Similar to acid etched satin, sandblasting the glass frosts the glass by impacting sand onto the surface of the glass. The frosted effect is very similar to satin glass, but leaves a more frosted effect with more of a powdered rough surface. Again sandblasted glass can be used for privacy use. The advantages of sandblasting over satin acid etched is its ease of application and versatility in design. Sandblasting designs offer very attractive results in a variety of uses from windows, showers, doors, signage, mirrors etc. We apply a clear shield protective coating by Ritec onto the sandblast surface, this greatly reduces the chance of marks and smudges on the glass and well as protecting the delicate sandblast layer.
