Mazzucchelli Acetate is a high quality plastic frame. This is the best plastic acetate in the market today. Working with the best acetate or Zyl acetate is better than less expensive Zyl frames. It adjusts better to fit your face and stays in that adjustment much better. Mazzucchelli acetate is much stronger and is much harder to break. These two factors provide better overall customer service to our patients. Typically Eyewear designers and their manufacturers will also use better hardware or hinges which will help your eyeglasses wear better and longer. All of our Eyewear is made from this type of plastic.
Mazzucchelli Acetate History
This type of plastic has been in the industry since 1849. They have become one of the most innovative companies in the world. In addition to making eyewear they also are involved in the jewelry industry, sports eyewear and now also the furniture industry. This type of acetate or plastic is manufactured in sheets. This is then cut out and mitered to the specification of each frame design.
Cellulose acetate is another form of plastic eyewear. It was introduced in the mid 1800’s but wasn’t ready for manufacturing until the late 1800’s. This type of plastic is combined with other chemicals and plastics to produce eyewear. This process is called injection moulding. Recycled plastic materials are typically used in this process. This type doesn’t hold up as well as the Mazzucchelli acetate. Heat and other environmental conditions can affect this type of plastic eyewear. It typically won’t stay in adjustment as long so you might need to visit an Optician for more frequent adjustments.
