Stopsol classic clear glass
So I am thinking about making my first MagicMirror and am currently trying to find a place to purchase a two-sided mirror. One glazier I contacted told me that they could sell me glass called “Stopsol classic clear”, however I am not sure if that is suitable for the magic mirror project. I am not a native speaker and I don’t know much about glass, so I was hoping that maybe someone from this forum could tell me, if this glass is suitable.
I read the manual and I think the “Tv” column stands for light transmission, in that case the glass would not be suitable, I think. I read from some other posts, that the transmission should stay between 12-20%.
Any help is appreciated!
@AwesomeZebra The light transmission can go up to 40% if the room/area is really bright/daylight bright.
But yes, the optimal is 12-20% for a normal room.
But looking at the classic clear specs I think the reflection numbers are the big negative, a normal mirror has about 80%+ in light reflection, 28/36% is a bit to low in my opinion.
Hmm, weird. I figured that if it’s not transmitting, it’s reflecting. Now that I think about it, there’s also absorbing of the light. I suppose it’s not suitable then, thank you very much for the input!
