Acid-etched & sandblasted glass

Translucent glass is clear or extra-clear float glass rendered translucent by frosting, acid etching or sandblasting on one of the faces. It is available in various thicknesses, in standard or custom-cut dimensions.
Acid-etching gives a frosted finish that is
  • uniform when applied to float glass
  • decorative when applied to patterned glass, it emphasizes its pattern
  • metallic when applied to a mirror, it cancels out the mirror effect and gives the glass a metallic appearance
and gives an incomparable finish when applied to extra-clear low-iron glass.
