What is a Mirror?

A mirror is a panel of glass with a reflective layer applied to the reverse side of the glass. This reflective covering is protected by a coat of paint. Turn the panel over and look through the glass into the reflective surface.

Inexpensive Mirrors


The reflective coating is typically a blend of copper and silver. The copper tarnishes over time which is when you see black corrosion that develops the mirror. This is found in lower-grade inexpensive mirrors. This is not a problem at first but arises over time. Hence, the life expectancy of a cheap mirror will only be around 12 to 24 months. This is also dependent on a mirror’s setting. In a high humidity setting or coast climate, the life of the mirror could be diminished to months.
