Surface Treatment of PLEXIGLAS®
PLEXIGLAS® can be painted with conventional glass paint pens with excellent results. Special pencils are also suitable, e.g. All-Stabilo or chinagraph pencils. Solvent-based color pens are to be avoided.
Polishing with chemical substances like solvents and acids is not recommended, since it dissolves PLEXIGLAS® to a considerable depth or corrodes it. This usually provides a polish with optical distortions and involves the risk of stress cracking, on top of the other risks presented by using such substances.
