By using a compressed-air sandblaster gun, the sandblasting material is blasted onto the item, and depending on the material, small parts are removed. The item becomes clean or the surface material becomes compacted.
Different blasting materials produce different results. The sandblast roughens the surface of the glass, thus it becomes matte. The degree of roughness, the result on the surface, depends on the grain size, the type of the blasting material, the blasting pressure, the distance to the item, the duration of the blasting process, and the angle of impact.
We obtain our matte surfaces by treating them with very fine blasting material in order to achieve a satin-like surface.
