Titanium's many desirable properties have made it the metal of choice in many industries. No other engineering metal has risen so swiftly to pre-eminence in critical and demanding applications.
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.
Many thanks for super quick excellent service and repair to my titanium rimless spectacles. I posted them to you Thursday 4pm. and got them back Saturday 9.30am. Less than 48 hours — brilliant. I was a bit worried at you being an on-line service but I'm very impressed and will recommend to others.
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.
A week ago a local optician said my titanium frames could not be repaired. One of your competitors recommended by a nationwide chain of opticians but they were not transparent on their pricing policy. I tentatively chose AlphaOmega. Brilliant service — 24-hour turnaround. Clear pricing. Very impressed and I will not hesitate in recommending your company. Well done and thank you.
No fault now. Very impressed by the service. Brilliant job, super fast turn round. Very happy. Will use you again. Thanks. Really unsure if you could repair the frame at that point as it's so thin. Perfect colour match and like new.
