Etch All is another brand of etching cream used for personalizing glass, mirror, ceramic, slate, and marble objects in arts and crafts environments. In the previous post, I talked about the other popular brand called Armour Etch. Basically, these are the two most popular brands out for sale on the Internet and in most local hobby stores.
But, which is better? I don’t think one is really better than the other in terms of getting a more noticeable etch, but there are brands out there that have a higher amount of chemicals in them. These seem to be off brands, and they are know to etch the glass faster.
EtchAll does have a few benefits though. Their cream can be reused by wiping it back into the bottle after use, so it can be etched on multiple glasses. After some tests, I found out that other brands can be reused also, but others seem to get clumps after a while which doesn’t give a consistent etch. The Etchall cream, however, is a higher quality smooth product, even after multiple uses which creates consistent etches. So, in some cases, it can produce a more noticeable etching.
Ingredients & Chemical Information
My bottle states that it’s main hazardous chemical is Ammonium Bifluoride. The company, B&B Products, Inc. states in their MSDS that it has 27% of the chemical or 20% by weight, and has a pH of 5.2
