HANDLING

  • Cotton gloves should be worn to minimize fingerprints and other particles.
  • Acrylic sheets are covered with a protective white poly film on each surface. This film prevents scratching during handling and cutting and should be left in place on the sheet as long as possible. To remove the film, start at one corner or side and roll the film on to a scrap cardboard core or on to itself. The film should never be exposed to excessive sunlight or outdoor conditions for extended periods of time.

CUTTING

  • Place the acrylic sheet on a clean, dust free work area.
  • Cover the work table with a soft, clean, lint free felt.
  • Use a Multi-Material Cutter “scribe & break” method to cut the acrylic sheet.

CLEANING

  • Use an acrylic cleaner and a clean damp cleaning cloth. Apply only light pressure, rinse with clean water, or a cleaner designed specifically for acrylic, and dry by blotting with a clean, damp cloth or chamois.
  • Do not use dry or gritty cloths, they may cause surface scratches and create a static electric charge on the surface.
  • Do not use glass cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, or lacquer to clean acrylic.
