If you have trouble, there's an alternate formulation from the same manufacturer called 'shine up'. It comes in a liquid, not spray... You might very well find that plast-x on its own does the trick. The common part of all the products listed is a component of silicone which leaves the wax like surface finish.

Some industrial data disc repair machines and lense polishing equipment use portions of commercial formulations very similar to plast-x or shine up, without the lemon scent. They polish polycarbonate discs or lenses to a sub-micron tolerance...

Re: Canopy Scratches. Help

Pledge will smudge and fog the more times applied. Know this from experience using it on real aircraft.

I saw a compound called Plexus at the Canadian Aviation Trade Show back in the early 90's and was so impressed bought some to try on our helis. I then recommended it to everyone who would listen. Now that's all our local flying club and most others use.

Pledge does nothing to fill micro scratches and crazing will still be evident. The more Plexus is applied the better it optically smooths the surface.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

Alberta Re: Canopy Scratches. Help

Mirror Glaze from any Aircraft supply chain , Squirt some on and rub off with baby diaper is the best , make sure plastic is clean water rinse is also the best , It smells like Bananas . Or do what Dean mentioned 2000 grit , use grey scotch pad wet & clear coat . Or give someone a call at Canadian Helicopters @ the airport they will probably give you some in a small container .

Good luck Nate ,
