It is a great UV resistant coating for a decent price. It really isn't oily as it doesn't attract dust.

'Plexus' also works as a protectant as well...apparently it fills in the microscopic pores in the acrylic.

I mean it would work great I'm sure if you have it use it really good product just that it is *made for rubber seals to preserve them weatherproof em n' such I use it before winter when I give my car the long run detail tires too then ,and thereafter on occasion as the mainstay like monthly ..
Also have use it for headphone wires if not sleeved to keep em pliable

I dont believe you guys are polishing frosted blocks to crystal freakin clear by hand lol cannot wait to try this myself on my gpu block + pump x-top

It is also meant to prevent fading on plastics. Acrylic is a plastic. tongue.gif

It is probably the most suggested coating for automotive plastics including headlights. I use it a lot and it never disappoints.

I've also used Carpro Reload (an automotive paint coating) on acrylic in the past. After 6 months the pump top I did still looks absolutely perfect. Hasn't faded one lick. Reload is more expensive though. It also has a short shelf life and harder to apply properly.

A couple pics of the pump top that has been sitting on the shelf for at least 6 months. It was coated w/ Carpro Reload. It still looks perfectly crystal clear minus some dust on the bottom side of the top.

Ya you definitely want to polish the inside. But it needs to be washed w/ soap and water thoroughly for any parts that water will be going through. You don't need to use any distilled water if you can thoroughly dry them afterward.
