Default Cleaning Polycarbonate Windows

Looking to treat them to remove some of the haze... wondering what products THT'ers have had success with.

Thanks.

Use a product called 210 It' a cleaner and polish. I use it on my Simrad screens as well. Not sure if it will remove the haze but will certainly prevent it.

Plexus Spray is an excellent cleaner, used it for many years after washing with a mild boat detergent.

If it is polycarbonate, lexan, the haze may be caused by UV.
Poly is not UV stable, and left in sunlight will haze and discolor.

Good Luck.

60ga or thicker polycarbonate such as Lexan or makrolon is treated for UV and has a scratch resistant coating as well. All the cleaners mentioned will clean well but probably not the haze. The 210 is not only a cleaner but a polish as well. It also helps protect against UV.
There are scratch removers you can try that might work, 210 and plexus both make them. If you get them clean you can wax them as well to keep them looking good.

Polycarbonate material is very soft, use only a micro fiber towel or a shammy anything else will leave scratches.
