How to clean polycarbonate surfaces?

Polycarbonate has good resistance to most common chemicals agents. However, it is essential to evaluate the chemical compatibility before using them directly on the PC surface. Some types of interaction can cause yellowing, opacification, cloudiness, cracking, softening or dissolution. To investigate these chemical alterations, it is recommended to view the specific table published on Polycarbonate page of this website. According to chemical tests carried out in our labs, there are no contraindications for using the most common cleanser products, provided they do not contain high alkaline concentration solutions which could cause permanent halos on the transparent surface. Moreover washing with water and neutral soap allows to get good cleaning results. In addition, denatured ethyl alcohol usage might bring any aesthetic-structural damages and its cleaning power is less performing than other specific detergents. Pay attention to avoid the use of abrasive cloths or detergents.
