Can anyone tell me how to remove minor scratches and scuffs from an acrylic finish? Thanks
Just DON'T use cyanocrylate on acrylic.
If it's a minor one, nail polish will work.
What is that??
you buff them out. There was a discussion somewhere on Tb about this. They recommended using a dremmel with a buffer kit.
Cyanocrylate is a very strong translucide instant glue that works fine to repair urethane and polyester finishes.
It fills the hole, gets hard very fast and then you can sand it flat to the original finish.
It makes some chemical reaction with acrylic and the finish sort of melts around the superglue that won't herden.
I got caught, so I can talk about it .
Thanks Jazz Ad - sorry that you got bit on that one!
