Let me tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about EVA, the amazing material behind the most extreme eyewear products.
First of all, the definition: EVA stands for Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, and it is the co-polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate.
Extreme sports enthusiasts should take note. Whether you ride jet skis, raft in white water, race speed boats, water ski or enjoy kayaking, EVA foam will easily become your best friend.
When formulated into the closed cell foam, EVA takes on the following characteristics which are of great advantage for extreme sports glasses:
- Completely tactile – gripping, non-slipping
- Energy absorbing – protects your face from sudden shocks
- Weather/moisture resistant – antibacterial, antimold
- Chemical/oil resistant – easy to clean
- Thermal insulating – keeps your head a steady temp
- Highly resilient – keeps its form fit to your shape
- Smooth and soft – allows for periods of longer wearing
- High buoyancy – will float even in the roughest waters
- Environmentally friendly
This dense and durable foam can be found in many commercial applications, from handle grips to flotation and safety devices, from sporting equipment to childrens toys and furniture. EVA is also typically used as a shock absorber in sports shoes, and the smooth surface cleans easily with an antibacterial cloth.
Superior Gripping – With this miracle foam, ordinary sports sunglasses instantly become strapless goggles.
World Class Floatation – The unparalleled buoyancy of EVA keeps your glasses above the water’s surface, even with polarized sunglasses or prescription lenses.
Long-lasting Comfort – The softness of this material allows you to wear your sports sunglasses for longer periods, letting you play all day long.
In researching the market of sporting eyewear, I’ve found that Bomber Eyewear is the only maker of sports sunglasses that offers Ethylene Vinyl Acetate foam on its products. It’s been proven by jet ski riders, white water rafters, water skiers and kayakers that Bomber’s patented process of adding EVA foam to sunglasses and safety eyewear protects you from the dangers of life on the edge.
Once you try a pair of sports sunglasses with EVA foam, you’ll forever accept no substitute!
