic or metal - we provide flexibility.

As fashion accessories, spectacles are subject to short-lived trends. The demand for ever-more sophisticated colours and effects together with the widening range of demanding materials used for frames, such as polyamide or ultra-elastic metal alloys, call for innovative coating solutions that can be implemented rapidly and are guaranteed to have lasting success in the marketplace.

The wealth of corrective spectacles, sunglasses and protective goggles for sport and work is truly vast and the demands placed on lacquer technology are equally complex. For this reason, all our sector-specific products and processes for enhancing the surface quality of spectacle frames are resistant to perspiration and cosmetics, are abrasion-proof and enjoy UV and ultrasonic resistance. In close collaboration with leading manufacturers of substrates and raw materials, as well as with top designers, we work with you to develop effective solutions that enable you to meet your varied requirements for unusual surface properties and uncompromising design to perfection.

Whether plastic frames in polycarbonate, polyamide or ultra-flexible polyurethane, metal spectacles in aluminium and stainless steel or galvanised materials – we focus squarely on your success when we are developing the ideal lacquer system.
