Definitions for "Acid Etching"
See ENGRAVING
A process used in decorative glass where hydrofluoric acid is applied to the surface of the glass. Where the acid contacts the glass surface, the glass becomes frosted with a matte finish (similar to the effect caused by a sandblasting process). Patterns can be applied using special wax coatings on the glass. Where the glass is coated with wax, no corrosion of the surface will take place.
A process, manly used for glass decoration, where the glass surface is treated with hydrofluoric acid. Acid-etched glass has a distinctive, uniformly smooth and satin-like appearance.
A method of preparing concrete floors for painting using a dilute acid solution to clean and improve the surface texture.
The preparation of the cavity surfaces with a mild acid for bonding.
Process of applying a solution of hydrochloric or muriatic acid and water to the exposed surface of Cast Stone in order to remove the cement film from the aggregates, achieving a fine-grained finish which simulates natural cut stone.
Acid applied to the underside of a veneer, porcelain onlay, Microkur jacket or Dicor crown, to make microscopic indentations in order to make the restoration adhere to the natural tooth in a more stable manner.
A technique that uniformly thins CCDs to approximately 10 ┬Ám so that an image can be focused on the back of the parallel register (where there is no gate structure). See back-illuminated CCD.
