Put an end to distorted images with AIS Mirror. Created to last for generations, AIS Mirror is a distortion-free and, unlike traditional technologies, is an environment friendly product that does not use copper and lead in its manufacturing process. Moreover, AIS Mirror lasts three times longer than conventional mirrors and is characterised by enhanced resistance to harsh cleaning products.

AIS Mirror can be used in a variety of applications like:

  • Showrooms for a larger and more spacious appearance.
  • Sliding doors for cupboards, wardrobes, bathrooms, etc.
  • Contemporary furniture.
  • Display shelves and much more.

Special Features

The superior manufacturing process ensures that AIS Mirror is a high-quality, long-lasting durable mirror that exceeds the most stringent quality and resistance standards.

  1. Copper-free coatings: In ordinary mirrors, once the copper coating is oxidized, due to reagents present in the paint, copper oxide diffuses the silver layer, causing brownish stains to appear. This serious defect is eliminated in AIS Mirror as it contains no copper.
  2. Environment-friendly: AIS Mirror is environment friendly, as lead-free* protective paints are used in the coatings.
  3. Unparalleled resistance to corrosion and ageing: AIS Mirror lasts three times longer than conventional mirrors and is characterised by enhanced resistance to harsh cleaning products.
  4. Compatible with a wide range of adhesives.
  5. Green back paint for easy recognition.

* Very faint traces maybe naturally present in the paint

Instructions for handling AIS Mirror

  1. Installation and Bonding
    • An air-gap of minimum 5mm should be maintained between the mirror back paint and the supporting medium (plywood or wall).
    • The mirrors should be mounted on a perfectly flat, clean, and dry surface. Surfaces which are not flat should be evened out or non-metal spacers should be used to ensure that air can circulate vertically between the back of the mirror and the surface, to compensate for uneven surfaces. This is important to avoid distortion of reflected images.
      The above two requirements are essential when mirrors are mounted in very moist and humid areas such as bathrooms.
    • Synthetic protective collars must be used to minimize the risk of breakage, cracks and splinters, when screw mounting the glass. When framing the mirror or using metal clips, use of non-metal spacers between the mirror and the frame or the clips are recommended. (See Fig.1)
    • If an adhesive is used to mount mirrors, care must be taken to ensure that the adhesive is compatible with the protective coatings on the mirror.
    • As a general rule, for mirrors, use of acid based silicones, such as acetoxy silicones (containing acetic acid) or water, rubber, and polyurethane-based glue is prohibited.
    • Double-sided adhesive tapes are better. However, even when using these, one must ensure that they are compatible with the mirror’s protective coatings. Adhesives must always be applied in vertical stripes. (See Fig 2.)
    • Cleaning – Use clean water only. Ammonia based detergents or other strong and reactive products should not be used.
    • AIS Mirror must be dried immediately after cleaning, especially around the edges.
  2. Cutting
    • Cutting tables must be covered with clean felt.
    • Neutral cutting oils can be used but only in small quantities.
  3. Storage
    • AIS Mirror must be unpacked as soon as possible.
    • AIS Mirror must always be stored vertically on a soft surface, such as wooden boards with spacers, in a dry and well ventilated area, and away from heat and reactive materials such as chemicals, acids, etc.
    • AIS Mirror must never be stored outside in open air.
