Glass is a great way to put a bit of colour into your kitchen, or a perfect replacement for tiles if you would like something a little unique.
Opticolour paint is chemically glued to the glass with high quality materials so that it will bond. This means that the glass will not be affected in anyway against heat, steam, or water.
They use special low ion glass for many of their colours which is the most optically clear option available at the moment. Some of the colours like mint white and mint cream they will use float glass which will have a slightly green tint to it.
The majority of coloured glass is toughened, this means that it is 4 times stronger than normal glass.
Glass is easy to clean and can be done with any glass cleaner or a wet and dry cloth.
Opticolour offer a 10 year written guarantee on paint discolouration and de-lamination (5years for painted glass) and they also give a 12 month guarantee against all manufacturing and installation faults.
