Translucent, Transparent, or Opaque?
These three terms come up fairly often. Explained as follows:
Translucent: This means that light will show through, however it is dense enough that you cannot see through it. e.g. Sandblast film on a window.
Transparent: A window is transparent! It allow objects, people, etc to be seen through it with definition. The colour of transparency can be altered with a film such as window tint.
Opaque: This is not a see through material and will essentially block light and is therefore the opposite to transparent.
