This is the 3rd one I've ordered. All three have had scratches. The first one was just ridiculous. The protective backing had come off of half of it. I don't know how it got so badly damaged. It was packed in plain brown paper inside an over-sized box. Could the paper have done that?
The second one looked good at first glance. Then I noticed a thin scratch in the protective sheet. After I pulled the sheet off there was a thin but deep groove. It looked like someone had hit the corner of another Lexan piece edge or maybe the corner of a table.
I sent both of those back and ordered a 3rd.
The 3rd arrived today. Scratched. But they're only two light scratches. I'm going to try to buff them out as I get the feeling this is as good as it gets.
If you need some scratched polycarbonate you've come to the right place. You're practically assured that's what you'll get. So if scratches don't matter to your application you'll be fine...
I used this to make a perfect circle sewing template for my wife. Now all her friends want one. This is just right for thickness and rigidity. Perfectly clear. Lexan beats plexiglass hands down. Wonderful stuff and priced right with Prime shipping to boot. I could have driven all over the city to find lexan, paid twice as much, and used gas. This came in two days with free shipping. Tightened my "eco" halo just a little.
Beware that this is not UV resistant and therefore is not a good choice for outdoors. If the description does not say that it is UV resistant then it will yellow outdoors. The UV stable PC is much more expensive.
