Retro Acrylic Table Scratch Repair
Florida Plastics Projects

Travel wear of horizontal plastic furniture surfaces, is what we commonly do. After 28 years, the simple, low tech process remains the same. All it takes is a hand power buffer, patience and a good eye. A bar of buffing compound, similar to rouge, is liberally applied.

Sometimes, the scratches are so deep, a small area needs to be orbital sanded. Care must be used to keep the surface from loosing it's factory flatness, or become wavy.

The table is never as good as when it was first made. The furniture reseller normally understands this. It is important for me to explain to them, that only about 80 of the scratches will be taken away with this quick "once over".
