Body painted satin glass
You can also order colored satin glass at GlasBoertje.nl. With this type of glass, the etching is applied to tinted glass. This is available in bronze, grey, green and blue tinted glass. This matte finish is made by treating the surface with a special etching liquid (Hydrogen Fluoride). The chemical reaction on the tinted glass creates a corrosion on the surface, giving the tinted glass an even and matt appearance. This matt layer makes the glass plate opaque but translucent. The light is transmitted evenly. When you are close behind the glass plate you see contours but no details. If you wet the satin silk, then transparency is possible. But when that dries up again it becomes opaque again.
The etching is a surface treatment and can be applied to different types of glass. As a result, different types of frosted glass are available, including normal clear satin glass, matt mirrors, frosted glass, extra clear satin glass, etc. etc. On this page, we limit ourselves to the unhardened "transparent" tinted glass types (and not the types with a lacquer or silver layer). on it). Our glass configurator helps you to configure your custom colored satin glass. You can choose from different models, edge finishes and rounded corners.
