Safilo Builds on Its Partnership with Evonik to Introduce TROGAMID® myCX eCO in Lenses

Safilo is building on its 20-year partnership with specialty chemicals world leader Evonik to use their newest high-quality material TROGAMID® myCX eCO for premium sun lenses.

Safilo will debut sun lenses made of TROGAMID® myCX eCO in January 2022 with the BOSS Spring Summer collection. This high-performance polymer will be progressively rolled out across Safilo’s portfolio, especially in its Made in Italy brands.

TROGAMID® myCX eCO is a sustainable high-performance crystal-clear polymer made from 40% biomass and 100% renewable energy, which results in a 50% lower carbon footprint. It offers a transparency of more than 90%, outstanding mechanical properties, resistance to stress cracking and breakage. Safilo will be the first eyewear player to introduce this material – specially optimized for the optics industry – in one of its licensed brands.

“Sustainability is an integral part of the Safilo’s business philosophy and firmly rooted in our company strategy: this is why partnerships with materials leaders like Evonik continue to be so important as we push the boundaries of sustainable materials and accelerate the industry,” declares Vladimiro Baldin, Chief Licensed Brand and Global Product Officer at Safilo Group.

“It was particularly important for us to offer to a premium manufacturer like Safilo a sustainable polyamide whose properties differ in nothing from those of the TROGAMID® myCX they already use,” says Viviane Papa, who is responsible for Evonik’s high-performance polyamides granules and compounds business. “We at Evonik also follow a strong sustainability business philosophy and are working in many areas to make our products sustainable.”
