Acid etching is a process by which clear glass is made opaque. This helps provide privacy (i.e., acid etched clear and low-iron glass) and/or helps to meet a design aesthetic (i.e., acid etched mirrors).
Acid etching is a process which is completed by the glass manufacturer. As such, the etching will be uniform across the entire piece of glass. If you want a specific pattern or “privacy bands”, call us to discuss how sand-blasting can help meet your goals for your project.
Almost all of our glass is also available in acid etched, and we typically stock:
- Acid Etched Clear Glass; 5mm; 10mm
- Acid Etched Low-Iron Glass: 10mm
- Acid Etched Mirror (5mm or 6mm): clear, bronze, grey
