Tips on How to Clean Acrylic and Plexiglass

Your plastic products, such as Acrylic Name Plate Holders, Sign Holders, and Poster Holders, can endure an infinite amount of time with the right maintenance.  You will receive a fantastic return on your investment if you keep them clean.  But be cautious—some everyday cleaners and techniques that you would THINK would work might really cause more harm than good.  Nix the Windex and try the following instead.

Start with the basics. A simple solution of warm water, mild soap, and a gentle wipe with a soft cloth works wonders.  Rinse your glasses well, then blot dry with a moist cloth or chamois to prevent any remaining spots or marks that might obstruct clear vision.  Make sure to stay away from those abrasives, window cleaning sprays, and/or kitchen cleansers.  Despite how sturdy the sheet may seem, the composition of acrylic is more delicate than you may think.and cleaners with industrial and domestic strength that appear harmless might be harmful.  Aside from leaving scratches and weakening the sheet's structure, other solvents like acetone, alcohol, carbon tetrachloride, and lacquer thinner can also cause the sheet to split. 

This is where surface gloss can be improved with specially blended plastic polishes.  For instance, Novus Plastic Polishes leave a glossy finish without using any abrasives or harsh chemicals.  Your Acrylic Displays and the promotional materials they are intended to display will both remain well-buffed and pristine when applied with a Polish Mate Polishing Cloth.  No dimming, no foggy mirror. Additionally, dust-attracting static is eliminated using non-abrasive Polish Mate Polishing Cloths.

Of course, no matter how careful you are, scratches might still happen.  The Novus 2 Fine Scratch Remover should be used in that case.or Novus 3 Heavy Scratch Remover for more severe abrasions. These solutions designed specifically for acrylic have healing qualities that make them incredibly effective at removing scratches and abrasions.

Keeping your acrylic display products neat and tidy is essential for conveying a professional image and presentation.  Your acrylic display goods can maintain their like-new appearance—free of haze, discoloration, fading, fingerprints, residue, and scratch marks—with a straightforward, cautious, and regular cleaning regimen and the appropriate polishes, scratch removers, and polishing cloths!
