Care Instructions

General Description:

Plastic materials can generally be charged electrostatically and the plastic parts may draw dust.

Plexiglas (trade name) is chemically seen as a product made of polymethylmethacrylate with the abbreviation PMMA, which is also named acrylic glass.

Acrylic glass (Plexiglas®) as a material is incredibly resilient, however dropping your acrylic bag or sliding a hard item on the surface will probably cause cracking or scratches.

Therefore, we suggest that your bag should be treated like fine furniture.

However, because of the nature of the construction (no glue between parts), in case of cracks or scratches, the damaged part can be repaired or replaced, at a low cost.

Cleaning:

Dust may almost not adhere on the Plexiglas® surface. Dusty surfaces may be cleaned with water, with some added household dishwashing detergent, and a soft, non-fuzzing cloth or sponge. The surfaces may never be rubbed dry.

Benzoyl-free benzene (petroleum ether, light gas) may be used to clean tenacious, especially greasy stains. Plexiglas is very stress sensitive and may in no case be cleaned with alcohol or solvent. The use of alcohol, acetone, or benzenes cause the formation of Craquelée (= mesh-like net of cracks on the surface).

Mechanical cleaning systems, for example rotating brushed, wipers, etc, are not suitable for Plexiglas. The brushes or the wiper scratch the surface.

Product Care:

A pretreatment of the Plexiglas surface should not be done with color repellent substances.

The surfaces may not be rubbed with a dry cloth.

The regular application of “antistatic plastic cleaner and protectant (AKU)” may prolong the dust-repelling effect for a longer period of time.
