A mirror coating is 50 to 100 nanometers thick - about 600 times thinner than a human hair. Protect it from scratching and tarnishing with a tested paint or lacquer.
- Untested paints and lacquers can contain chemicals that tarnish the mirror coating over time.
- Mirror backing paint is brittle and does not bend or peel when you cut the glass.
