Start with the best edge quality
In many cases, you may not need secondary acrylic polishing if your supplier knows how to cut acrylic correctly.

Because we understand acrylic and know how to machine it properly we can supply you with cut acrylic which already has a smooth, clean-cut edge.
If you need acrylic work machined from clear material secondary polishing adds the final touch. Clear acrylic work can be greatly improved if you polish the cut edges.
How acrylic polishing works
There are two types of acrylic polishing machinery you can employ:
Diamond edge polishing
This involves the product to be polished being loaded into the machine, with the feed then guiding the product over a rotating diamond tipped cutter. This cutter shaves off a small amount of the material from the edge of the plastic, smoothing the surface to create a neat edge. Multiple sheets can be polished in 1 pass.
Maximum length is 800mm and any angle between 45 and 90 degrees.
This type of acrylic polishing uses a fine, high-temperature hydrogen-based flame which slightly melts the cut edges of your acrylic. Once flame polishing has been carried out your cut edges magically change from an opaque to a clear finish. This type of acrylic polishing works on all shapes and sizes of cut acrylic.
