Chemical methods of glass matting - is damage to the glass surface under the action of chemicals. Today, these methods allow achieving the highest quality matte glass surface.

One way to get a frosted layer on glass is to apply a special coating and then bake it in a kiln. In this case, the surface is not as smooth as in chemical etching. The disadvantage of this method is the relatively high cost of kilns, which have impressive dimensions and high energy consumption. The advantage is the absence of harmful chemical reagents.

The effect of matting also occurs when white and translucent organic varnishes, paints and polyurethane-based polymeric compositions are applied to the glass surface.
