Industrial plastic polishing

Plastic surfaces are a challenge for polishing compounds

Plastic materials have sensitive surfaces. That is why they have to be processed cautiously and with a low contact pressure. A certain abrasiveness is however required at the same time in order to obtain the desired surface finish. A balancing act that only succeeds with the right polishing process and high-performance polishing pastes. Gel coats, PMMA, epoxy or acrylic bring individual challenges with them depending on the application. These have to be taken into account for surface treatment.

Plastic polishes from Menzerna: polishing agents for any application case

PMMA for example is easy to apply to laminates. However, it tends to appear dull compared to coated surfaces. An approach for PMMA will only be successful through the development of a suitable polishing process and with the use of a high-performance polishing paste. White gel coat surfaces do not need a high gloss. Nevertheless, defects have to be polished out quickly and chalking or yellowing must be removed. This requires the highest abrasiveness. Menzerna polishing systems offer the right polish for every plastic product. For optimum results and an economical polishing process.

Polishing plastics: practical tips for a brilliant result

Excessive heating has to be prevented, otherwise the surface melts or burns. The use of plastic polishes with a higher grease content has a cooling effect. There is generally a risk with polishing pastes that excessive residues may be worked into the surface while polishing plastics. Precise roughing and short polishing times are of particular importance in order to avoid this.

Polishing various plastics in many different industries

Referring to plastics or composites can mean many different types of synthetic materials. They include conventional plastics, PMMA, acrylic, epoxy, carbon, gel coats, Plexiglas, polycarbonate and acetate. These types of plastics are used in a wide variety of industries. Carbon for example is often used for mounted parts in the automobile industry. Boats, motor homes and whirlpools are usually made of gel coat. What manufacturers in these industries need most is a polishing compound that is especially tailored to gel coats. PMMA is often used for coating furniture or laminates. But plastics are also polished in the furniture and consumer electronics industries or by manufacturers of musical instruments. The use of plastics is extremely diverse: Menzerna offers the right polishing system for every type of plastic and each field of application.
