Question 1: Where are PROFILES mirrors made? Answer: The mirrors are imported but are recut, processed, and packed in the Philippines.
Question 2: Where are PROFILES and ready-made mirrors usually installed? Answer: PROFILES mirrors are usually used in bathrooms but can also be installed in dressers, foyer entrances, living rooms, etc. They can be used as accents to any living space.
Question 3: What causes MIRROR CORROSION? Answer: Defects such as pinholes and chemical components in the manufacture of the mirror itself react to high moisture and humid conditions, leading to black spots and corrosion. Fumes emitted by cleaning chemicals and agents can also cause deterioration. Polishing and varnishing the edges of processed or cut mirrors can provide some protection against moisture.
Question 4: What are COPPER AND LEAD FREE MIRRORS and what distinguishes them from other mirrors in the market? Answer: Copper-free mirrors have improved resistance to humidity and reduced possibility of clouding due to copper oxidation. Combined with the lead-free backing paint, these mirrors offer a distortion-free and clearer reflection. They are also more environmentally compliant and friendly.
Question 5: How do you properly CLEAN MIRRORS? Answer: Simply use a dry to slightly damp cloth to wipe and clean.
Question 1: What are the factors that affect GRAPHICOTE colors? Answer: The color tone of GRAPHICOTE paint is affected by the slight green tint in regular glass, which becomes greener with increased glass thickness. Glass from different production batches can also have slight variations in tint, affecting color shading when painted. Low iron or ultra-clear glass provides a more accurate color tone.
Question 2: What are LOW IRON GLASS and what is the ADVANTAGE of using them? Answer: Low iron glass, also known as ultra-clear glass, has very little iron content, making it clearer than regular glass and eliminating the heavy green tint on the glass edges. When used with GRAPHICOTE, colors become more vibrant and true. However, the clearness of low iron glass may also vary between production batches.
Question 3: Does GRAPHICOTE come with a WARRANTY? Answer: The GRAPHICOTE color coating system carries a 5-year warranty against heavy discoloration and delamination. The warranty does not cover glass breakage, chipping, scratches, or damage due to exposure to corrosive chemicals and the use of adhesives other than the specified Dow Corning Neutral Cure Non Acetic sealant.
Question 1: How much stronger is TEMPERED GLASS and when does it become necessary to temper glass? Answer: Tempered glass is four times stronger than regular annealed glass. Tempered glass is necessary whenever there are safety issues involved. It breaks into small kernel bits, causing minimal to no injuries.
ETCH AND SEAL
Question 1: How can STAINS AND FINGERMARKS on frosted glass be prevented or minimized? Answer: The coating called Etch and Seal can be applied to the frosted surface to make it smoother and less prone to smudges and fingermark stains.
Question 1: What preparations are needed for RAUMPLUS installation? Answer: The carcass or cabinet modules and the flooring where the RAUMPLUS tracks will be installed must be leveled and properly squared.
Question 2: For RAUMPLUS, what is the maximum panel size and number of tracks allowed? Answer: The maximum panel size for RAUMPLUS is 1.5m x 2.75m, and the number of tracks allowed is four.
Question 1: What is so special about digital ceramic printing in-glass? Answer: The digital ceramic ink provides long-lasting, vivid colors that are fused into the glass for outstanding durability even in extreme conditions. Ceramic ink offers unmatched resistance to scratching, acid, UV, and weather, ensuring long-lasting vivid colors. Ceramic inks are compliant with demanding industry standards for quality and durability. With digital ceramic printing in-glass, you can print any design and any color in glass, with complete predictability, repeatability, and ceramic ink durability.
Question 2: How is it different from any other digital printing on glass? Answer: After printing, the glass is tempered, so the inks are fused directly into the glass. Tempering the printed glass to fuse the ink makes the image more permanent. In all other digital printing, the ink is printed on top of the tempered glass and does not fuse into the glass.
Question 3: How long does a digital ceramic printed image last? Answer: The digital ceramic printing solution ensures long-lasting printed images that do not fade or change in color, with absolute durability for many decades.
Question 4: What is the best way to clean printed glass? Is it sensitive to chemicals? Answer: The digital ceramic printing on glass provides high resistance to chemicals. So the glass can be cleaned like any other glass.
Question 5: What happens to the printed glass in extreme weather conditions? Answer: Since the ink is fused into the glass, the printing will stand up to harsh weather conditions, providing long-lasting and vivid colors.
Question 6: What are the glass applications that digital ceramic printing can support? Answer: Digital ceramic printing supports any exterior and interior functionality. Exterior applications include facades, canopies, balustrades, windows, skylights, etc. Interior applications include backsplash, doors, dividers, furniture, wall cladding, shower enclosures, etc.
Question 7: Can you control energy efficiency and glass opacity using digital ceramic printing? Answer: Yes, the unique digital in-glass printing technology with ceramic ink supports light diffusion, light transmission, energy efficiency, solar control, privacy levels, and other functional requirements. However, these elements are dependent on factors such as how saturated or diffused the design is and how much area is covered.
Question 8: Can you print on Mirrors? Answer: No, because mirrors cannot be tempered. The tempering process is crucial to digital printing in-glass because it fuses the ink into the glass.
