As usual on the internet: Watch out for Scammers/Fakers
Gelasan - Regular
This type of gelasan has been produced based on regular glass . Although no silicon (siliciumcarbide) addition used, this gelasan can be high quality gelasan. These gelasan are typically fresh coloured.
Gelasan - Silicon (based on siliciumcarbide)
This type of gelasan is based on Siliciumcarbide or contains a mix of regular glass and a high percentage of siliciumcarbide. Some gelasans like SheKew Cap Gajah are 100% made of silicon without any glassadditions. The effect of a high percentage of silicon gives the gelasan it´s typical colour - a haze of dark/grey. By using siliconcarbide additions the gelasan seems more resistant to humidity (probably the effect of using other glue compositions). Click

Gelasan - Custom
This type of gelasan are mostly handcrafted custom made for personal use. Special cotton in combination with special alloys give these gelasan a personal touch. A famous, very wanted cotton is "Bison" made by "Ten Cate" from Holland. Some fanatical fighters buy the cottonthread in Holland and send it to Indonesia to give the cotton a special glasstreatment.
Layangan - Custom
