Back painted glass, also known as “color coated glass,” is a type of glass painted on one side using a durable and opaque color paint. The paint layer is uniform and usually monochrome. Back painted glass is a unique use of glass that has grown in popularity in recent years. It is basically exactly what it sounds like- glass that has been painted on the backside. Back painted glass is clear float glass that has been painted on one side so that it is no longer semitransparent but instead a solid color.

The applications for back painted glass vary widely, and it is commonly used in both residential and commercial buildings. From kitchens, and bathrooms, to glass wall panels designs and custom bar tops. It delivers a sleek and fresh modern look, clean lines, and easy maintenance. Back painted glass is a beautiful design element to add a touch of luxury to your home, office, or retail space. 

The real benefit of back painted glass is the unlimited color pallet available for a broad possibility of applications. The painted backside helps marker colors stand out.
