Novus Plastic and Acrylic cleaning solutions are widely used by professionals in almost every industry. Their system is very simple to follow and the results speak for themselves. Use the whole system or just a single step to make your Acrylic tank look better than new. Works on a wide variety of plastic surfaces.


Heavy Scratch remover will remove most heavier, deeper scratches, and other large abrasions from acrylic and most other plastic surfaces. The abrasive formula quickly removes scratches that would not normally be removed by most traditional plastic buffing compounds and allowing easy follow up with step #2 Fine Scratch Remover.


Requires use of Novus No. 1 and 2 for final finishing.



  • Step 1: Shake well. Test in an inconspicuous area.
  • Step 2: Apply NOVUS No. 3 liberally. Using a clean, soft cloth, polish with a firm back-and-forth motion at right angles to the scratches. Keep the cloth saturated with polish at all times.
  • Step 3: Continue polishing until only fine scratches remain. Using cloth, remove all remaining polish, this is very important! (any remaining polish will lead to further scratching on finer steps)
  • Step 4: Using a clean cloth, apply NOVUS No. 2 in a circular motion uniformly to entire surface. Polish using light pressure until NOVUS No. 2 dries to a light haze.
  • Step 5: Using a clean portion of the cloth, buff the surface clean. Follow with NOVUS No. 1 for best results.


Note: Do not use on coated Plastics. For fine scratches that will not be removed by Novus #1 Plastic Clean & Shine we suggest using Novus #2 Fine Scratch Remover. Larger, deeper scratches may require Novus #3 Heavy Scratch Remover.

Product Questions

Will this work on plastic lenses from eye glasses?
Question by: Richard on Mar 1, 2022, 7:16 AM
Hey Richard, thanks for the question! The Heavy Scratch remover will remove most heavier, deeper scratches, and other large abrasions from acrylic and most other plastic surfaces. Should this be the material you are trying to buff out, it should work.

I have vinyl dining room chairs which have minor scratches to each chair, 6 of them. They were scratched by my cat's back claws. You can't see the scratches, but can feel them. Will this product work? The area to fix is a cream color.
Question by: Lorie on Sep 13, 2017, 8:08 AM
If the material you are working with is a plastic base like vinyl, Novus polish should work just fine. We suggest trying it out in an inconspicuous area first for compatibility, but we have had great luck with all colors of plastic. You will want to make sure that the vinyl is colored all the way through the material and if it is, Novus #3 and Novus #2 should be able to take the scratches out. Depending on the severity of the scratches a little wet sanding before the polish may be necessary before hand, but you can always try the Novus first, and then go to sanding if the Novus didn’t take them out completely.
