Sandblasted Glass by Bear Glass

Bear Glass provides the service of sandblasting glass.   Sandblasting glass is becoming one of the very popular methods of etching glass.  Sandblasting glass can result in producing the most elegant etching on glass.   There are various techniques used in sandblasting glass that can create works of art as a finished product.  Sandblasting glass creates beautiful frosted and carved designs in glass.  Sandblasting has a bunch of functions.

It can be used to soften rough surfaces,roughen soft surfaces,take off unwanted surfaces,or shape a surface.   Items as small as a pendant and as large as front doors can be sandblasted.  The technique takes practice and the right tools,plus a delicate touch if you’re etching glass.  Bear Glass specializes in equipment for decorative sandblasting.  Whether you’re blasting trophies or decorative art glass,you can count on Bear Glass to have the answers you need.   We are happy to assist you in assembling a complete system,including all the small accessories.   We can help you match what equipment you need with equipment you already have.   With Bear Glass,you get the industry’s best-priced sandblasting systems supported by lifetime technical assistance.

Sandblasting can be used for interior fixtures like shelves,tables,and more. S andblasting is done with a high speed machine that bombards the glass panel with sand,walnut husks or other materials.  Sandblasting glass offers versatility in creating design effects. First,homeowners can choose a level of glass opaqueness from light,medium or heavy.  Also,sandblasting makes it possible to “frost” sections of a glass shower,such as creating privacy strips or patterns.  Sandblasting glass is also known as sandcarving.  This method allows a greater control method to produce the highest quality work.

The process of sandblasting glass uses the same steps of producing any etching stencil but the material usually needs to be thicker to withstand the pressure of abrasive blasting as sandblasting glass does.   The sandblasting glass method takes place by blasting abrasive from the sandblaster over the stencil resist material.  This is all powered by the supplied air from the air compressor.   The glass becomes eroded to create a frosted elegant design.

In the world of Sandblasted Glass there are two techniques,etching and carving.  Etching is when abrasive is blasted at the glass lightly to give the glass a frosty appearance.  Depending on the speed and angle the abrasive is being applied,different shades can be created,allowing the glass to be a true work of art.  Carving on the other hand is when steadily sandblasting is done to the surface of a glass using stencil which protects the areas you don’t want to be carved out.  Sandblasting as a technique for carving can be much nuanced,with differing depths and angles of cuts creating an array of lighting effects that may be quite beautiful.

Bear Glass Double Sided Acid-Etched Glass

 

Bear Glass Is A Premier Walker Distributor.  We are better able to serve our customers with 2 facilities located in both Brooklyn NY and Tinton Falls NJ.  Our Motto is “ We Do Everything In Glass And Mirror”, so we are able to service any and all your glass and mirror needs.

Double Sided Acid-Etched Glass

Etching two faces of the glass provides many applications which can be used as much for residential as for commercial uses.

Some of the more common applications include:

–         Office enclosures

–         Interior Doors

–         Railings

–         Shelving

–         Furniture components

–         Interior partitions

–         Sealed units

–         And many more

Double sided acid-etched glass also has many advantages, such as:

–          It offers more opacity than one sided acid-etching, perfect for those looking for enhanced privacy or to use as spandrels in a building facade.

–          It provides a consistent finish on both sides                          

–          Glare is reduced on both sides of the glass

–         It offers flexibility with varied visual effects from different finishes: Opaque/Opaque, Velour/Velour and Satin/Satin

–         And finally, it offers the unique possibility of combining full surface etching on one side with an acid-etched pattern on the other

Going with the inspiration of the last advantage mentioned above, Bear Glass has come a long way from its first launch of  Walker  Nuance patterns in 2008.  In June 2012, Bear Glass was proud to announce the launch of six new patterns by Walker Glass , two of which featured double sided acid-etched glass, namely patterns 511 and 512.

Having a pattern on both sides of the glass is a brand new feature of the product line and provides a good cross section of  Nuance capabilities. This trait gives the impression the glass has greater depth.

Also available are custom designs, on either one face or two.  As an example, Bear Glass ran a prototype of a pattern etched on both sides which gives a sort of criss-cross effect.

This is very interesting in terms of the possibilities architects and designers will be able to create. The addition of this new feature, double sided acid-etched patterns, will stimulate the imagination of architects and designers and help them come up with custom patterns meeting their own design intent.

Glass Etching By Sandblasting Glass


 

Bear Glass provides the service of sandblasting glass.  Sandblasting glass is becoming one of the very popular methods of etching glass.  Sandblasting glass can result in producing the most elegant etching on glass.  There are various techniques used in sandblasting glass that can create works of art as a finished product.

Sandblasting glass is a special glass treatment with the smallest abrasive particles that are forwarded together with an air stream at a special chamber.

A creative and decorative way of decorating glass is by enhancing it by the sandblasting glass method.  Basically, a matt image is being etched into a glass or mirror surface.

Sandblasting glass is also known as sandcarving. This method allows a greater control method to produce the highest quality work.  The process of sandblasting glass uses the same steps of producing any etching stencil but the material usually needs to be thicker to withstand the pressure of abrasive blasting as sandblasting glass does.  The sandblasting glass method takes place by blasting abrasive from the sandblaster over the stencil resist material.  This is all powered by the supplied air from the air compressor.  The glass becomes eroded to create a frosted elegant design.

Glass etching via sandblasting glass is a beautiful and elegant method of creating a graphic design on the surface of an otherwise smooth piece of glass. Etched and carved glass has been widely used throughout history, being found in upscale banks, hotels, residences, restaurants and theaters. The resulting etched surface can then be embellished even further with color to produce an even more impressive end result.

Sandblasting glass is the perfect addition to glass doors.  The etchings make wonderful details to front doors or kitchen cabinets.  Bear Glass can help you design your sandblasting glass needs to best fit your project or overall design goal.  Sandblasting glass can provide you with design alternatives that you did not think were possible.

Etch It Up With Bear Glass!!!

Let us realize your vision in glass!!!

In the world of sandblasting there are two techniques, etching and carving. Etching is when abrasive is blasted at the glass lightly to give the glass a frosty appearance. Depending on the speed and angle the abrasive is being applied, different shades can be created, allowing the glass to be a true work of art. Carving on the other hand is when steadily sandblasting is done to the surface of a glass using stencil which protects the areas you don’t want to be carved out. Sandblasting as a technique for carving can be much nuanced, with differing depths and angles of cuts creating an array of lighting effects that may be quite beautiful.

Common to residential homes, there is a need for privacy in areas of the front entry or over a tub in the bathroom. These are areas where an elegant or sophisticated design can lend to the privacy desired along with adding beauty and character to a home. Etched glass designs add a great look to recreation areas and bathroom mirrors. Home bar mirrors with your own personal name for your get away create an interesting and elegant look for entertaining or personal enjoyment. Etched glass table tops have enhanced many dining rooms with sandblasted and carved designs.

Let Bear Glass help you make a good first impression with your corporate logo sand blasted above your receptionist!!!

In many commercial environments, the need for name recognition is vitally important.

Also, it is very helpful for clients in locating your office space in larger office buildings .

Glass etching on an entrance to a home or office creates a dramatic first impression like no other architectural material can. Etched glass entrys and etched glass doors are elegant and quite sophisticated, modern yet can be very classic.
