SPE - 543.2SCNF *Discontinued* Grape SilverCoat
Spectrum 543.2 Grape Transparent Waterglass coated with silver mirror backing, making it very opaque. SilverCoat styles are great for use in mosaics or any application where transparency is not necessary, but reflection and shimmer are desired.
This glass is non-fusible.
Mirror calls for a little extra care when used in stained glass projects, and SilverCoats are no different. You want to protect the silver coating from chipping during construction and from deterioration over time. Either avoid grinding or use a special mirror bit on your grinder (Mika ME-5F or ME-6F).
If it’s a copper-foil project, remove flux and patina as soon as possible. Then, remember to use a sealant like Sprayway Mirror Edge Sealant. Follow the instructions, lightly spraying the edges and back surface of cut pieces. These little precautions will assure that your SilverCoats stay looking brilliant in your projects.
