The Versatility Of Glass: Types of Glass Techniques You Should Know About

Versatility- the one thing that makes glass very unique. Its changeable quality makes glass timeless and classic with infinite possibilities. Through the years, glass has swiftly progressed past its earlier forms and applications. Today, technology has contributed to the innovative evolutions that had made glass an essential component to engineering, architecture, interior design, and even safety.

There are many types of glass existing today, and there are several others that are under development. From classic hand-made pieces assembled by artists to modern panels created using the latest technologies, Glass suppliers like Mirodec offer a full range of techniques possible in the world of decorative glass and mirrors. Let’s examine some of them.

UV Printing

UV printing technology takes glass to a whole new level.  UV ink is used to print full-color, high-resolution images and designs to virtually any glass surface. UV printing is economic and creates fast and professional results.

UV printing offers high personalization of glass and mirror designs. It can be used for advertising, furniture, and interior design applications. Designs can range from marble imitations to wooden textures. It can be applied to wall mounts, freestanding room dividers, shower doors/walls, backsplashes, and kitchen cabinets.

Stained Glass

Stained glass has existed for so long that it is classified as one of the oldest and most refined glass techniques in the market. The craft of stained glass is a unique art form in itself. It has the ability to transform any interiors through light and captivating colors. More than just adding aesthetic, stained glass also offers privacy and sophistication.

Its distinctive feature is that it is handmade. Each stained glass panel is made with delicate and technical precision, combining both art and technology. Stained glass can be seen in entryways, false ceilings, rose windows, door panels and houses of worship.

LCF (Liquid Crystal Film)

The technology of LCF has paved the way for countless solutions for everyday needs especially privacy.  To put it simply, LCF glass enables you to have control over whether you want the glass to be opaque to create a more private and quiet space, or crystal clear to enjoy the view of the outside- all with a hit of a switch.

LCF laminated glass can also be used to block UV. This makes it ideal for residential applications. It is perfect for windows, doors, bedrooms, living areas, and other house interiors. Not only is it perfect for homes but it is great for corporate and commercial spaces as well.

The confidentiality that LCF offers is perfect for office partitions, exterior walls of buildings, office conference and meeting rooms, specialty shops, showrooms, and hospitals.
