02/14/2020 | New How-to Section

We had already some quick tipps and guides in our document section.
But we added an installation guide for the new Stern pinball machine Stranger Things, so we decided to place the "How-to" Button a bit more visible on our webpage.

Next Generation Playfield Protector

50 % reduction of thickness – now only 0.5mm (0.02‘‘)

We started in 2012 with our first generation playfield protector, which maybe some of you already know from ebay or other online shops. In the meantime we developed playfield protectors for more than 200 pinball machines, plastic protectors for more than 100 pinball machines, clear plastic sets for more than 60 pinball machines and other useful stuff.

Now it is time to move one step forward.

The Next Generation Playfield Protector is made of Vivak (PET-G), which allows us to reduce thickness and improve the edges by using CNC lasers instead of CNC molding cutters. The new surface is now even more transparent while still being glossy.

Our playfield protectors are precut protectors, which fit individually to each pinball machine type.

Forget about mylar, which offers just a partial protection and can be very, very hard to be removed without damaging your precious playfield.

Forget about clearcoating – clearcoating is, if correctly done, a long term project. Your pinball machine is out of service for several months. You have to level your inserts and still there can be air between the insert and the clearcoat which can result in unwanted „intransparent“ areas. And clearcoating is no protection to avoid dimples!

Depending on the particular pinball machine, a protector can be installed within a few hours including cleaning, which should be done in parallel. The playfield needs to be partially stripped down, so that the protector can be easily placed on the playfield.

All playfield protectors are shipped flat packaged.

P.S. it is highly recommended to also replace rubbers and all balls to have the best long term results…
