Madras® quality starts with the glass.
A plate of Madras® is basically a plate of float glass, which is obtained by pouring molten glass onto a bath of molten tin. This process delivers a plate of glass with both sides perfectly flat, making it suitable for precision work. Etching is then used to modify one/two side/s of the glass but without altering the plate’s strength characteristics.
