Is a mapp torch included with every order of a coffee table?
Plastic polish like Novus #2 (followed by Novus #1) works well for small stuff.
Acrylic, especially thin acrylic, is prone to cracking... one might lean towards poly-carbonate such as lexan for that reason... but it has its own problems(softer, price, clarity, polish-ability).
There was a time when I thought acrylic and polycarbonate were gods gift to men... then when I started working with them for a variety of purposes their shortcomings became very obvious. There is a reason people still use Glass.
