I am attempting to differentiate various polymeric materials and am most interested in identifying what material is or is not acrylic. Are there any common solvents that would help differentiate acrylic from other polymer families when applied to the surface? I am looking for something that would chemically damage the surface of the acrylic but not other materials.
Thanks for the help!
