Sandblasting

Sandblasting

Very used in the glass decoration and also in the world of office partitions, the sandblasting is a polishing process obtained by abrasive sand projection, corundum, via a jet of compressed air. The corundum grains create small cavities and thus provide the desired frosted or satin effect, decorating then the glass in full or degraded pattern.

The sandblasting can be applied on the annealed (float) glass, the laminated glass and the tempered glass. We use the manual blasting for the glass with small dimensions, for manufacturing objects, furniture, or for the unique shower cubicles. The medium and large volumes of glass are sandblasted through a specialized machine to obtain very fashionable progressive frost in the office layout with glass partitions.
