Uses of GLACE

We can apply alcohol to GLACE to get different results, this way we can get several effects like make completely transparent
workpieces or polish the outside to eliminate rough surfaces and achieve a pearlescent effect. In addition, due to the adherence in
between layers the piece increases its structural strength forming a substantial block and getting strong water tightness.

In the following video you can see how 96º alcohol is applied to a piece with a single perimeter, to achieve its greatest transparency.

It is done in two steps, first internal part and let dry and finally the external part and let it rest again.

When alcohol evaporates completely, Smartfil Glace returns to its natural state and gains in strength and endurance.
