Dicro Slide™ is a special paper which has been coated with the same high quality Dichroic coating as Dichroic glass. The result is a layer of Dichroic strong enough to be transferred to glass or ceramics. The versatility of Dicro Slide™ makes design possibilities unlimited. It offers something new and exciting to art glass.
Dicro Slide™ has no COE so it works well with most glass. It can be cut with scissors, paper punches or craft knives. It fires easily to 815°C or higher. It begins bonding with glass at about 600°C, and flows with glass as it moves or slumps.
1. Dicro Slide™ is compatible with most COE glass, and has been used successfully on ceramics and porcelain.
2. It is recommended that you use distilled water. Minerals in tap water may react with the dichroic layer, discolouring or causing damage to it.
3. Dicro Slide™ works well uncapped, but like all genuine Dichroic, does not fuse to itself or against other metals. It can be fused against Dichroic glass, Iridized glass or other glass with a metallic layer if capped.
4. Store Dicro Slide™ so the coated side of the dichroic paper is facing away from other coated dichroic paper surfaces.
