Lexan Window Polish

Is there anything to get scratches out of Lexan windows. Out logging equipment window are getting scratched pretty good and is getting hard to see out of when the sun hits it.
I was wondering how the Headlight polish would work on it.

you could always try a small spot with head light polish. there are some types of plastics that you cant use that on. not sure if lexan is one of them. there is also a type of polish made for motorcycle windshields that might work also. harley or s100 would probably be your best choices for that.

check out griots garage, meguiars or Adams polish <Adams is a sponsor of this forum>.
depending on how bad the haze / scratches are you may have to make MULTIPLE passes
and you likely will have to use increasingly finer grades of cut until all the scratches are
gone.

Novis makes 2 polishes for polycarbinate, the coarse will do for stuff in the shade and the fine requires skill to finish.

Some toothpaste is good, some not consistant.

If it is not coated, it can be finished with a flame polish after the fine Novis. Once agin practice first.

If you have not finished plastic it may be cheaper to get a sheet at the plastic supply house, a crosscut skillsaw blade and the specialty drill bit will work well.

Spray with dilute Dawn dishwashing detergent to kill the static electricity when the paper comes off, wash with a flag tipped brush, NEVER use anything with amonia in it and the only wax that seems to work is Protectal - $8 in the camper isle at Walmart.

The uncoated scratches very easy, the coated is close to acrylic. Acrylic will shatter the same as glass but in 1/8 in or thicker polycarbonate is UL listed as burglar resistant, it tears unless it is to old - seems about 10 years.
