Mirror Re-silvering By Bear Glass


 

Who does not want to take a look of him or herself at a mirror? And it always brings back the nostalgia if the mirror is an old one. For an old mirror it is natural that it would be a little discolored or fade, as that adds a different charm to its character. But neither for the old nor for a new mirror we expect a fade reflection or spots on the mirror glass.

 

A mirror, especially a good quality mirror is made of a high-grade glass with silver backing. When this silver-backing is damaged, we find discolorations, marks or scratches on the mirror glass which could not only ruin the look of that furniture but also the view of the whole room. And therefore the damage pieces need re-silvering to bring them back to their old states.

Bear Glass can provide the best mirror re-silvering service for you. For more than forty years Bear Glass has proven its expertise in all kind of glass works nationwide.

Silvering is mainly the chemical process of coating a glass with a reflective substance. Earlier silver was coated on the glass surface. But later sputtering powdered aluminum or other compounds are used in the place of silver. Therefore today, this process is also known as aluminizing.

Bear Glass uses modern technology of aluminum silvering for mirror re-silvering. In this process, a sheet of glass is placed in a vacuum chamber along with electrically heated nichrome coils to sublime the aluminum. The hot aluminum atoms travel at a straight line in vacuum, when they hit the surface of the mirror or glass, they cool and stick to it. Afterwards it needs either an evaporation of quartz onto the glass, or to get exposed in the open air or pure oxygen to form the layer of aluminum oxide.

Bear Glass does both front-silvered and back-silvered mirror re-silvering in this process. Most of the household mirrors are back silvered, which gives the glass a primary protection from corrosion or other damages.

Bear Glass does mirror re-silvering for all kinds of mirror-glass. If you find your household or showroom mirror was affected or damaged, bring it to Bear Glass. We guaranty you a satisfaction that you have never had before. We ship our glass-products nationwide.
