Titanium Repairs

Titanium is a great material being both strong and very light. It isn't therefore surprising that premium spectacle manufacturers have started using titanium in the production of their high-end spectacle brands.

No other engineering metal has risen so swiftly to pre-eminence in critical and demanding applications. Titanium is a super-light, durable and strong metal which makes it ideal for spectacle frames. It is corrosive resistant which is perfect for people who live around salt water or have a skin acidity type that is very high.

Not only is titanium a fashionable material, it is also hypo-allergenic which makes it much more likely that people who purchase titanium products won't have any skin irritation problems. Titanium based products are generally comfortable to wear.

Titanium is expensive compared to other frame materials. To combat the costs, some well know frame designers use titanium alloys or titanium combined with other metals. These metals often include copper and nickel, these can make changes to the look and feel of the end product.

Despite all this, titanium can still break, and Alpha Omega have invested in titanium welding equipment to ensure that we can keep up with the trend.

Repairing titanium frames the traditional way by soldering just will not last. Laser welding is the only process that bonds the broken metal together. This is done under a microscope which allows our technicians to get a perfect join on the break. Laser welding gives a very clean finish and in may cases it is not possible to see the repair.

When laser welding Alpha Omega have also been able to save the many decorative stones that come on ladies designer frames, again giving you peace of mind you will have the best finish possible with our repairs.

Ordering a titanium frame repair is just £34.99. Please see our buy online page.
