Cleaning Acrylic and Abrasion Resistant Acrylic Sheet

Acrylic Sheet

Wash the acrylic sheet with a mild soap or detergent and plenty of lukewarm water. Use a clean soft cloth, applying only light pressure. Rinse with clear water and dry by blotting with a damp cloth or chamois. Grease, oil, or tar may be removed with a good grade of hexane, aliphatic naphtha, or kerosene. These solvents may be obtained at a paint or hardware store and should be used in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations. Any oily film left behind by solvents should be removed immediately by washing.

Static electricity can attract dust to acrylic sheet. To reduce it, use an anti-static cleaner which is available from your dealer. Or consider using a de-ionizer air gun.

DO NOT USE: Window cleaning sprays, kitchen cleansers, gasoline, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, or lacquer thinners.

Abrasion Resistant Acrylic

A liquid detergent and water solution is recommended to clean Abrasion Resistant Acrylic Sheet. However, the following brand-name cleaners have been tested and found to work well on the coated surface. Use care when cleaning since some of these cleaners may attack the uncoated sides and edges of the sheet.

Approved cleaners:

  • Fantastik household cleaner
  • Formula 409 household cleaner
  • Mr. Clean household cleaner
  • Glass Plus cleaner
  • Top Job household cleaner
