Whether you are elevating your retail display or using one of our custom fabricated acrylic products to showcase your prized collection, it’s important to understand how to properly care for this versatile material. Acrylic is a phenomenally strong, clear plastic that can last and be used for years if treated right. Listed below are some helpful tips to keep your acrylic products stunning and brilliant.
For long-lasting use of your acrylic products, do not place anything hot directly on their surfaces. Anything like tea kettles, pots and pans, curling or flat irons or the like, if placed directly onto any acrylic product such as a desk, table, tray, shelf, etc., can cause unwanted warping and discoloration.
Acrylic, while sturdy, is a soft material, meaning prone to scratching. The good news it is relatively low-maintenance to clean. It is best to avoid scouring compounds or chemical cleaners with ammonia or any glass cleaners when caring for your acrylic products.
Part of acrylic’s appeal is the minimal upkeep it needs. It can be easily scratched by flecks of dirt and fine abrasive particles lodged in the cloth used to clean other things. Stick with a new, fresh cloth to wipe your treasures down to avoid unpleasant scratches and scuffs.
