Poly-carbonate / Acrylic Panels
For normal cleaning, first rinse the surface with clean water to remove any
particles of dust or other abrasive materials. Sponge the plastic gently with warm
water and a mild, nonabrasive soap or a solution of ammonia and water. Rinse
thoroughly with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, the
polycarbonate can be polished with a good wax polish applied with a clean, soft
flannel pad.
Do not use benzene, acetone, denatured alcohol, or gasoline. These solvents
soften the surface of the plastic and may cause damage. Also avoid using glass
cleaning compounds, abrasive cleaners, and hard instruments. Make sure
cleaning materials are free of grit and other foreign materials.

components following the manufacturer’s instructions. In humid atmospheres near
salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax evenly three
months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.
