Frosted and decorative Etch type films can transform an otherwise plain piece of glass into an attractive display. The film simulates Sandblasted or Etched Glass and is available in a variety of densities. Llumar NRM PS2 Frosted window film is very versatile film, available in a variety of sizes ranging from 36”, 48”, 60” and 72”. It has a frosted matte type finish. FTS Sandblast is one of the lighter films that look just like regular sandblasted glass. Frosted Glass is more of a medium-cut sandblast finish that has a very slight sparkle to it. Frosted Sparkle and Frosted Crystal have a ‘deeper-cut’ look with a little more sparkle. Frosted Gold and Frosted Blue have the same effect with the option of adding the color. These can be used in combination to provide a nice design pattern with a tone-on-tone effect. Other popular films include Rice Paper, Sagano, Rippled Water and Glue Chip.

Frosted and Sandblast films are very effective for letting a lot of natural light into an interior space while still providing privacy. The privacy level is determined by how much of the design is Frosted or clear.

How is the Design Created?

At times a very specific pattern or design is required and the Architect, Interior Designer, or homeowner provides the artwork. (Image of plan drawing to be provided by Meagan) This may need to be modified to fit the actual dimensions of the glass on site. Scaled drawings are then developed for the client’s approval. These can be faxed or emailed. (Our computer sketch as supplied by Meagan)

We create our designs using Omega 2.1.0 software on PC based computers. We are able to import vector type files in ai. (Adobe Illustrator), eps. (Encapsulated Post Script) and pdf. Occasionally even these files will not import properly. If files can’t be sent in these formats, the logo or image may have to be re-created. We can also scan camera-ready artwork. Once the image is created and sized properly, it is sent to the plotter that will cut the film to the actual size. (Picture of plotter cutting) Typically the cut portions of the film are covered with a transfer sheet or premask. This will hold the cut pieces in place during the installation process.
The image is input into the computer and the first film for cutting is sent to the plotter.
The pressure and speed are set on the plotter. Each film requires a specified amount of pressure. The film is loaded and aligned for cutting. Each film type is cut separately then premasked as required.
The film is then taken to the job site and installed. After the installation, the premask is removed along with the cut portions of film that should be clear.
By using a host frosted and vinyl types, from transparent, translucent to completely opaque, we can create a design or pattern that will suit your space and décor.
LUMIGRAF has a wide variety of decorative plastics. This is not a self-adhesive product, and is typically suspended between two layers of glass or lexan. There are a number of applications for this particular product line. Click here to checkout the design potential.
 
TIPS

If the design has sharp points or corners, care should be taken when cleaning. Clean away from the points as opposed to wiping your cloth directly into a point. This will minimize the cloth catching a sharp point and causing it to snag on the cloth. Cleaning is easy with a soft cloth or paper towel, with a mild cleaning solution. Typical household window cleaners are fine.
