Glass Coating


 

We have a glass ceramic that we want to apply a silver coating to. The composition of the glass is 53% SiO2, 38% AL2O3 and 3.6% CaO. There are trace of K2O, Fe2O3 and TiO2. Any suggestions as to what one should use for etching, initiating and coating this material.

If your coating is silver and you want it to resemble plating, look at vacuum coating. If it's a medical coating that merely contains silver as a biocide then you can use an adhesion promoter and get excellent adhesion of organic coatings to glass.
