What are Te Rā sunglasses made from?
TR90 frames

Te Rā sunglasses are made from the thermoplastic material TR90 and TPE.

The Swiss technology TR90 is an incredibly durable, flexible and lightweight material. Frames made with TR90 are extremely comfortable and contour your face perfectly giving you that elegant bold touch. TR90 frames are perfect for active adults and kids. There is great colour depth and much less fading with exposure to sunlight.

These frames are ideal for anyone as they can easily bend at any angle making them less likely to break from impact. And if you’re guilty of constantly dropping your glasses, you have nothing to fear with the TR90 frames.

Being extremely lightweight, they are comfortable, easy to wear and you will feel like you aren’t even wearing sunglasses. For those with sensitive skin, our glasses would make a suitable alternative. The material is hypoallergenic and is perfect for customers who can get a skin reaction from other materials.

TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is a material that is sometimes used in the production of sunglasses. TPE is a blend of rubber and plastic, combining the flexibility and elasticity of rubber with the processing ease of plastic.

TPE material used in sunglasses frames provides the following benefits:

- Flexibility and durability: TPE frames can be bent and twisted without breaking, making them more resistant to damage compared to traditional plastic frames.

- Comfort: TPE is often chosen for its soft and comfortable feel. It can provide a more gentle fit on the face compared to other materials.

- Lightweight: TPE frames are generally lightweight, which can enhance the overall comfort of wearing sunglasses for extended periods.

TAC lenses

High-quality sunglasses offer a multi-layered polarised lens made from triacetate Cellulose or TAC for short. TAC polarised lenses are the best way to eliminate glare and UV light. They effectively block more than 99% of harmful UV rays with wavelengths of up to 400 nanometers. They are made up of 7 layers of composite materials which eliminate the dazzling reflection and scattered light so that the object is soft and clear.

These lightweight and highly impact-resistant lenses offer a high degree of stability and protection. They have a scratch-resistant feature which increases the life of the lens. TAC polarised sunglasses are very effective in strong, reflective and stray light.
