Colorful pencils in a glass showing behind Guardian acid-etched glass to demonstrate privacy

Scatter light for privacy and style

Guardian acid-etched glass offers a smooth, satin-like decorative surface that scatters light. It offers privacy with compelling finishes you’ll want to reach out and touch—all while letting in abundant natural light. Use Guardian SatinDeco® acid-etched glass to transform transparent to translucent, and create striking environments that seem to glow from within.

How it's made

The acid-etching process partially dissolves the glass surface in order to provide a uniform diffuse aesthetic with a matte finish. Various thicknesses of acid-etched glass are available. As a special order, acid etching can be performed on both surfaces of a sheet of glass.
