30/10/17 - The acid-etched glass is decorflou®

DecorFlou® has always been “the” high-end acid-etched glass on the market, showing its top quality anti-fingerprint satin finish on the surfaces of the DecorFlou® Classic and BiFlou collections. A matt surface whilst flooded with light, versatile and easy to maintain.

The peculiar texture of DecorFlou® surfaces, featuring a soft touch and a consistent finish, gives the product the remarkable quality to avoid the retention of stains or fingerprints, making it easy to clean and preventing the formation of smudges. Output of a controlled chemical process, acid-etching does not change its appearance or discolor over time.


DecorFlou® is the acid-etched glass par excellence, that separates without totally filtering the view but allowing light to be transmitted almost unchanged from one space to the other. When it comes to wall cladding, the acid-etching finish gives depth and three-dimensionality to lacquered surfaces, otherwise flat and subject to dirt.


The qualitative and aesthetic characteristics of the acid-etched surface of DecorFlou® Classic double in the DecorFlou® BiFlou version, in which the acid-etching on both surfaces gives glass additional brightness and elegance when used in transparency*.

Always looking for unrivaled solutions, OmniDecor supplements the classic range of acid-etched float glass with other substrates and colors, expressed in the Mirror, Reflecting and Gold collections.

* the BiFlou version is not supposed to be lacquered, due to the satin finish on both sides.
