CBS Coatings LogoCBS produces Dichroic glass on a variety of glass types. Colors are consistent and uniform. Low color distortion properties at high temperatures make their products the first choice of the most demanding professionals and ideal for novices as well. CBS Dichroic Coatings are specifically designed to be hot worked.

Dichroic Glass is a multi layer coating placed on glass by using a highly technical vacuum deposition process. Quartz Crystal and Metal Oxides are Vaporized with an electron beam gun in an airless vacuum chamber and the vapor then floats upward and attaches then condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystal structure. Colors have as many as 30 layers of these materials yet the thickness of the total coating is approximately 35 millionths of an inch. The coating that is created is very similar to a gemstone and by careful control in thickness, different colors are obtained.
