Austin Thin Films Dichromagic Glass

Austin Thin Films has closed its doors.  When this is gone, it is gone!
CBS is still making Dichroic Glass - click here.

Dichroic is defined in the dictionary as "The property of a surface of reflecting light of one color and transmitting light of other colors." Transmitted colors are what you see when you would look through a clear piece of DichroMagic glass. Reflected colors are the colors you see when you hold the glass in front of you, and will be opposite color of the reflected.

Dichroic coatings are produced by vacuum depositing multiple thin layers of exotic materials onto a glass substrate. This creates an optical filter that can selectively reflect and transmit wavelengths of light. The proprietary evaporants are vaporized in a crucible located in the bottom of the vacuum chamber, by a high voltage electron beam onto the rotating glass above. The glass is also rotated in the chamber through this vaporization process in order to deposit uniform coatings on the glass. Due to the difficult coating process there can be slight differences in color throughout the sheet, or from one sheet to the next.


DichroicMagic 90 COE Jeweler's Scrap Glass


Dichro is applied to the glass after it is made.  The glass is help in place with clips while the dichro is applied.
You may see some blank spots on some pieces where the clip was on the glass.
