Changing the Status Quo: ECO6

The first lens material to be made entirely from plant-derived raw materials, CR Labs says ECO6 is “changing the status quo” when it comes to conventional optical lens manufacturing methods.

By replacing petrochemicals with biomass plant-based products, ECO6 is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 14% compared to conventional petroleum-based products.

ECO6 supports consistent tinting unlike previous 1.6 materials and 1.6 index tint-able hardcoats, with the substrate absorbing up to 85% tint density in any colour.

The biomass material produces a consistent tint density and colour which provides superior colour matching abilities and is less likely to fade over time after being sealed with a non-UV cured hard coat. It also has the strength of a regular 1.6 index material, which makes it more than suitable for rimless, nylon and inline fitting methods.

ECO6 is the only biomass lens material certified and recognised as a biomass product by JORA (Japan Organics Recycling Association) and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).

Available across all CR Labs lens designs, and in stock single vision multi-coat lenses, including a 70mm diameter for +0.25 sphere to +2.00 sphere.
