Plexi-Care: Keeping your pieces sparkling.
Plexi-Craft pieces are built by our team to last a lifetime – we sometimes have clients from fifty years ago report on how great our pieces can still look! The Acrylic we use is of such a high quality and our craftsmanship is so expert that the pieces are guaranteed never to fade or yellow in their clarity.
As with any furniture, Plexi-Craft pieces require maintenance to keep them in tip top shape. Furniture is furniture after all and every once in a while pieces might accidentally get scratched. The good news is that scratches in Plexi-Craft products can easily be removed! For small scratches we recommend using Novus-Plastic Cleaner. This cleaner bonds with damaged Acrylic and fuses pieces together- sort of a high end Acrylic filler. For the best method to apply Novus, we recommend watching this informative video from Novus themselves: Click the picture to view:
Some further hints at keeping your Plexi-Craft pieces glistening like gemstones:
Do Not Use: Window cleaning fluids, scouring compounds, gritty cloths, or strong solvents such as alcohol, ammonia, acetone, carbon tetrachloride, etc.
Polishing: Use a good polish for acrylics, such as Novus 1, available directly from Amazon. It provides a high shine and does not show finger marks. Novus 1 is also a static electricity remover. This cuts down on the dust that can be attracted to acrylic.
Scratch Removal: Like a beautiful wood or fine silver, this material can be scratched. But unlike most other materials, a scratch on this surface can be removed. Minor surface scratches can be visibly removed with Novus 2 available here. For heavier scratches use Novus 3 with the Novus 2.
Protection: Just like on fine wood and metal, the surface of your new acrylic piece must be protected from scratches and harmful agents. Use felt or rubber on the bottom of items that may scratch the surface and use drink coasters to prevent potential clouding by spilled beverages and spirits.
We want you to get years of enjoyment from your new acrylic furniture. If you have any questions, please contact us directly. Novus 1, 2, and 3 are available for purchase from Amazon here.
