Big hull windows, glass or plastic?

I recently acquired a 2011 Lagoon 450, hull #2. The large windows on the hull have paint (a decal?) that is very worn and looks shabby. Does anyone know if these windows are glass and can be cleaned with acetone? Or are they some type of plastic? How have others removed this privacy screen?

Thanks!

I have taken the privacy screens off.
The windows are not glass.
I scratched them and had to buff the marks off.
It is better but I can still see some of the marks.

Scott, thanks! What did you use to take them off? And then what did you use to buff out the scratches?

Thanks -

Art, check out SV Leucat's TechnoTips as he discusses this in detail for his Lagoon.
