The luster effect is achieved by the application of an organ metallic compound on glass obtaining a mirror effect which is coloured transparent, making one more an economic alternative to other similar effects made by electro physical metallic particle deposition. They can be combined with the standard colours to obtain new glass effects for construction, furniture, etc.
The application of non slip enamels, for the decoration of the flat glass, has numerous possibilities for its use.
