Common Mirror Resilvering Questions

Frequently asked Mirror Re-silvering questions

Q: Is re-silvering needed?

A: Sometimes mirrors appear to be dirty or streaked on the front surface. The silvering on the back has no problem. So clean the mirror surface properly to check that it has no damage on the front surface.

Q: Is it possible to re-silver a small portion of the mirror?

A: Yes, it is possible to re-silver a portion of your mirror to re-silver. Unfortunately, satisfactory results are not guaranteed and are not always achieved by doing so. If you want the best result a complete re-silvering of the mirror is recommended.

Q: How long does Re-silvering last?

A: The re-silvering should last for decades. However, we can’t control the conditions in which mirrors are hung or mounted. Bathroom mirrors or other mirrors subject to excessive moisture has higher chances of getting disturbed quicker than mirrors in the bed room or other places.

Q: What is used to silver the surface of the mirror?

A: In Earlier mirror making silver was used to coat the glass surface. But in more recent times sputtering powdered aluminum or other compounds have been used in the place of silver. Therefore today, this process is also known as aluminizing. Which makes this service more cost effective.

Q: What if the edge of the m irror has Deterioration?

A: This is very common, frequently occurring on bathroom mirrors where moisture has puddled on the edges. It might not have been installed or sealed properly in the first place. If the mirror is large simple rectangle without bevels it will be cheaper to buy a new mirror than to have it re-silvered. One solution for the problem is to cut off the damaged area and then remount the mirror. Bear Glass also provides mirror cutting services for any thickness.

Q: Does Silver Paint touch up works as re-silvering?

A: No, It doesn’t. Using paint for re-silvering a mirror will get disappointing results. Mirror re-silvering process does involve many steps and techniques that is not possible at home unless you have the proper knowledge.

Bear Glass Has Super Grey Glass

Lately our customers have been asking us if we have grey glass in stock. And the answer is YES! Pilkington super grey glass combines stunning exterior aesthetics and unsurpassed interior glare control with the best solar control performance of any tinted float glass in the industry. On the outside, low-reflective super grey glass tinted Float Glass offers a dramatic, deep cool-grey appearance that increases visual privacy and dramatically reduces read-through from interior shading devices. Inside, it softens bright daylight and reduces glare, making it perfect for applications near computers and video display screens.

Product features & benefits include:

  • An uncoated float glass that provides the performance of a reflective glass.
  • Enhanced visual privacy and reduced read-through from interior shading devices.
  • Best solar control of any uncoated glass, super grey glass provides the lowest shading coefficient of any float glass and a better shading coefficient than many reflective glass products. This means super grey glass can help enhance interior comfort and reduce cooling loads.
  • Unsurpassed light and glare control improves visual privacy and reduces the need for blinds or shades. Super grey glass softens bright daylight and helps eliminate glare, making it the perfect “user-friendly” glass.
  • Low interior and exterior reflectance reduces interior glare and minimizes exterior daylight reflectance. Super grey glass is ideal where architectural designs or restrictions prohibit structures with high reflectance.
  • Ideal for Skylight applications requiring solar control with very low interior reflection, especially at night.
  • Distinctive aesthetics inside and out. Super grey glass offers a deep, cool-grey tint from the exterior, while providing a remarkably crisp, comfortable view from the interior. Super grey glass also provides color-neutral visibility from the inside, resulting in an undistorted, natural view
  • Uniform, no-read through look between spandrel and vision glass areas. The uniform appearance of super grey glass may eliminate the need for an opacifier in the spandrel glass.
  • Low UV  transmittance that significantly outperforms other tinted and coated glass products. 6mm super grey glass blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays.
  • Excellent Availability,   super grey glass can be inventoried for short lead times and improved control of project costs.

Bear Glass Glue Chip Glass Is A Unique Way To Showcase Your Home Or Business.

Bear Glass is the 4th generation family business specializing in Glue Chip Glass.  We stock the largest variety of flat glass in a variety of sizes and color, customizing your Glue Chip Glass.  Alongside of glue chipping we can also fabricate your glass to your needs, from cutting to beveling and more, making Bear Glass your one time glass shop. Glue Chip Glass is basically clear and used for visual diffusion.  This obscure texture allows maximum light to pass while giving cool frozen frost type texture to view.

Glue chipping is the simple process of coating glass with an animal hide glue to the surface of the glass.  The glue which was melted in a double boiler will flow on the surface of the glass about 1/16″ thick.  For best result some artist prefer to sandblast the glass before applying the glue.  As the glue dries (key point) it will contract and chip the surface.

Thus, the term glue chipping. Many factors are key to successful glass chipping.  Some factors are humidity, glass surface, heat, and time.  Additional techniques can be used with glass chipping such as masking off a design on the glass to prevent chipping.  Many sign makers do this for lettering.   Silvering the back or front of chipped glass creates a great mirror.

Glue Chip Glass is a texture that looks like frost during the winter or fern like pattern on a window pane.  This attractive random pattern is created by applying hot animal glue to the sandblasted surface of clear float glass and as it dries, the glue shrinks and cools removing flakes of glass from the surface.   Glue chip glass technique can be used with clear or tinted glass as well as mirrors.  If extra strength is needed it may also be tempered.

As the glue dries, and contracts, it pulls flakes of glass off the surface in a random fashion.  Glue chip glass is very popular for backgrounds in windows and cabinets and is especially beautiful combined with bevels and bevel clusters.

Think outside the box and design your kitchen or bath with our beautiful G lue Chip Glass that will stand out from the ordinary.   Glue Chip Glass that has a frosted design with a very interesting process gives the glass this unique and individual design, and is popular as a  glass room divider panel.  Adding a lot more privacy and separation, yet still allowing the light to flow through it.  Many windows and doors use this technique to add elegance to its environment.  It has been used occasionally in signs and in stained glass windows since the early 20th century.   Glue chip special properties allows every design to be different, giving a uniqueness to every piece of glass or mirror.

Our Glue Chip Glass gives uniqueness to any mirror.  Glass off the surface in a random fashion.  Glue chip glass is very popular for backgrounds in windows and cabinets and bevel clusters.

BEAR GLASS WIRE GLASS


 

Bear Glass has the answers you are looking for regarding wire glassWire glass is used in fire-rated windows and doors because it meets most fire codes. It is made by feeding a welded wire net into the molten glass before it enters the rollers. The wire does not add strength to the glass, but it does hold the glass in the sash if it shatters.

The process of wire glass, or wired glass, is sheet glass in which wire mesh has been inserted during production. The impact resistance of this glass is similar to that of normal glass, but in case of breakage, the mesh retains the pieces of glass. This product used to be accepted as low-cost fire glass but is no longer acceptable for this use. Now, wire glass is mostly used for windows because of it exceptional security qualities. Clear wire glass and obscure wire glass is available at Bear Glass.

Wire glass is a common sight in schools, businesses, and hotels across the nation. Wire glass is manufactured primarily as a fire retardant, with wire mesh inlaid in the glass to prevent it from shattering and breaking out under stress or when exposed to high temperatures. With the window intact, the wire glass keeps the fire at bay, protecting those on the other side from the harmful effects of smoke and flame.

Wire glass typically comes in two types — Misco and boxed. Misco is also called diamond wire glass. In boxed wire glass, the wire is rotated 45-degrees, so that it makes s a checkerboard pattern, rather than diamonds.

There are pros and cons of installing wire glass.

There are many myths about wire glass and its proper usage. Primarily, most people assume that that the incorporation of wire into the glass makes it stronger, and that this makes it a good option for security glass. Actually, the wire in the glass actually weakens the wire glass from a strength standpoint, and makes it more susceptible to breaking. What the wire does do for the glass is hold it in place. That makes it safer from the standpoint that a broken window won’t send glass fragments showering through a room (hence its use in schools), and that the wire will hold the glass in place under extreme temperatures (hence its status as fire rated glass).

Wire glass is a smart addition in any area where a solid fire barrier and safety glass are beneficial. This includes using wire glass in public areas such as schools, public buildings, and businesses, and particularly in areas of these buildings that provide escape routes in case of fire. Windows in stairwells and in hallways that lead to emergency exits are prime examples of areas where fire rated wire glass is a smart addition.

We ship wire glass world wide.
