It depends on the type of plastic and what you mean by 'etch' (that is, why you want to etch the plastic). People etch to reveal grain structure, although that doesn't sound applicable for plastic. People etch to improve paint bonding or bonding of electroplating (in that case chromic acid is used on ABS plastic). People etch as a means of engraving. We need more context, please, Ray.
