Smith Optics & Arkema present 'Evolve' sunglasses collection

Jul '09
Smith Optics and Arkema unveil the new “Evolve” sunglasses collection using Rilsan Clear G830 Rnew at the Outdoor Retailer Summer fair in Salt Lake City, Utah from July 21st to 24th.

Rilsan Clear G830 Rnew offers all the necessary characteristics to provide Smith Optics with the required quality for their new “Evolve” sunglasses collection: optimal comfort, lightness, good impact resistance, superior durability, and nice flexibility.

A total of 20 new “Evolve” sunglass frame models* are made entirely of Rilsan Clear G830 Rnew, a bio-renewable sourced polymer derived from castor oil. This new collection perfectly fits in with Smith Optics's durable eco-design strategy.

Rilsan Clear G830 Rnew uses 54% bio-based raw material, thus helping reduce CO2 emissions. It naturally offers the same key benefits, namely freedom of design, comfort, and durability, as classical Rilsan Clear G350. It is one of Arkema's latest innovations in high performance bio-based polyamides. Rilsan PA11, Pebax Rnew and Platamid Rnew have demonstrated Arkema's ability to offer innovative bio-based solutions for highly demanding markets.

The use of Rilsan Clear G830 Rnew in the new Smith Optics models marks the start of a new adventure and a close collaboration between Arkema and Smith Optics.
