What exactly is glass splashbacks?
In simple terms it is toughened glass which is back painted (backpainted) with automotive paint. Permanent adhesion is obtained by mixing the urethane paint with a catalyst which changes the molecular structure of the glass, which ensures the permanent bonding between glass and paint. So the paint used is not a PVA or water based paint.
What are the main advantages of glass?
The strong adhesion between paint and glass makes the product durable.
Glass is easy to clean & maintain since it is non porous and any chemical can be used to clean it.
Toughened glass is safe. If it breaks it shatters into small pieces that will not cause serious injury like standard glass.
It delivers many exciting colours…
