Maui Pure is the latest breakthrough thinnest and most lightweight lens material in the Maui Jim sunglass stable.
Maui Pure has proven crisp optics like thin glass and excellent scratch- and impact-resistant properties and the famous colour vibrancy that results from the use of three rare earth elements causing blues to be bluer, greens to be greener, and reds redder in a colour popping view that has to be seen through to be fully appreciated.
The rimless style features beta-titanium temples and adjustable Rabalon nose bridges for ultra-lightweight comfort.
Neutral Grey offers the highest level of light reduction for bright, sunny days; HCL Bronze enhances contrast in variable conditions; and Maui HT (High Transmission) is the lens for when most lenses would be too dark.
The total weight of the frame and lenses is only 10 grams with minimised temple tip pads.The nose pads have better grip and less slip.

FINISHING TREATMENTS & LENS TECHNOLOGY:
• PolarizedPlus2 lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, block 100% of harmful UV, and absorb harmful HEV (High energy visible wavelengths)
• MauiPure LT as well as being the newest, thinnest, and the most lightweight lens material, has optics nearly as clear as SuperThin Glass, with exceptional impact and scratch resistance.
• Optically correct, distortion-free lenses feature patented lens treatments and rare earth elements. Colour and clarity are enhanced using natural light with full UV filtering for the eyes and surrounding skin.
Designed with performance in mind, the total weight of the frame and lenses is 10 grams. The temple tip pads have been minimised, and the nose pads have been designed for advanced airflow technology to provide better grip and less slip. The MauiPure LT retains all the same attributes of MauiPure, yet is 27% thinner. MauiPure LT is available in two new rimless styles, ‘Hema’ and ‘Hikina’ in Plano
RARE EARTH ELEMENTS
Rare earth metals are a group of 17 elements – lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, lutetium, scandium, yttrium – that appear in low concentrations in the ground. Rare earth metals and alloys that contain them are used in many devices that people use every day such as computer memory, DVDs, rechargeable batteries, cell phones, catalytic converters, magnets, fluorescent lighting
Incorporating three rare earth elements in patented Maui Jim technology (neodymium, erbium and praseodymium) increases the amount and quality of red, blue and green the eye perceives
Neodymium is used with iron and boron to create powerful permanent magnets, also called NIB magnets. NIB magnets are used in computers, cell phones, medical equipment, toys, motors, wind turbines and audio systems. Neodymium is used as a crystal (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) in lasers.
Erbium is a silvery-white solid metal when artificially isolated, natural erbium is always found in chemical combination with other elements. Erbium isotopes are good neutron absorbers and are used in nuclear reactor control rods. The oxide erbia is used as a pink coloring agent in glazes and glasses. Erbium is used in alloys especially with vanadium to decrease the hardness of metals. It is also used in amplifiers and lasers.
Praseodymium is used to make specialized yellow glass goggles for glass blowers and welders. Flame lighter flints use misch metal (a rare earth alloy) containing praseodymium to produce sparks by friction. Praseodymium salts are used to colour glasses and enamels.
