Etched or frosted glass line

Etched or frosted glass line

A decorative technique used to achieve a frosted look and certain visual effects, through sandblasting or acid etching. In both cases, the end effect is a translucent appearance with good light transmission, while safeguarding privacy because this kind of glass is not see-through.

Different designs can be applied to glass using this technique: images, logos, slogans, etc.

Etched or frosted glass allows for different light transmission indices, as well as a variety of textures and customized designs.

Etched or frosted glass will maintain the technical features and specifications chosen for the product: mirror-effect, extra clear, colour, tempered, laminated, etc.
