First surface mirrors (also known as front surface mirrors) are made for applications requiring a strict reflection without a ghosting effect as seen with a second surface mirror – where a faint secondary reflection could be observed, coming from the front surface of the glass. Telescopes, projection televisions, and periscopes use this type of mirror.
We can immediately cut and ship any size first surface mirror up to 96″ x 72″. Our 1μ optical grade glass mirrors are ideal for high precision applications such as lasers, optical imaging/scanning, projection, high speed photography, binocular mounts, and military flight simulators. Acrylic first surface mirrors are well-suited for hobby projects, signage, toys, optical illusions, and stage lighting.
