Mylar is very useful for protecting playfields (I recommend spot use only)
and has many other uses. Mylar comes in 1 mil and 2 mil thicknesses. For
use on the playfield you want as thin a layer as possible so ball
trajectory will not be affected. But, for durability you want as thick as
you can get. 1 mil is difficult to handle because it is so thin--Think of
it as very sticky tissue paper. Static charge will also attract the mylar,
so 1 mil is especially tough to apply. 2 mil is much easier to handle, very
durable, and the thickness is not so much that it seriously affects ball
movement. For these reasons, I recommend using 2 mil thickness everywhere
you want mylar.
