Glass mosaic is also known as glass brocade tile or glass mosaic tile.

It is a small size of colored decorative glass. The general sizes are 20 mm x 20 mm, 30 mm x 30 mm and 40 mm x 40 mm. The thickness is 4 - 6 mm. It is a small glassy mosaic material of various colors. The appearance is colorless transparent, tinted transparent, translucent, with gold and silver spots, patterns or stripes.

The front side is glossy smooth and delicate; the back side with rougher grooves to facilitate paste with mortar. The characteristics are: soft tone, simple, elegant, beautiful and generous, chemical stability, good cold and heat stability and other advantages. Moreover, there are the characteristics of no color change, no accumulation of dust, light weight capacity, firm bonding, etc. It is mostly used for indoor partial and balcony external decoration. Its compressive strength, tensile strength, blooming temperature, water resistance, acid resistance should be in line with national standards.

Glass mosaic series including laser powder glass mosaic, crystal glass mosaic, Venus glass mosaic, pearl glass mosaic, cloud glass mosaic, metal mosaic and other series.    

The sintering process of glass mosaic has fusion method and sintering method. Melting method is to quartz sand, limestone, feldspar, soda ash, colorants and emulsifiers as the main raw materials for the production, after high temperature melting with shaft calendering or plane calendering molding, and finally annealed from. Sintering method is made of waste glass, adhesives and other materials, after briquetting, drying, sintering and annealing process.
