Cold-Sprayed Glass Mosaic: Initially, flat glass is meticulously cut into predetermined shapes or sizes, and the cut edges are kiln-fired to create curved edges. After selection, suitable pieces are arranged within a specialized mold, which is then transferred to a spray room. In this room, a color or pattern coating is applied to the central side, followed by a layer of white coating after the initial coat has dried. Upon subsequent drying, adhesives or mesh may be attached to either the front or back surfaces.
Hot-Melt Glass Mosaic: Differing from the cold-spray method, hot-melt glass mosaic involves a more intricate production procedure, as outlined below:
Initially, flat glass of a specific thickness is cut into blocks of designated shapes and areas.
One side of the product is imprinted with color glaze or intricate patterns.
Following the drying process, an additional layer of white glaze is applied, primarily to prevent glaze erosion and enhance glaze particle thickness.
After drying, the glass is manually or mechanically cut into mosaic blocks of defined shapes and sizes.
Mosaic blocks, whether arranged by hand or through automated means, are positioned on a heat-resistant, non-deformable ceramic pad coated with silicate binder. The glass undergoes kiln melting and fusion, with edges transforming into curved forms before the kiln's balance and mixture.
Post-kiln, the product can be cooled through a pipeline or placed onto a dedicated cooling rack.
Following cooling, workers grade and sort the products, placing approved ones into specified molds while applying front iron paper and rear mesh.
Ultimately, after additional drying, the product can be packaged and presented as a final product.
