Mirror raw materials What are mirrors composed off?

Silica, which can be mined or refined from sand, is used to make glass. For the production of high-quality scientific grade mirrors a few other types of glass are used. These types of glass usually contain some other chemical components to make the glass stronger or make it resistant to certain extreme environmental conditions.

Mirror Manufacturing How Mirrors are Made?

Today, the mirror substrate is first shaped, then polished and cleaned, and finally covered. The method of making mirrors is very simple. Mirrors are made by applying a reflective coating to a glass sheets. Glass is a major mirror component due to its transparency, ease to fabrication, rigidity, hardness, and ability to take a smooth finish but it is not very good material for reflection

The History of Mirror: Through A Glass, Darkly

Early glass mirrors were made of glass tiles cut from blown glass forms—thus always slightly curved, and always slightly colored, as the chemistry of clear glass manufacture remained unknown. These glass tiles were then affixed over still-hot, carefully sized, cast lead forms, with a thin layer of polished metal sheeting between the two. It was a belabored and imprecise process, resulting in
