Frames come in a variety of materials. Two of the broadly categorised materials are Metals & Plastics.
Most Metallic frames are made of materials such as Stainless steel, Titanium, & Monel. All metallic frames are prone to corrosion depending on the weather conditions and usage. Metallic frames can be made in all kinds of colours and are very stylish. Titanium frames have high Corrosion resistance, are very light in weight, strong and are more popular in rimless frames. However these frames cannot be mended once broken.
Plastic frames are mostly made of materials such as SPX, ZYL, Acetate, Carbon, Nylon & Polycarbonate. These frames are very bold on the face and are good for people who handle frames roughly. They are generally sturdier and do not corrode.
