BEWARE OF CHEAP IMITATIONS
Beware of BBC
While imitation may be the
sincerest form of flattery, cheap ones are an insult. They may
look similar, but there are distinct differences.
Glass that is strengthened through the process of heating
and then cooling the surface rapidly is known as Tempered Glass. This
process creates surface comprehension and tensile strength that causes glass to
resist breakage, yet disintegrate into small pieces if a break occurs. Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files are tempered
and consistently test at 102% stronger than regular glass.
Hardened versus Non-Hardened
During the last phase of production, Genuine
Crystal Glass Nail Files are hardened increasing their mechanical firmness. Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files are hardened
improving their resistance to breakage.
Imitation manufacturers may add lead or other undesirable
additives or use chemicals during their manufacturing process files.
Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files are
Grit versus Bonded Grit
Epoxy is used to bond grit to the filing surface of
cheaper files. The grit can wear off. The filing surface on Genuine Crystal Glass
Nail files are acid-etched right into the surface. That is why Genuine
Crystal Glass Nail Files are guaranteed to never wear out or wear down.
Imitation colored file handles easily scratch. The colour will come off
when it comes in contact with water. The colour also fades.
The handles on Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files
have a matte finish that never wears off or fades.
Glass Process versus Sheet Glass Process
Sheet Glass Process produces a lower
quality glass than glass produced using the Float Glass Process. Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files are produced
using the Float Glass Process. This is the same process used to make fine
wine glasses and expensive crystal items.
Imitation files are thicker. The Float Glass Process used to produce
Genuine Crystal Glass Nail Files controls the thickness of the files.
Like a fine wine glass, once you hold a Genuine Crystal Glass
Nail File in your hand, you’ll recognise the difference immediately!
