Hello everyone,

I must make a realization that this material is call'd indifferently, the plexi, the altuglass or acrylic
I'd like to have this
and lustrous polish, especially on the edges as in the trade.
Is there an easy way for this? to do at home, of course not immediately go to a specialist?

You need a variable speed orbital sander, a sheep and cream or paste polish:

(there are plenty.)

To do:
Following the recommendations of the manufacturer; but in general:
to spread on the surface with a soft cloth, then put the speed mini grinder, and hand-held tray to prevent it from turning, you put it and start polishing. As
as the polish dries, you accelerate the speed but note there is no need to go very fast.

Then a blow dry with a soft cloth: like new!

Good work

For a glossy and polished edges, use a "gambler." (Small gas bottle, with a button embedded plug after which the flame edges).

Please do not burn out your plexi. Try it out and try your hand on a piece. Pass the flame pretty quickly, in one continuous movement, do not stay fixed above the same spot if the plexi Cramer and become brown or blister, and you'll have to start
