Star brite Clear Plastic Restorer and Clear Plastic Polish
Restorer: $12.34, Polish: $11.34; amazon.com
Main Customer: Marine
Description: Star brite markets these products separately but recommends using the restorer on damaged acrylic and other plastics to remove hazing, yellowing and fine scratches. Once the product has done its job, Star brite recommends Clear Plastic Polish be applied to finish the clarifying. According to the label, the polish adds UV blockers to protect against future yellowing and hazing.
Test Notes: Clear Polish was a “wetter” application than most but did fair work on the terry abrasions. So, we used the Clear Restorer, a thicker compound, and it raised the polish score from 2 to 3. Neither product was equal to the 600-grit scratch test, but we weren’t disappointed since they weren’t presented as being heavy-scratch removers.
Final Note: With great value, it’s ideal for keeping newer acrylics looking new.
