Acid-etching, painting, gluing

Sandblasting: this process is carried out using a strong jet of sand that removes some superficial particles of the glass and makes the sheet opaque.

Gluing: gluing is performed using resinoid glues that polymerize by means of UV rays. It is possible to glue layers of glass-glass, glass-metal, glass-marble and glass-wood.

Acid-etching: this process creates a sheet of glass with an opaque effect thanks to the hydrofluoric acid. Compared with sandblasting it does not create porosity and does therefore not retain unpleasant imprints. It can be applied either on the entire surface or on a part of it, creating original and personal decorations.

Painting: created by means of water-based paint: glazed (it copies the effect of acid-etching), coloured (it is available in all colours), silver (it creates a metallic effect)
