  • First Surface Mirror

    First surface mirrors have an aluminum mirror coating on the face of the glass that maximizes the amount of light reflected, minimizes distortion, and prevents a double image, also known as 'ghosting.' The enhanced aluminum mirror coating is optimized for the visible spectrum. A dielectric overcoat prevents scratching and oxidation.
