Titanium and its alloys have proven to be technically superior in a broad range of industrial and commercial applications in such fields as aerospace, architecture, sporting equipment, military hardware, watch-making, medical implants, dental products and more.
Titanium is a super-light, durable and stable metal that makes it ideal for spectacle frames. It is corrosive resistant — perfect for people who live around salt water or have a skin acidity type that is very high.
Titanium is expensive compared to other frame materials. To combat the costs, some frame designers use titanium alloys or titanium combined with other metals. These metals include copper and nickel, which alter the aspects of titanium in different ways.
However titanium can still break, and that probably is the reason you are visiting this site.

The physiological inertness of titanium makes it available as a replacement for bones and cartilage in a variety of surgeries.
Titanium is used for heart valves, pacemakers, dental implants, artificial hips and joints. Titanium is also used in surgery equipment and wheelchairs.
Titanium is used in metallic alloys as a substitute for aluminium because of its strength and lightweight, along with its heat and corrosion resistance.
Alloyed with aluminium and vanadium, titanium is used in aircraft for firewalls, outer skin, landing-gear components, hydraulic tubing, and engine supports.
The compressor blades, disks, and housing of jet engines are also made of titanium. A commercial jet transport uses between 3500 and 12000 kg (7000 and 25000 pounds) of the metal.
The use of titanium has made space exploration possible. The Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules were made largely of the metal. The space shuttle has many titanium parts as well as the international space station.
Titanium is also widely used in military hardware such as jet fighters, missiles, tanks, ships and submarines. It is also used for spectacle frames and sunglasses frames.
The process for repairing is not straight forward. It can't be soldered as traditional frames are. It requires ultra-modern laser technology to weld and bond this remarkable material.
AlphaOmega Glasses Repair has invested in this new technology and is now a specialist in the titanium spectacle frame repair process.
The bridge on my titanium glasses parted and my optician and other repair companies gave me the impression that my glasses could not be repaired and I had to buy new glasses at £400. Then found AlphaOmega. The broken glasses are repaired and I cannot find the join. Well done. A very happy chappy
I'm really pleased with the repair and surprised that a repair was possible at all. The titanium frames were badly twisted and the lens holders were squashed after being sat on. The glasses were returned to me within a couple of days fully repaired.
Had a titanium frame with expensive lenses (high refractive index, varifocal, transitions) and a broken hinge. I was unable to source a replacement frame which would use these lenses. Superb repair. Posted Tuesday and received back by special delivery Saturday morning (prior to a Bank holiday — which I thought would cost extra). Really top rate service.
I just received back my broken titanium glasses in two days ... Excellent fast, and efficient service and the quality of the repair is excellent. It's like having a brand new pair of glasses but without the huge expense. Excellent value for money. I can't thank you enough for such a good and professional service. I will be "highly recommending" AlphaOmega.
