I have a small sweep table... have used it for nearly three decades. It has a thin white opal plastic that needed no heat to make the bend (remember, you want a wide radius bend, not an angle)... have always used strobes so no idea bout how it reacts to heat.

Just be careful to not scratch it by scooting objects across it. Pick things up. Dust will also produce scratches if you clean it improperly.
