1. When should I choose frosted glass instead of clear glass?
Since the frosted glass is opaque, you can choose it as privacy-required or decorative places, from shower screens, meeting room partitions, toilet windows, and doors, tabletops, balustrades, etc.
2. Is the frosted glass can be used as safety glass?
Yes! The frosted glass can be toughened, laminated, and combined into double glazing to play an important role in safety glass.
3. What’s the difference between frosted glass and sandblasted glass?
The frosted glass is made by corroding the glass surface using Hydrofluoric Acid to achieve an opaque appearance. While the sandblasted glass is made by corroding the glass surface using Silicon Carbide.
The frosted glass surface is very clean, however, the sand-blasted glass surface is dirty even after washing.
4. What else other glasses I can choose besides frosted glass?
To achieve an opaque appearance, you can use sandblasted glass, ceramic fit glass, digital printing glass, milky laminated glass, etc.
