What are polished edges?
When we cut an acrylic sheet to size, the saw blade produces a matte finish on the edges of the panel. We use a technique called diamond polsihing to polish the edges to a bright, smooth and glossy finish.
Our diamond edge-polishing machine polishes the edge of acrylic by running a rotating, diamond tipped wheel along the edge of the material.
How do I clean acrylic?
- Blow or lightly brush away any dust and loose dirt from the surface of the acrylic
- Using a mild solution of lukewarm water and washing up liquid clean the surface of more resistant dirt and grime.
- Rinse with clean water.
- Blot dry with a microfibre cloth to prevent water spotting.
