How Do I Clean Acrylic Finish Cabinetry?

Regular Care and Handling

• Leave protective film in place until the project is complete

• Do not store panels outside

• Do not store or transport panels in direct sunlight

• Avoid sliding the panels on the outer surface

• An Acrylic Polishing Kit is recommended

The high gloss surface on our acrylic doors becomes more scratch resistant over the first few days after the protective film has been removed. This process can be accelerated by lightly polishing the surface immediately after the protective film is removed using Ultra-Gloss Superpolish + DGS, Novus 1 Polish, or Plexus Plastic Cleaner with a clean micro-fiber cloth.



Best results will be achieved using wet micro-fiber cloths or chamois with mild soap and water. Never dry wipe the acrylic finish. Applying Ultra-Gloss Superpolish + DGS, Novus 1 Polish, or Plexus Plastic Cleaner on a weekly basis will maintain the acrylic finish in an optimum condition.

Adhesive may be present near the edgebanding on the face of acrylic components. It can be easily and safely removed with mineral spirits and a chamois, mircro-fiber or very soft cloth. ONLY USE MINERAL SPIRITS ON ACRYLIC PRODUCTS. It will damage thermofoil products.

Avoid harsh household cleaners and abrasives. Always check the active ingredients of your cleaners to be sure there are no potentially harmful chemicals. Do not use acetone, chloroform, benzene, ammonia, thinners, caustic soda, toluene, xylene, dichloromethane, amylacetate, glacial acetate acid, butyl alcohol, butyl acetate, cellusolve, cresols/phenols, ethylacetate, chlorinated solvents, halogenated solvents, methyl alcohol, methyl ethyl keytone.
