OPACI-COAT-300® vs. Ceramic Frit Ball Drop Test – ICD High Performance Coatings + Chemistries

ICD High Performance Coatings + Chemistries

This video shows various ball drops on coated and uncoated 6mm tempered glass.

Here is the series of samples tested:

  1. Uncoated – See the drop device continually getting raised each time the glass does not break
  2. OPACI-COAT-300® Coated – See a large increase in height needed to break the glass 3. Ceramic Frit Coated – See the much lower height necessary to break the glass
