Safilo / Optyl: a unique trademark for unique eyewear

Lightweight, hypoallergenic eyewear with original colour effects and exceptional qualities? If it is also extremely fashionable, it becomes absolutely irresistible!
All this is possible thanks to Optyl, a trademark which identifies a plastic used exclusively by Safilo for some of its most unique models.

Optyl is a revolutionary innovation for people who want to wear eyewear with extraordinary characteristics: it is no coincidence that some of the most prestigious brands that Safilo produces include models in their collections which use the particular material identified by this trademark.

The product of a special combination of substances, it is a thermosetting plastic material which is extremely lightweight and comfortable because it adapts to the wearer's face. A durable material, it is also hypoallergenic since it contains no plasticisers. Furthermore, it is treated with a special surface coating which protects it from corrosion caused by sweat and cosmetics.
All these exceptional characteristics are encapsulated in a frame which can also pride itself on outstanding colour and three-dimensional effects.

Optyl is a trademark registered by Safilo.


The bottle preserves the result of an experiment which aptly demonstrates one of the special properties of this material: its memory effect. In fact the bottle and frame front have been heated to a temperature of 140°C; when the front frame reaches this temperature it is deformed, but once inserted in the bottle, it cools and reverts back to its original shape.
