Benefits of Cellulose Acetate Glasses & Sunglasses

Last Updated on February 9, 2024 by Josh Wilkerson

Cellulose acetate is one of the highest quality and best premium materials for the construction of eyeglasses for a number of different reasons. It is highly durable, resistant to temperature changes, comfortable to wear for an extended period of time, hypoallergenic, renewable, one of the best plastics for dye absorption and for the display of bright and vibrant colors, and it can be easily crafted into amazing geometric forms.

At Classic Specs you will find the majority of the glasses constructed from this premium material, ensuring that any option that you purchase from our online store will last you for years with proper care. The cellulose acetate that Classic Specs uses for its glasses is also imported from Italy from a professional family owned factory.

Amazingly strong and durable
Cellulose acetate is one of the strongest and most durable materials available for eyeglasses. It can withstand a great amount of physical stress, while maintaining its original shape amazingly well and with excellent elasticity. The tough fibers and structure of cellulose acetate are strong and resistant breaking down even if the glasses are worn for many years.

The same material is used for a number of other industrial applications in which the material must be resistant to wear and tear such as for buttons, dresses, home furnishings, draperies and upholsteries, slip covers and much more. You can trust that your glasses will last for as long as you need them to.

Hypoallergenic and renewable
Cellulose acetate is also hypoallergenic, meaning that it does not react with the skin, which can be very important for those who suffer from allergies. The feeling of cellulose acetate on the skin is also one of its top benefits, as it is described as having an organic or natural feeling compared to many other materials.

This makes the eyeglasses very comfortable to wear for long periods of time, as they are barely noticeable due to their light weight and organic touch, and they won’t cause any kind of skin reaction. They are also constructed from cellulose which is a plant based renewable material, making them one of the best materials to produce eyeglasses for those who are environmentally conscious.

Incredible shapes and vivid colors
Cellulose acetate can also be produced with a wide range of different shapes for eyeglasses and vivid colors that stay bright even when the glasses are worn frequently. You can see the diverse range of different shapes of eyeglasses at Classic Specs to get an idea about how easy it is to sculpt cellulose acetate into innovative frame styles. The material also absorbs frame dyes quite unlike any other, with amazing coloration results that are bold, shiny and vibrant. Different patterns just as the tortoise pattern can be easily coated onto the material.

If you purchase any of the glasses at Classic Specs, you can trust that you’re spending your money wisely on high quality Italian cellulose acetate frames that will look gorgeous in person just as they do on our website. Check out our latest cellulose acetate eyeglasses at today
