How does the protective mirror backing perform?
The backing offers many benefits including
- A smooth and glossy feel, excellent for sliding sheets during fabrication
- A thicker layer of protective backing that prevents mars and scratching from being seen on the mirrors surface
- Superior adhesion, even in hot and humid applications
The mirror backing has gone through intensive testing, including the hot-water soak test (similar to the Boil Test for quality assurance). The results from our hot-water soak test, reveal that this reformulated mirror backing does indeed have superior adhesion to the acrylic mirror making it humidity and corrosion resistant. After 10 days in a climate of 140 degree F, ACRYLITE® Reflections mirror backing outperforms our domestic competitor material. Similar results were shown during the salt-water soak test and corrosion test.
Full size sheets (49”x97”) may contain backing material overspray on the edge of the acrylic. This does not impact the performance of the sheet.
