Cellulose acetate is one of the most versatile of all plastic frame materials and the most commonly used. It is obtained from cotton flocks and wood pulp, and it can have a great variety of colours, with either a single colour or multiple colours. Acetate is a very adapatable is available in a wide variety of colour combinations and is highly resistant to chemicals. Other advantages of Acetate is that the frames are easy to adapt when need be and is a hypo-allergenic material.
Safilo uses two kinds of polyamide (nylon) materials: TROGAMID and GRILAMID. Both these plastic materials have a high performance and do not cause any type of allergies.

Grilamid is an extremely strong, very lightweight, os easy to heat and shape if needed. Another advantage of having grilamid frame is that they are resisitane to perspirations, cosmetics and detergants.
