WHAT IS DICHROIC GLASS?

Dichroic Glass is a multi layer coating placed on glass by using a highly technical vacuum deposition process. Quartz Crystal and Metal Oxides are Vaporized with an electron beam gun in an airless vacuum chamber and the vapor then floats upward and attaches then condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystal structure. The colors have as many as 30 layers of these materials yet the thickness of the total coating is approximately 35 millionths of an inch. The coating that is created is very similar to a gemstone and by careful control in thickness, different colors are obtained. Thus, all the coatings are created using the same exact materials. Originally created for the Aerospace industry, Dichroic Glass is now made available to the artist community who add it to their creations to add shimmer, depth and vibrant color.
