A newly alloy

April 23 2020

Okia has created a brand-new collection of ultra-light eyewear made with a newly invented alloy called Superflexium. Thanks to many years of continuous research and study with their team of experts, Okia has learnt and well-handled key technologies for magnesium aluminium alloy eyewear manufacturing, such as perfectly insert hinges or stable anodizing treatment for complicated structures in high quality. Okia’s engineers have custom-designed a new alloy which is stronger and lighter than standard alloys: Suflexium is a magnesium aluminium alloy offering the highest strength and lightest metal material to the industry. 

Suflexium was designed to be weightless. The alloy is one-third the weight of steel, meaning parts can be made thicker and stronger while still reducing weight. Suflexium is more durable and resistant than conventional metals allowing wearers to confidently embrace every challenge without any hesitation. Its hypoallergenic feature provides a peace of mind experience for wearers who concern about metal allergies. Suflexium resists corrosion from facial acids and retains its color much better than other types of metals used in eyeglasses frames. It is highly resistant to most environments and naturally generates a protective oxide coating.

Forged from aerospace Magnesium Aluminium Alloy, the Suflexium collection provides the ultimate in comfort with ultra-flexible arms.
