Committed to steadily increasing the use of sustainable materials in its production, Dalloz Creations®, inventor of the patented CRIDAL® SUN LENS material (BPA & Phthalate free lens material) announces the launch of a new Bio-based lens material: BioNylon.
Step by step, Dalloz Creations is committing to a more sustainable approach in its production lines and choice of materials.
Having initiated a programme for reducing pollution and CO2 emissions some years ago, Dalloz Creations is now using electrical press in production lines and promotes the use of local suppliers.
Combining design and innovation, the company states that it has always imagined the future with a comprehensive ecological approach in its production of sun lenses.
The new BioNylon material by Dalloz Creations is made from an ecological resin derived from castor oil, taking its energy from the bio-mass.
The castor plant grows in semi-arid areas and does not compete as a food crop. The production process requires less energy than the production of a classic lens, and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions thanks to its purified resin quality. According to Dalloz Creations, the material has the same optical clarity as Nylon, with the following properties:
- Transparency and light transmission
- Low haze
- Blocks 100% UVA, UVB, UVC
- High chemical and stress cracking resistance Compatible with acetate and rimless frames Recyclable thermoplastic material Guaranteed without BPA and phthalate Lightweight
- High thermal resistance
- Impact resistance: passes the 45m/s test.
