Matelac™ T - Temperable back-painted glass with a satin-finish

Acid-etched float glass covered on one side with a high-quality back-paint that must be heat-treated, making Matelac T a true enameled glass.

It can be immediately cut and tempered by fabricators at their facilities, simplifying the production process resulting in faster response to market needs.
