A complete guide on lacquered glass designs

December 11, 2019

As a staple element in modern architecture, glass is widely used by revered architects and designers to add life to their projects – be it residential or commercial. After all, its natural clear colour renders refinement and simplicity to a structure. Moreover, modern glass is processed to provide several other useful functionalities – acoustic insulation, energy-efficiency, extreme durability, to name just a few. And when functionality meets aesthetics, one cannot help but be awestruck. 

Today’s glass designs have gone even a step further and are not limited to the classic standard colour and transparency of glass. Their opacity levels can be enhanced via a process of colour coating that can take the aesthetics of your space to the next level. Welcome this picturesque member of the glass family – lacquered glass.

What is Lacquered Glass?

Lacquered glass is a type of decorative glass that possesses a layer of colour coating on one of its surfaces. Hence, it is also known as back-painted glass.  Made from a highly durable and opaque lacquer, this lacquered glass coating is baked and cured in the oven. This helps the lacquer bond correctly with the glass and ensures a smooth finish. Since the glass is back painted, lacquered glass possesses an opaque coloured appearance to enhance the aesthetic brilliance of your homes and offices. And although typically used for achieving stylish interiors, lacquered glass can now be processed to acquire durable properties as well.

Lacquered glass is highly sustainable and helps to maintain clean environmental surroundings. The manufacturing of back painted glass complies with the strictest regulations regarding the control of formaldehyde emissions and other volatile organic compounds commonly known as VOCs; for the conservation of the environment. And just like every other glass, lacquered glass is 100% recyclable and non-toxic.
