gold star Table Shuffleboard Care Tips gold star

Proper care of your shuffleboard will guarantee you a great playing surface for years to come. Waxing and cleaning your board will preserve the quality of your playing service and prevent damage.

Here are Recommended Maintenance Tips for Your Table Shuffleboard

Try to keep your shuffleboard from windows where there are greater temperature and humidity changes. Also, try to keep your shuffleboard table from direct sunlight which could discolor and dry out your table.

Monthly - Clean Your Board

Use Shuffleboard Cleaner/Glaze to remove all old powdered wax & shuffleboard silicone buildup on your table. Buff your table with a cloth, or Shuffleboard Board Wipe. Let stand for 15 minutes before playing.


Weekly - Prepare Your Board

Apply Liquid Shuffleboard Wax. This prevents dry or dead spots. Wait for 30 minutes before playing.


Before Each Game

1) Apply Shuffleboard Silicone spray before each game. Shuffleboard Silicone spray will cut down on your use of powdered wax.

2) Use your favorite powdered speed wax depending on table size and your desired degree of difficulty.


Triple Crown Maintenance Kit

Purchase Your Maintenance Kit

The Triple Crown Maintenance Kit includes:

Glaze/Cleaner - Removes dirt and grime. Leaves a fresh, clean glaze for a smooth fast finish.

Liquid Wax - Provides a protective coating to your table for a smooth fast finish. It also prevents dry or dead spots.

Silicone Spray - Provides a base after the liquid wax has dried, and before you use your favorite powdered wax. Triple Crown is formulated for Shuffleboard games and can also be used on Foosball & Stick Hockey Games.

The Triple Crown Maintenance Kit can be purchased under the "Maintenance Kits" section.


Powdered Shuffleboard Wax

STEP 2

Purchase Your Favorite Powdered Wax

Sprinkle your favorite powdered wax on the table. There are three major brands of powder wax - Triple Crown, ZieglerWorld and Sun-Glo. Each brand has different speeds of powder wax that vary the speed or control.

For example, ZieglerWorld's White Sand powder wax is super fast and made with pure silicone ball bearings. This powder wax is great for longer tables or for players who want a fast playing surface. ZieglerWorld's Yellow Sand powder wax is the slowest speed wax. This wax is made of cornmeal and silicone - great for smaller tables or players who want more control. Each brand has varying speeds of wax so that you can customize your game. See our Wax Guide to see which brand and speed are right for you.

Table Shuffleboard Plowing

Table Shuffleboard Plowing is an issue where when the puck is travels from one end to another it creates a trail plowing through the powder wax. This can occur due to a few reasons:

  1. Most Common - Table Shuffleboard Pucks. Most American made pucks have a rounded bevel around the bottom sides of the pucks. Some of the inexpensive pucks such as the Tournament Grade Pucks which are made outside of the United States are cheaper as they are manufactured with straight bottom sides like a hockey puck. This can cause plowing.
  2. Wet Board - Not allowing the Liquid Cleaner, Liquid Wax or Silicone Spray to dry on the board and than adding powder wax could create "Clumping" and thus plowing.
  3. Humidity/Moisture in Powder Wax -- If you store your powder wax next to a basement wall, on a basement concrete floor or next to a window - this could create moisture in the powder wax and create "Clumping" and thus plowing.
  4. New Board - Sometimes refinishing a board with epoxy will create a fast board. Without some wear on the board the powder wax doesn't have any grip and creates plowing. A couple of customers have done this and went over the board with fine sandpaper - gently - and this little change stopped the plowing.
