Crazing of acrylic sheeting

From: Geoffrey I. Brown <gibrown>
Date: Tuesday, December 10, 1996
Another possible source of crazing of acrylic sheet is exposure to
ketones.  Some cements for bonding acrylic contain small quantities
of acetone or MEK which is enough to induce crazing.  Vapor from one
of these solvents could be present in other materials, as well.
