Terminology

Acid

It is the chemical solution formed by hydrogen and fluorine (HF)X, used in the acid-etched process.

Anti-slip Certified

Certified anti-slip property of SEVASA's CriSamar® STEP walkable glass, which establishes the rates and results after the application of internationally accepted methods and standards for the safety of pedestrian traffic in the construction of floors and all types of walkable pavements.

Antiscratch

SEVASA's line of acid-etched flat glass with high resistance to scratches, stains and anti-slip, for use in architecture, interior design and furniture.

CriSamar®

SEVASA's line of acid-etched flat glass recognized for its depth of incision giving it a characteristic light and brightness, for use in structures, creation of environments, decoration and furniture.

CriSamar® DESIGN

SEVASA's line of acid-etched satin glass for trendy decoration with surprising motifs, for use in structures, creation of environments, decoration and furniture.

CriSamar® STEP

SEVASA's line of anti-slip floor glass, certified according to international standards and regulations for the safety of pedestrian traffic in all types of locations, including wet outdoor ramps.

Emery Polished

Glass matting process, obtaining a translucent or transparent glass, satin without reflections, smooth or decorated. It can also be engraved.

Also commonly called frosted, satin, matte, matt, acid-etched, opaque, frosted, etc. glass.

Acid etching

The process of transformation of the glass surface with acid, obtaining a translucent or transparent glass with a relevant texture.

Graduel®

SEVASA's flat acid-etched satin glass of gradual opacity, going from transparent to translucent in progressive gradation; for use in architecture, interior design and furniture.

Incision

A slit generated on the glass by means of acid etching to obtain its texture, according to depth, creating shapes and decorative designs on the glass.

Matt Acid etching

The process of transformation of the glass surface with acid, obtaining a translucent or transparent glass but always without reflections. It is the SEVASA process that offers the highest quality and is distinguished by its satin appearance, perfectly homogeneous and a very soft touch. Smooth, decorated or engraved, it disperses and shades the light. Also commonly called satin, frosted, matt, acid-etched, opaque, tarnished, etc. glass.

Light Reflection (LR)

Light beam reflected by the glass relative to the incident light beam. Abrasion resistance: The quality of resisting scratching or degradation by friction.

SatenDecor®

SEVASA's line of flat satin and acid-etched decorated glasses, with high softness to the touch and easy cleaning, for use in the creation of structures, environments, decoration and furniture.

Acid-etched satin finish

The process of transformation of the glass surface with acid, resulting in a translucent or transparent glass but always without reflections. It is the SEVASA process that offers the highest quality and is distinguished by its satin appearance, perfectly homogeneous and a very soft touch. Smooth, decorated or engraved, it disperses and shades the light. Also commonly called matte, matt, frosted, acid-etched, opaque, tarnished, etc. glass.

Sustainability

A term internationally used to refer to the balance with the resources of the environment, and their exploitation below the limit of their renewal (especially environmental resources). It implies satisfying the needs of the current generation without sacrificing the capabilities of future generations. Also called sustainability.

Light Transmission (LT)

Light beam transmitted through the glass in relation to the incident light beam. Ultraviolet (UV) Transmission: Fraction of ultraviolet radiation (spectral field between 280 and 380 mm).

Acidified glass

Acid-matted glass is commonly referred to as acid-matted glass (see acid-matted, acid-etched, acid-etched satin or translucent glass).

Ecological Glass

Glass 100% recyclable. The glass used by SEVASA consists of 20% recycled material and is 100% recyclable.

Extraclear glass (glass)

Float glass with low iron oxide content substantially improves its light transmission coefficient and avoids the green tint of standard glass, accentuating its luminous clarity and pure transparency.

Float glass

Glass sheet manufactured by floating molten glass on a layer of molten tin. It has a uniform thickness and a very flat surface, making it the most commonly used glass in construction. It is also called flat glass, however not all flat glass is manufactured by floatation.

Laminated Glass

It is obtained by joining several single sheets by means of interposed sheets of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), which is a plastic material with very good qualities of adhesion, elasticity, transparency and resistance. The most outstanding characteristic of laminated glass is its resistance to penetration, making it particularly suitable for uses with special requirements for safety and protection of people and goods. It also offers good optical qualities, improves acoustic attenuation and protects against ultraviolet radiation.

Tempered Glass

The thermal tempering process heats the glass to a temperature close to its softening temperature and then cools it abruptly by blowing cooler air at a controlled pressure onto its surface. In this way the surface of the glass contracts rapidly and is permanently subjected to compressive stresses, while the inside of the glass is permanently subjected to tensile stresses. The intensities of these stresses vary according to the intensity of the thermal gradient that was established at the time of cooling, so you can get tempered glass or simply thermosetting.

Tempered glass has a significant increase in mechanical strength, greater resistance to thermal shock and, in general, greater safety in use.

Translucent Glass

Transformed glass that allows the passage of light, filtering and shading it, allowing the diffused vision of shapes, protecting from prying eyes. Star product in architecture and interior design for the creation of luminous environments that appear more spacious.

SEVASA's acid-etched satin-finished glasses allow a large amount of light to pass through (more than 85% and 89%), delicately tinting it and creating a very luminous and more spacious atmosphere.

They are available in different opacities, finishes, technical performance and colors. Its vision through the glass makes it possible to appreciate the shapes of objects and people, providing a certain degree of intimacy in interior spaces. It is highly appreciated in the construction of architectural structures, both exterior and interior, as well as in the manufacture of furniture.
