Using its TROGAMID®, Evonik makes eyewear “purple” – the color of the year 2018

In 2018, the fashion world is “purple”. However, the provocative color has become increasingly perceived since the American Pantone Color Institute announced “ultra violet” as the trend color of the year 2018. Evonik follows new ideas and will present at this year MIDO Eyewear Show in Milan its TROGAMID®, a permanently transparent polyamide which is light, strong, and easy to color – not only “purple”.

TROGAMID® T5000, an amorphous polyamide

TROGAMID® T5000, an amorphous polyamide with a transparency of 90%, is an ideal material for optical manufacturers. Compared to other transparent polyamides, the high-performance polymer offers higher recovery and rigidity. Moreover, the material is especially suitable for manufacturing thin frames and semi-rimless eyewear frames, which can significantly reduce the frame weight without affecting material performance. This in turn greatly improves wearing comfort.
