Uses for Acrylic Floor Polish

Though originally meant to clean and protect flooring, acrylic polish has other uses. This polish is actually an acrylic varnish. It is long-lasting, hard-wearing and does not turn yellow over time. It can be a protective coating, an adhesive and a decorative coating to add gloss to a clear surface. The model building world has actually found a way to use all of these options when working with small parts. However, these uses don't have to be considered specific to the modelling world. You can apply them to anything needing similar attention.

Glossy Varnish

You can apply acrylic polish by airbrush or paintbrush to any surface that needs a protective, glossy coating. You may need to thin he liquid for proper use in an airbrush. Be sure to clean the distribution device after each use. Acrylic polish will dry and harden, leaving the device hard or clogged.

Adhesive

If you're working with small parts that won't need a heavy-duty adhesive, acrylic floor polish will get the job done. Once it's dry, the floor polish becomes hard and will hold items in contact. Another layer of polish over the point of contact will strengthen the connection.

Clear Protective Coating

You can spread acrylic floor polish over the surface of clear plastic materials and others. Without fogging or blocking the clarity of the item, it will provide protection against scratches and nicks.
