 Dear  Nagukush  
 Minor  Scraches  can  be  removed  by  using  Brasso(the  chemical  using  for  polishing  Brass  medals  or  utensils).  So  try  once.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 HI,
 It  can  be  buffed  by  using  the  buffing  (polishing)  machines  used  in  ss  polishing  too,  if  the  scratches  are  not  deep  definitely  it  would  help.
 Cheers
 Lingu.

 I  am  looking  to  remove  scratches  from  a  small  sized  acrylic  tank.  So  machine  based  buffing  is  not  possible  because  of  the  small  size  of  the  tank.  
 Do  any  body  have  exp  with  using  Brasso?

 Hi  Nagukush
 
 You  can  use  a  sandpaper  1200  grit  (wet  &  dry)  to  remove  scratch  on  Acrylic
 
 https://www.acplasticsinc.com/informationcenter/r/remove-scratches-from-acrylic
 
 Please  try  it  first  on  scrap  Acrylic  before  you  use  it  but  I  have  used  it  in  Glass  with  good  effect
 
 You  may  get  the  sandpapers  from  Amazon
