How to Maintain Acrylic Sheet?

Acrylic maintenance is an important link after acrylic is processed into finished products, such as acrylic furniture. We certainly hope that a product can be used longer, so in order to extend its life, please treat it carefully.

There are the following points, I hope everyone will pay attention:

  1. Acrylic will be deformed when heated at about 70 degrees, and it will soften when heated to more than 100 degrees, so it should not be applied to places above 100 degrees.
  2. Acrylic polishing, if it is a small scratch, you can directly wipe it with toilet paper or a rag with a little toothpaste. If it is a large scratch, I personally mind using sandpaper to polish the acrylic. If you use sandpaper to polish the product, the product will be scrapped. , The entire surface is scratched, it will be worse.
  3. Acrylic should be scrubbed with a soft cloth, never use any cleaning agent containing granular objects, and do not use various chemical bath agents to scrub.
  4. Acrylic is easy to crack, so pay attention to the surface protection when taking and placing it.
  5. Acrylic has a large thermal expansion coefficient, so temperature changes should be taken into account when installing or fixing, leaving room for expansion and contraction.
  6. If the acrylic product is not damaged, you can use IPS adhesive glue/adhesive methylene chloride type adhesive or a quick-drying agent to connect it.
  7. If you want acrylic products to be bright and beautiful, you can use liquid polishing wax and wipe it with a soft cloth.
