What Is Tr90?

  • 1 min read

Over the summer months, you need a set of sunglasses that won’t be impacted by the sun. If you buy a traditional plastic set of eyewear, the sun can melt them, causing them to be warped and useless. Fortunately Tr90 frames are the thermoplastic frames you need to see you through sunnier climes.

What Are Tr90 Frames?

Tr90 frames are made of transparent granular polymer, which is an extremely flexible polymer type. Tr90 was originally made by theSwiss EMS company.

What Makes Them So Popular?

Tr90 frames are incredibly popular for a huge range of reasons:


They are far more lightweight than standard frames, taking the pressure of your nose and face.


As the material is so flexible, this lends itself well to durability. Your Tr90 sunglasses frames are far less likely to snap or break.

Heat proof

Whereas regular plastic sunglasses might be damaged by the sun, Tr90 frames can withstand up to 400 degrees of heat.


Tr90 frames are far more likely to come in a different range of colors and sizes compared to standard frames, due to the flexibility of the material. This also makes them more likely to accommodate wraparounds.

Consider Tr90 frames today to enjoy lightweight, durable,  and heat proof sunglasses all summer long. You’ll be able to choose from a huge range of frames for a range of face shapes and fashion styles.
