I'd like to hear what Mirco has to say on this, lots of playfields with that logo in my house. Chipping on all of them.

Quoted from TomGWI:

I have a Mirco BSD playfield I installed. Looks perfect so far. Not sure on plays but I am guessing over 150-200 at this point.

Would you want to pull up a post and see if there is a deep indentation in the clear? Preferably a sling post.

Quoted from vireland:

Open the new playfield and let it sit out in the open air for 6 months to a year. It'll be fine. I don't think it's a problem with the clear per-se, just that it wasn't allowed to fully cure.

Just so I'm clear with all of these threads going on... you are implying that newly made playfields need 6-12 months to cure otherwise they will be soft enough that stuff tightened down on them will "pool" the clear around the items? Am I correct I inferring that this was not the case with clears 5 or so more years ago? Or that somehow playfields of that vintage and older were able to sit that long to cure?

I'm trying to understand how this affects me going forward both with my own restores (using SprayMax 2K auto clear) and new playfields from whatever factory. I see some folks have re-cleared some factory playfields but not sure there have been tons of scientific type comparisons of same vintage playfields. I just 2K'ed a JP playfield and waited almost no time to sand, buff and install playfield items and I see no issues so far. Is 2K/automotive not what playfield manufacturers are using?

Quoted from Chalkey:

From the JJP thread, quoted from the OP:
"Jack called me. We got disconnected, he was driving, but the gist is he understands there are issues. He says that it is not the clearcoat, it is the installation of the playfield pieces. He said he does not blame Mirco."
All you guys are doing over here is driving another vendor away from ever responding on pinside.

I'm telling you what Jack said. I didn't say that's the truth or that is what I believe. I think Mirco has some culpability here but no one on either side wants to really speak up or give any technical details or reasoning. It's all some smoke and mirror job to keep issues on the down low, it seems. The less discussion the more it will be ignored it feels like. People still by playfields and games, doubt any of this really affects sales even because suppliers seem to be in more demand than the market cares about in quality.

If either of these companies wanted to be stand-up, professional about it they would offer a public statement and technical details about what happened, what is being done to fix the issue going forward and what those affected should expect to make themselves whole. Spending $600 more on a playfield with the same issues isn't a resolution, it's a slap in the face.

I don't see why this wouldn't be a good place for Mirco to comment on their quality standards. A question has been raised, it would seem to know what quality we can expect from Mirco products and support for any issues. What if the is produced by another manufacturer, is he not responsible for possible issues? These are important to know before I buy my next playfield.
