Your questions about designing with low-iron acid-etched glass, answered.

So, what’s so special about designing with low-iron glass? To start, low-iron glass like Vitro’s Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass doesn't have the greenish tint inherent to regular “clear” glass, so it can deliver a cleaner, purer light. The clarity of the glass then becomes even more apparent when you add a full surface acid-etched finish, making it the perfect blank canvas for designers and architects.

In the Glass Education Center, our friends at Walker Glass discuss the ins and outs of designing with low-iron acid etched glass, including data on its performance compared to unetched clear glass, and offer some exclusive tips from the experts on how to maximize your next design.
