Re: Polishing Lexan or Plexiglass

There is a polishing system formulated for motorcycle windshields,
that I've found works very, very well on all clear plastics and
fiberglass/gell coats . it is made by
"novus Inc. Minneapolis, MN. 55438" toll free # for nearest dist. is
It comes in a three stage system starting from a #3 coarse (pc-32), used
for deep scratches (coarse not recommended for polycarbonate), to a #2
(pc-22) and then to a #1 cleaner/static
remover (pc-12). It is a very simple rub on, wipe off product that
simply amazed me the first time i used it.
Hope it helps,
