Makrolon® - a plastic that makes seeing light work
Safe and light as a feather – corrective lenses of Makrolon® The scene of the accident: the boys' playground. A ball flies across the goalmouth and little Eric jumps high to head for goal. Unfortunately, the ball doesn't hit him on the forehead, but bang on his spectacles. But this time it's not so bad because the lenses in Eric's spectacles are made of Makrolon®, so his eyes are unharmed. Makrolon® high-tech plastic has the enormous advantage that it is virtually unbreakable. Corrective lenses made of it are almost indestructible and – very importantly – don't splinter either.
At the Tufts Medical School in the US State of Massachusetts, scientists fired baseballs at the Makrolon® lenses at a speed of 160 kph – and they resisted. Then the researchers tried it with airgun pellets. Incredible but true: The Makrolon® lenses stood firm again.
For perfect vision
There is no doubt that spectacles – and thus the eyes – are particularly at risk with children, but adults, too, need to know their eyewear is safe at all times. But there are other reasons why the two French companies, BNL Eurolens and Bourgeois, chose Makrolon® for their corrective lenses: the optical quality of the transparent plastic is outstanding and it is noticeably lighter than glass, ensuring optimum wear comfort.
