    It is easy to buff the edge of an acrylic sheet into a crystal clear edge, just as clear as the surface of the sheet.

    First you need to prepare the edge by sanding all of the saw marks from the surface of the edge.

    This can be done with a 100 grit paper, a lower grit paper is needed if the edge is really rough. After using a 100 grit paper move to a 300 grit then to a 400 to 600 grit.

    Wet/dry sand paper works best, use a small amount of water when sanding.
    Make sure that all of the saw marks are removed from the edge and the edge is smooth and clean.

    Next, use a buffing wheel on the edge. We offer buffing wheels in 5" to 10" diameters, 50 ply wheels.

    Our 50 ply are approx. 3/4" wide, this makes the polishing job easier and faster.

    If you have a little buffing to do, use our 5" wheel, if you have a lot of buffing, use a 8" or 10" 50 ply wheel.

    Our cloth buffing wheels are the ideal choice for buffing all types of acrylic sheet, 1/16" to 2" thick. Our wheels are manufactured to the highest standards, the are specifically manufactured for acrylic sheet and they will produce excellent results. It is usually a good idea to get a larger wheel, they last longer and polish better. When you are using our wheels with an electric drill, and you are doing a small amount of buffing, you should consider the 5" to 6" dia. wheels, they are easier to work with. If you have a lot of buffing to do and are using our Baldor buffer, try using our 8" wheels or larger. You need to make sure that you have enough clearance between the buffing shaft and the top of the table the buffer rests on, an 8" dia. wheel is recommended.. Some people like our spiral sewn wheels. Since the wheel is sewn and not loose it is a much stiffer wheel. Be careful when using a spiral sewn wheel so that you do not burn the sheet.
