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.

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.

  • 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 Sells Wholesale Low Iron Glass

Bear Glass specializes and is a leader in low iron glass.

Low iron glass is ultra clear and provides a higher degree of transparency compared to clear float glass. This optimum clarity is achieved by removing most of the iron oxide content used to produce glass.

The virtual absence of color makes low iron glass the natural choice when neutral color and clarity count.

 

Low iron glass belongs to a group of extremely clear glass with minimal green cast. High light transmission and brilliant surfaces make this glass ideal for colored glass applications, frame-less glass installations such as shower doors, glass doors and glass table tops. Low iron glass utilizes a raw material formula that increases light transmission and neutrality while reducing the greenish tint in clear glass that is most apparent when viewed from the edge. The result is pure, sparkling and very clear glass.

 

Low Iron glass is a high quality and ultra clear float glass, also called extra clear glass. The transparency of low iron glass can reach 91%. Low iron glass also can be done different deep processes same as float glass, such as, tempered, curved, laminated, insulated, and so on. Low Iron glass is mainly used for photo electricity conversion, solar energy, top-grade buildings, decorative glass, top-grade furniture, imitating crystal product, special type buildings, and so on.

Bear Glass can assist you in using low iron glass for your decorative needs throughout your home or any commercial building.

Properties of low iron glass include high clarity and transparency, low iron oxide content, and not green tint that is inherent in normal float glass.

One of the most prominent places that low iron glass is useful is in glass shower doors.  Bear Glass has a wide range of variety in the field of low iron glass for this usage.

Another usage of low iron glass is with energy based applications.  Solar panels are ideal for this type of glass.  The ultra pure sunlight that can be used by low iron glass is above all others for this necessity.

Starphire Glass And Mirror is Cooler Than A Polar Bear

`

Bear Glass offers Starphire low iron glass for special production runs, so be sure to ask us about it! Why choose Starphire low iron glass? The difference is clear…

Look at “regular” glass and you’ll notice a slight green tint (especially when viewing the edges) that becomes more noticeable when the glass is thicker. Often this is not an issue, but in many applications – such as glass tables and glass table tops, shop windows, entry doors or display cases – clarity becomes more important. And that’s where Starphire low iron glass is clearly better.

Starphire low iron glass is specially made for exceptional clarity, and will not dull or distort the true colors in the color spectrum. Whether it’s referred to as “extra clear, ” “water white” or “low iron, ” the glass is made to be crystal clear and virtually tint-free.

What makes Starphire low iron glass so pure and sparkling? One of the main ingredients in all glass is silica sand, which has naturally occurring iron oxides. These oxides are what cause the greenish tint in glass. But Starlite low iron glass is made from a high grade of silica sand that is almost completely free of iron oxides. By reducing the iron content you reduce the greenish tint and increase light transmission, brightness and clarity.

In fact, Starphire low iron glass can have as little as 10% of the iron content of regular glass, allowing it to transmit 91% of light, compared to 83% for regular glass.

Although the raw materials are different, Starphire low iron glass is manufactured the same way as regular glass, and can be pressed, cut, polished, tempered and otherwise worked the same way as well. It can be used wherever regular glass would be used, from interior and exterior applications in commercial buildings, to glass tables and glass table tops.

With such a brilliant, beautiful look, Bear Glass wants you to consider Starphire low iron glass for your special orders of glass tables and glass table tops.

Characteristics of Starphire glass and mirror

  • Nearly unaltered, neutral, warm reflection
  • Best clarity, truest color, and highest visible light
  • Color purity of desired glass coatings
  • Highest solar energy reflectance of any other acid-etched clear glass

We will ship Starphire Glass worldwide.
