If the linear object does not bend and deform, the imaging effect of the mirror is good.

To protect silver ions from reacting with moisture in the air and causing black spots on the black edge of the lens, a copper film is plated on the silver film. A layer of primer and topcoat on top of the copper film can strengthen the protection. This can prolong the service life of the mirror. And the mirror closing must not have the slightest crack.
