Carbon – high-tech material

For years now, Carbon has been replacing metal parts in aviation and medical sectors as well as in the automobile industry. The extreme lightweight Carbon fibre combines numerous benefits such as high tensile strength, exceptional durability and stability. Thus, spectacles made of Carbon ensure highest wearing comfort whilst also being allergy-free.

All BLACKICON Carbon frames are milled from one single Carbon plate.

Titanium – exceptional comfort

Weightless and solid at the same time – Titanium is an impressive material. Its unique characteristics and the elaborate extraction process make titanium one of the most wanted raw materials of all high-tech branches as well as of the eyewear sector.

Ultra-lightweight, flexible and durable, Titanium is also hypoallergenic and non-corrosive.

BLACKICON Titanium frames combine high-tech material with state-of-the-art design.

Stainless steel – perfect fit

Stainless steel being strong yet flexible, non-corrosive and allergy-free is one of the most used materials of the optical sector. Thanks to its excellent formability, stainless steel frames are best to be adjusted to its wearer. Besides, stainless steel can be polished and coated in many ways which allows numerous design options. BLACKICON stainless steel frames offer a wide range of modern masculine designs.

Wood – all natural

Each wooden frame is unique: the material’s characteristics and its different grains make each product one of a kind. The extreme light weight and the soft feel ensure highest wearing comfort.

BLACKICON frames combine wood with other materials such as carbon to create an outstanding design.

Acetate – design variety

Most people are surprised to learn that acetate is a natural product as well. It is mostly composed of cotton, dried and pressed into sheets with the help of acetic acid. Out of these acetate sheets the raw shapes of the later frames are being sawn or milled.

Thanks to its various processing options, acetate is one of the most used materials of eyewear manufacturers. Acetate frames are hypoallergenic and ensure highest wearing comfort due to their minimal weight.

Each BLACKICON acetate frame enhances the individual character of its wearer.

Horn – pure nature

Horn-rimmed spectacles are known to be lightweight and allergy-free. Every single frame is one of a kind due to the individual texture of each horn.

To comply with the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) only water buffalo horn is being used in the production process.

BLACKICON horn-rimmed frames express individuality and style.

Lenses

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses have a special filter that blocks reflected light, reducing glare and discomfort. Roads wet from rain or smooth water surfaces reflect sunlight resulting in disturbing glares and by that decreasing contrast sensitivity. Polarized sunglass lenses counteract this effect improving comfort and visibility.

Especially outdoor loving people as well as drivers benefit from polarized lenses.

Anti-reflective coating

Anti-reflective coating (also called "AR coating" or "anti-glare coating") improves vision, reduces eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look more attractive.

AR coating eliminates reflections from the front and back surfaces of the lenses. With those reflections gone, more light passes through the lenses to optimize visual acuity.

All BLACKICON sunglasses come with polarized lenses with inner antireflective coating.
