All parents know just how rough kids can be with their toys and clothes, and this can turn into a real concern when it comes to purchasing new clothes and accessories. However, with Real Kids’s new and improved children’s sunglasses, there’s no need to worry about how long your kids’ shades will last. Our Flex-Fit™ technology makes our frames virtually unbreakable.
What Are Flex-Fit™ Shades?
Our Flex-Fit™ technology allows shades to bend, twist and turn in any direction, after which they’ll bounce right back into shape. This is because our Flex-Fit™ frames are made from thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPEE), a polymer that can stretch to twice its length or more at room temperature and then return to its original shape once stress is released, much like traditional rubber. However, unlike rubber, TPEEs are recyclable, colorable by most dyes and consume less energy to create.
Some other characteristics of TPEEs include:
- — Tear and abrasion resistance
- — High impact strength
- — Resistance to chemicals and extreme weather conditions
- — Resistance to high and low temperatures
- — Impact resistance
Our Flex-Fit™ shades are strong, durable and more scratch resistant than the plastics you typically find in a lot of sunglasses. These shades are also shatterproof, making them a safer option for active kids that participate in sports where there’s a danger of impact with fast moving objects.
