It is a high tensile strength plastic that will retain its shape under all temperatures. This material is impact resistant, flexible, light weight, and durable. Electric uses grilamid in all of its mold injected eyewear.
Also known as Cellulose Acetate, is a nylon based plastic that is hypo allergenic, and has more transparency and gloss than any other plastic. Acetate produces some of the most aesthetically pleasing eyewear, which is ideal for custom fitting and pliable when heated. Electric exclusively uses Mazzucchelli acetate for all of our handmade Italian acetate frames.
Each of Electric's wire frames utilize a high quality surgical grade stainless steel. This material is non corrosive, hypo allergenic, lightweight and durable.

This premium polycarbonate material is extremely light weight, has excellent visual clarity and definition, provides 100% UV and 98% Blue light protection and boasts superior impact resistance.
Electric is proud to offer melanin infused CR-39 lenses. An industry first that we have developed, exclusively with our lens supplier. CR-39 monomer lenses combine the optical clarity of glass with the durability of a thermoset material. CR-39 lenses stand up to scratches, are light weight and are featured in all of our acetate frames and select wire frames.
Electric's glass lenses offer superior optical clarity, are the most scratch-resistant and have been manufactured as light weight as possible. These lenses are under 2mm thick and have been treated for increased impact resistant. These lenses are featured in all of our Level III Polarized frames.
Polarized lenses provide the benefit of filtering out reflected light and glare off cars, water, pavement, sand and snow. This lens works great for any activity where high glare conditions exist.

Hands down best FRAME and LENS on the market. I am always hearing compliments and selling electrics when I wear these. I ordered mine with glass polarized lens and I am so glad I did. I LIVE at the beach and have sensitive eyes so i am picky about my glasses. I have switched all my friends and family to wearing these things. Detroit XLs are great looking on females and males!

The best everyday shade I've ever owned. Perfect for the beach and on the mountain. Especially ltd edition TROUBLE ANDREW series! with the loveless emblem on one arm and a dagger on the other. So dope..
