A two-way mirror is a mirror where you can see through but that is also reflecting. The two-way mirror has a thin layer of foil on both sides of a clear, extruded acrylic sheet (Plexiglass®/pmma). The two-way mirror is light weight, rigid, practically unbreakable and barely knows any thickness tolerance. The mirror coating is very vulnerable. As such, one should not apply any kind of tape to the mirror’s surface, even if it’s temporary. Removing the tape will damage the coating.
Important: Two-way mirrors cannot be cut to size (neatly), therefore the mirror has to be laser-cut or milled to size. That is why a cut to size order has a longer delivery time (+/- 3 working days).
PyraSied is having 6 different mirror colours on stock in 3 and 5 mm with a gloss/mirror surface. You can order this material cut to size, per full sheet or you can compose your own mix-pallet with various colours.
The colours that are on stock are:
There is a difference between two-way mirrors and spy mirrors. Two-way mirror is a mirror with a very high light transmission and is therefore not suitable as a spy mirror. A spy mirror has a light transmission of 15%. For this application, we have special spy mirrors in silver on stock.
The two-way mirror is suitable for visual shielding, but is mainly used because it is having a very attractive appearance combined with striking effects. In fact, the material is very new and we think that we will see a lot of unexpected applications of this material. It is important to mention that the two-way foil is not water- and weather proof and cannot be used for outdoor applications.

These mirror sheets can be used in wet conditions and also (to a certain degree) outside. The mirror foil should be on the side which is the least exposed to the sun. The foil is not 100% UV-stable. It is developed for the inside-side of glass!
The adhesion of the foil is good, however not good enough to be cut with a circular sawing-machine. Cutting the sheet to size with a sawing machine will cause delamination of 1 to 2 mm foil at the edge. Milling and laser-cutting does not cause this problem.
Milling or laser-cutting. Sawing is not recommended.
