Glass Sandblasting: A Blast Well Worth It
Sandblasting can be applied on a multitude of surfaces such as acrylic and wood, but nothing is quite as beautiful as the results when glass is sandblasted. The deep etching on glass trophies and awards looks quite dazzling. When we think of sandblasting, we have a vision of frosted glass. It is a technique where the longer the technique is applied to the area of glass, the deeper the etching appears.
Glass sandblasting is a technique where a special abrasive sand is applied to a stencilled surface at a very high pressure. When the stencil is removed, the areas affected by the sand abrasive appear frosted and textured while the rest of the glass remains smooth. The beauty of glass sandblasting is that it shows the brilliant contrast between the etched surface and the mesmerising clear surface.
Both crystal and glass are very versatile materials and a wonder to work with. We believe that working in glass sandblasting is an art. We can create the finest products of trophies and awards when we work in this medium. We have seen a huge shift in the last few years, from acrylic to optic crystal. Glass sandblasting in this medium offers a product that is filled with clarity and brilliance and allows the message to shine through.
For the perfect optic prism that reflects light spectrum, use an optic crystal for your glass sandblasting. The trophies that can be made from this are spectacular.
The Uses of Glass Sandblasting
