Buy Aluminum-Magnesium Glasses & Frames Online

Sustainable and durable metal alloys come in a variety of shapes and colors. This makes them an amazing material for eyewear.

What are alloy eyeglasses?

An alloy is a material made from a mixture of metals. The end result is a new substance with unique properties. Alloy eyewear incorporates these properties into the new frame material. This makes metal alloys an excellent option for eyeglass frames.

Aluminum-magnesium alloy is considered by many to be the best for both prescription and non-prescription eyewear.

Why choose aluminum-magnesium frames?

Aluminum-magnesium glasses are lightweight, corrosion resistant, and comfortable to wear.

This alloy is made from blending magnesium and aluminum with other metals – usually zinc, manganese, silicon, copper, rare earths, and zirconium. Styles featuring aluminum-magnesium often have a distinct, glossy appearance.

Aluminum (aka, “aluminium”) is highly sustainable, recyclable, lightweight, and deeply alluring. In short, it’s the perfect metal to complement magnesium in a best-in-class pair of glasses frames.

Magnesium is the lightest structural metal. It makes frames lightweight, sweat resistant, and comfortable to wear. The addition of high-quality magnesium also makes aluminum alloy glasses more colorfast, meaning the frames won’t fade over time.

Moreover, magnesium is a low-density material. This translates into excellent heat dissipation performance and extended durability. It’s also highly resistant to stress.

Aluminum-magnesium alloy is widely used in the electric power, aerospace, and manufacturing industries. This is due to its lightweight characteristics and excellent properties.

The complex manufacturing process of aluminum-magnesium frames has driven up the production costs. As a result, these high-quality frames are mostly used in high-end sunglasses and the safety sports eyewear market.

Of course, they make for some incredible prescription eyeglasses or reading glasses, too!

Are aluminum-magnesium eyeglasses better than plastic?

It depends! The answer to the debate of plastic vs metal glasses depends on what you want from your eyewear.

For durability, you can’t go wrong with aluminum alloy glasses. Aluminum-magnesium frames are sturdy, yet malleable. This makes them comfortable and easy to adjust. They won’t shatter, crack, or chip when you drop them, either!

Because aluminum glasses are so robust, they can often last through several sets of lenses. Of course, you’ll still need to get your eyes checked regularly. It’s recommended that you get your eyes checked every two years or more.

When it comes to weight, metal and alloy frames tend to be thinner and lighter. However, those looking for a greater array of colors and patterns might find plastic to be preferable and worth the tradeoffs.

Naturally, if you’re looking for cheaper frames, plastic eyeglasses are the way to go. The metal alloy frames sold at Yesglasses are still affordable. However, budget-conscious shoppers may prefer the savings they get from a great set of plastic frames. Ultimately, the choice is yours!
