What is acid etched glass?
Acid etched glass is exposed to hydrofluoric acid in order to etch a silky frosted surface – not to be confused with sand-blasted glass. Etched glass diffuses transmitted light and reduces glare, making it an outstanding daylighting material. It is maintenance friendly, resisting permanent stains from water and fingerprints. Unlike sandblasted glass, etched glass can be used in demanding applications such as shower enclosures and building exteriors. Should there be any requirement to apply adhesives, markers, oil or grease to the etched surface, testing must be done to ensure removal is possible. Bendheim is proud to partner exclusively with eco-sensitive North American and European etch glass manufacturers.
