Glasses cases incorporate innovative clear plastic material

A British design and innovation company has engineered and manufactured an innovative clear glasses case using a new clear plastic material made by DuPont.

TECAtech made the case for PRISM, London and, using the new material, were able to make the case both structural and prismatic at the same time.

The client wanted the case to be eye catching and made to quality standards as tight as the glasses themselves. Making such an unusual shape created a number of technical problems – normally, thick sections are a problem with plastics as they tend to sink or distort, but by carefully controlling the moulding process TECAtech was able to create the desired effect.

The manufacture took nearly one year to perfect and involved a host of different experts in materials, tool making and moulding as well DuPont's own staff.
