i am a treditional mirror manufacturer doing mirror setting and coating silver nitrite on plain glass. i pour stanous chloride solution on plain glass before i pour silver nitrite solution, i believe the purpose of stanous chloride on plain glass is to even distribution of silver nitrite and proper bonding of silver nitrite to the plain glass in the formation of mirror.
