Acid-Etched Glass Products

Acid-etched glass, also known as satin etched glass, is a popular decorative glass that provides a smooth and classic look in a variety of finishes. This type of glass maintains its frosted look and finish over time and is easy to maintain. Our selection of patterns varies in light transmission, design, styles, and privacy levels. Frosted glass is very similar, but produced instead through physical treatment of material blasting, typically with sand, to achieve a similar look to acid-etched glass. Both acid-etched and frosted finishes produce varying levels of obscurity, while still allowing in natural light from outside, or from room to room.

Acid-Etched Glass Applications & Fabrication

To manufacture this type of glass, annealed glass is treated with hydrofluoric acid to give the surface a satin frosted appearance. Different applications of the acidic treatment can create many different patterns and visual properties. Acid-etched glass applications vary widely including shower doors, office doors and windows, kitchen and etched glass windows, etched glass doors, decorative glass walls, and satin glass furniture. Acid-etched glass is an excellent option for applications where you desire privacy and decorative quality. Our selection of glass comes in a variety of thicknesses and every style can be cut to size. Most of our acid-etched products can be tempered and laminated as well for safety and peace of mind.
