Benefits of Acid Etched Glass In Interiors in NY, NJ, Brooklyn

Acid etched glass has been treated with acid to produce a matte surface finish on one, or both, of the surfaces of the glass. Because the surface of the glass has been chemically-created, the finish is extremely durable, and can not be washed or scratched off.

Being able to erase dry erase, wet erase and chalk markers from the surface makes glass the perfect message board for writing specials, messages, and other information for patrons. The one shown above was made out of tinted gray for a semi-translucent effect. It’s hung using standoffs with the glass fabricated with holes to accommodate the hardware.

2) Table Toppers in Restaurants:

This is one of the most practical uses of glass in restaurants,…as a table topper to protect the wood or metal table underneath. A thin, tempered piece can be back painted any color so that it enhances the restaurants branded color scheme as linens would but doesn’t need to be replaced after each patron. Spills, drips, and splatters can be easily cleaned up and it will look good as new for the next customer. We’ve also seen clear glass table toppers used over fine linens, and that’s a good way to prevent having to do a ton of laundry.

 

3) Prep Area Feature Wall in Restaurants:

Glass Cutting using Waterjet cutting solutions by Bear Glass

Abrasive waterjet cutting technology is a great method for cutting glass because it allows for contours and shapes that cannot be achieved with other cutting machines at a reasonable cost. From artistic tabletop inlays to detailed stained glass designs, mirrors, glass ornaments, replacement windows for antique cars, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a waterjet cutting machine can’t tackle.

Glass has a tendency to crack, so it is very important that the initial holes are produced with a reduced pressure . Subsequently, the pressure must be increased to a cutting speed that is cost-effective. For glass, ceramics and other brittle materials, you must gradually increase and reduce the cutting pressure by means of proportional pressure control of the intensifier pump, otherwise, the material would be destroyed.

As an alternative waterjet technology can be used as an abrasive because it is softer, which reduces the potential for chipping, cracking and other surface blemishes and leaves a cut edge that is polished to a smooth finish.Because waterjet cutting does not vibrate the glass, there are no heat-affected zones to leave behind rough edges, almost no secondary finishing is required.

ADVANTAGES OF CUTTING GLASS WITH WATERJET

  • Cut glass geometry that common machining cannot perform
  • Delicate glass does not crack during processing
  • Precisely cut thin to thick glass without changing any tooling
  • Eliminates pressure of cutting process on surface material
  • No heat affected zone
  • No tool to sharpen
  • No need for reworking of the cut edge
  • No waste of material, narrow cutting gap
  • Cost effective means of cutting holes in glass
  • Create intricate design in any shape and size
