Acid etched glass


Pulp Studio expands its proprietary DermaGlass collection with DermaAR, an acid etched, ultra-thin architectural material that is durable, lightweight and resilient for both exterior facades and interior applications. DermaAR, with a thickness of 1.3 mm is a low iron glass that is offered in sizes up to 58 inches x 118 inches. It is a tough, flexible, lightweight, scratch-resistant material which can be used with Pulp Studio’s Pintura, a water-based back-painted, or laminated with printed graphic interlayer. This makes it a resilient and versatile material for both architectural and elevator cab applications.

Using an ion-exchange process, the ultra-thin profile that DermaGlass and DermaAR offers designers multiple options for design applications such as bent glass column surrounds or customized, decorative shapes while addressing performance needs for surface strength. DermaAR, with an acid etched surface, offers a smooth, matte surface that minimizes glare. DermaGlass and DermaAR meet the following U.S. standards for indoor use.

  • CSPC 16 CFR 1201 (laminated)
  • ANSI Z97.1-2009 (laminated)
  • ANSI maximum impact Class A
