316L + Stainless Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, to which mainly chrome is added to make the alloy oxidation-resistant. Stronger than ordinary steel and almost completely scratchproof, 316L+stainless steel is widely used in haute horlogerie. For these reasons, TAG Heuer Eyewear is using it more and more ofter, especially for screws.

MIM stainless Steel (Metallic Injection Molding) is a manufacturing process that involves using stainless steel powders mixed finely with polymer binders to develop complex shapes. Nowadays, sectors such as medical, aerospace or automotive manufacturing use this process frequently.

PVD Coating (Physical Vapor Deposition) involves condensing a metallic vapor in a partial vacuum. Made primarily from titanium carbide, this layered treatment optimizes the life of a finish by reinforcing its surface hardness and resistance to corrosion and scratches.

B-Titanium is an avante-garde metal with unique qualitie. It is biocompatible and hypoallergenic containing no nickel. It is twice as light as stainless steel and corrosion-resistant. It possesses exceptional mechanical properties: resistance and ductile strength (the capacity of a material to be bent without breaking). It is unrivalled qualities ensure its longevity.

Carbon is a material that is generally used in the aeronautical and Formula 1 industries. Carbon is inalterable and therefore exceptionally resistant to corrosion. This high performance fiber is also extremely light (three times lighter than titanium) making it possible to manufacture frames that weigh only a few grams. Finally, it has excellant mechanical properties: solidity, flexibility and responsiveness that withstand the test of time.

Elastomer offers excellent mechanical resistance to wear and water in addition to offering natural elasticity that ensures optimal comfort. thanks to many tests carried out by its Quality Department, TAG Heuer eyewear has slected an ultra resistant and hypoallergenic elastomer for its frames, which is also pleasant to touch.
