The quality requirements of silvered annealed monolithic clear and tinted flat glass mirrors up to a certain thickness are also discussed. The mirrors are intended to be used indoors for mirror glazing, for components of decorative accessories or for similar uses. The mirrors are not intended for use in environments where high humidity or airborne corrosion promoters, or both, are consistently present (such as swimming pool areas, ocean-going vessels, chemical laboratories and other corrosive environments). The classification of mirrors are according to the following properties: grades, cut size, stock sheet, lehr end, select quality, glazing quality, color (clear or tinted), and thickness. Different test methods shall be performed in order to determine or measure the following properties: reflectance, silver coating appearance, coating resistance, blemish (point and linear blemishes), dimension, and squareness.
