The requirements of PLEXIGLASS polishing
Plexiglass or PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) is a solid, aesthetic and perfectly transparent material.
The polishing of Plexiglass is a technical polishing, simplified by the use of MERARD buffing mops and compounds.
The polishing of Plexiglass leads to a slight melting of the polymer on the surface, allowing the uniformity of the material and thus, to give back all its brightness to the piece.
When Plexiglas is worked, cut, milled… it can be marked with scratches or become opaque.
These scratches and whitish areas are unsightly and are a real inconvenience.
The composition of the polishing compound and the regularity of the buffing mop will be key elements to obtain the desired surface finish and the level of productivity expected by the customer, depending on the process in place: manual polishing or robotized polishing.
Polishing plexiglass parts results in a slight melting of the material on the surface.
