You can use any type of sander when sanding your pmma acrylic sheet. This approach will not only remove machining marks, but it will also create a matte finish on your acrylic sheet. Sand your acrylic like a piece of wood, use light pressure and keep the sander moving at all times. This will help remove any deep scratches or blemishes on your acrylic sheet. When you are done sanding, you can begin the buffing and polishing process.

Polishing wheels are the perfect way to achieve a nice clear finish on your acrylic pc pmma sheets after they have been sanded. Make sure you clamp the acrylic in place so that it doesn’t move when buffing. The finished quality of acrylic is dependent on the kind of compound you choose to use. A medium compound will result in a glossy finish. If you wish to achieve a more brilliant shine this can be accomplished by applying a fast cutting compound.
