Glass is both an interior and an exterior design material. It’s been manufactured for more than two thousand years, so it definitely has enduring qualities. It’s both decorative and practical, and recently, it’s been rediscovered as an interior surface. Interior glass is being developed and improved all the time.
Interior glass for multiple applications
Low-iron glass. Low-iron glass, also known as toughened T-glass or laminated glass, is an ideal option for interior decorating. The lack of tint means that the glass itself won’t interfere with color applications. Because it has a low iron content, it does not have the green cast that regular sheet glass does. Low-iron glass isn’t new, but it has a clear, bright white appearance, which makes it ideal for decorating large installations. Large installations could include wall coverings, glass backsplashes, doors, countertops and windows. Several manufacturers make low-iron glass, but it is marketed under brand names including Diamant, Eurowhite, Krystal Klear, Optiwhite, Starlite and Starphire, among others.
Low-e glass. Low-emissivity glass is used in applications where UV and infrared light isn’t desirable, but the visible spectrum is. In applications where low-e performance is desirable, Glassprimer™ glass paint provides an affordable option. Glassprimer™ glass paint is highly reflective and UV resistant, making it an ideal coating to achieve low-emissivity objectives using ordinary glass.
Tinted glass. Tinted glass is an attractive option for interior and exterior design. Tinting creates privacy, offers a uniform appearance and reduces glare. When tinted glass isn’t an option, Glassprimer™ glass paint can offer the same option. Glassprimer™ glass paint is available in virtually any color and bonds permanently with the surface of the glass. It resists fading and delamination, and performs well in both humid and dry environments.
