Flexon eyeglasses frames are known as the "Bend Me, Shape Me"
eyeglasses. Marchon, one of the world leaders in eyeglass manufacturing introduced
Flexon technology in 1998. The eyeglass collections bby Flexon are highly stylish, fashionable, and built to last. They are made with full rims,
semi-rimless rims, and half rims with a regular hinge and a skill temple with adjustable nose pads. These eyeglasses are perfect for all adult men and women. Some models are progressive friendly, some models are not progressive friendly but every model of Flexon eyeglasses is durable, made for long-lasting style and comfort. For the best value and selection of Flexon eyeglasses are a great choice.
Flexon was started back in 1961 by US naval scientists researching titanium-based alloys to be used in the heat shields of missiles. During this research the scientist discovered that the alloy they created would go back to its original shape after being bent by exposing it to heat. They conducted many experiments with this material, including banging it with hammers and they discovered the dents in the alloy caused by the hammers would revert back to normal and disappear after heat exposure. In the mid-1980s, scientists in the Silicon Valley of California began to experiment with using this Flexon material as an optical frame but they discovered the material could not be welded, or plated so at the time its use with optical frames was not a possibility. Marchon Eyewear eventually patented this Flexon material and in 1988 they launched their first application of Flexon optical frames. The Flexon material is a revolutionary titanium nickel alloy weighing 25% less than other metals, making it much more comfortable optical frame. After being twisted or bent the material goes back to its original shape without damage. Read More
