How to Remove Paint from esd Plexiglass

  • The most serious problem in removing spilled paint from esd plexiglass is that it will be scratched. This problem becomes much more serious if the paint has dried up. You can prevent scratches, however, by using a paint remover, often known as a paint stripper. It is a chemical agent that dissolves the paint and allows it to be quickly scraped away. Also with the use of a paint remover, the job is difficult and demands extreme caution. To remove the paint from esd plexiglass without scratching it, carefully follow the 12 steps outlined below.


    Step 1: Get a Remover/Cleaner.
    Invest in a high-quality paint remover. Don't try to save money by purchasing a less expensive remover because it may not be successful and may scratch your bottle. Also, if you don't already have a glass cleaner, go out and get one.

    Step 2 – Choose a Location
    A paint remover, in general, emits strong fumes that can be harmful to your skin. As a result, you can operate in a well-ventilated area or outside.

    Step 3 – Launch Windows
    If the esd plexiglass you want to clean is an indoor fixture, such as a door, make sure all the windows throughout the work area are open.

    Step 4 – Arrange the Newspaper
    Distribute any newspaper around the work place. When cleaning a fence, slide the newspaper underneath it. Be sure to use several layers of newspaper.


    Step 5 – Clean the Floor
    Your floors' finish can be harmed if you use paint remover. So, if the remover spills on the concrete, make sure to wipe it up right away with a towel.

    Step 6: Use the Remover
    Using a spray bottle, apply the remover to the painted patch. When cleaning a door or something else with esd plexiglass in an upright position, use a semi-liquid paste of the remover.

    Step 7 – Set aside for 20 minutes.
    Allow at least 20 minutes for the paint remover to work. This will allow the paint remover to quickly work on the paint and break it down so that it can be easily removed.

    Step 8 – Clean Up the Paint
    Gently chip away the paint with the plastic scraper. Take special care not to scratch the plexiglass.

    Step 9 – Avoid Scratches
    If any paint seems to have adhered to the surface, do not attempt to remove it by force. You'll end up scuffing the bottle. It is preferable to reapply the remover and wait 20 minutes.

    Step 10 – Make Use of a Cleaner
    Apply glass cleaner to a clean, dry paper towel that has been folded. To remove the scraped paint, wipe the painted area with a towel. In this stage, you can use more force than in steps 8 or 9.

    Step 11 – Repetition of the Procedure
    If you notice that there is still some paint left, repeat steps 6–10. Most of the time, you won't need to do this more than once.

    Step 12 - Completing
    Clear the place. Pick up the newspaper and toss it. Clean your hands thoroughly to clear any remover/cleaner.
