If you’ve bought acrylic which has since started to lose its shine, read our simple steps to learn how to polish your plastic back to a gleam.

You can restore the glossy look of your acrylic by flame polishing thin sheets of acrylic (4mm thick and under) and sanding/buffing thicker acrylic sheets. We have information explaining these methods here.
