Cellulose is made of cotton extract or, increasingly, from tree pulp, especially eucalyptus. This makes it a natural polymer, highly prized by eyewear designers.
Making acetate plates can take up to 120 hours of work. Acetate is a fascinating material for making eyewear. It can be milled, polished and transformed into ever new trendy frames with inexhaustible color combinations.
Cellulose acetate also has other interesting properties. Hypoallergenic, it is suitable for all eyewear wearers. In addition, it is much stronger than plastic.
The barrel stage
Filled with wood chips, the frame is laid for 48 to 72 hours. There the glasses are shaken like in a washing machine. The action of the chips will cause a soft and progressive abrasion which will smooth the bezel and give it a soft appearance.
One of the steps in making an eyewear is polishing.
To do this, we use a wheel made up of several thicknesses rags on which clay powder is applied. Next, depending on the speed and pressure you put on the sunglasses, the acetate will be more or less brilliant.
