Maintaining Acrylic

All items archived at Collector Archive Services are carefully placed and sealed inside our UF5 acrylic for 99% ultraviolet protection. This assures preservation of the item in its current condition for decades to come. A thin seam allows for airflow, keeping moisture out while maintaining a constant safe temperature within. CAS recommends you keep your collectible inside the puncture-proof 6-mil protective polybags that are tightly wrapped around every item that leaves our facility. This will safeguard your acrylic case from scratches, chips or cracks while being transported or stored, and guarantees that the acrylic will never diminish the appearance of the item it protects.

 

Once you are ready to display the item, CAS suggests simply removing the item from the polybag and placing it on a secure shelf or inside a dimly lit display cabinet. When dusting is needed any of the many “Swiffer” style dusters will do the job. If you want to remove fingerprints, adhesive labels, gummy substances, etc., use only a very soft damp cloth with one of the many available acrylic-cleaning products. Do remember that acrylic can be scratched, so never use any solvents, scouring compounds, or glass cleaners.
