Patterned Glass

Cast and rolled glass is called patterned glass (cast glass), which is produced utilising the rolling process, and is predominantly used indoors. Unlike float glass patterned glass is not transparent and flat, but translucent, and has a more or less structured surface, which stems from  the production process, whereas the liquid glass is led  at 1200 ° C through structured rollers, whose pattern then reflects in the glass. This way a more or less transparent, but always a translucent glass is manufactured. Depending on the type of roller it is possible to create waves, ribs, prisms and other stamping molds in the glass surface, which cause light scattering, wherein the density of the patterns produce different visibility factors. Accordingly, it is put to use where light should get inside, but privacy is desired, such as in bathrooms, shower cubicles, doors, parapets, or even as a screen within offices. Patterned glass can be coated in various ways and refined same as float glass(eg Tempered, Safety, enameling).
