Trivex ®, the best lenses for kids – For kids and adults, the standard lens material for years has been polycarbonate. Years ago we had a newcomer to the lens material arena. In 2001, Trivex hit the optical marketplace. Trivex was originally developed for the military, as visual armor. PPG Industries took the technology and adapted it for the optical industry. Trivex is a urethane-based pre-polymer. PPG named the material Trivex because of its three main performance properties. The three main properties are superior optics, ultra-lightweight, and extreme strength. Trivex lenses also provide 100% UV blockage of both UV-A and UV-B radiation. Trivex is able to pass the ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity Impact Test. This test is a requirement for safety lenses. The lens must have a center/edge thickness of 2.0mm. The test consists of a mounted lens being subjected to a 5/8 inch steel ball being dropped from a height of 50 inches onto a lens. Trivex not only passes the test at 2.0mm center thickness, it can even pass the test at a center thickness of 1.0mm. On top of all of that, trivex lenses are very chemical resistant. This material would be great for someone who works around different types of chemicals as other eyeglass materials would be ruined. Kids’ active lifestyles call for product safety and durability and that is exactly what trivex offers.
