How It Works
Our synthetic ice consists of a unique plastic polymer that best resembles the consistency of the world’s largest white cutting board. Our outdoor, indoor, and anywhere ice skating rinks are fitted together like a giant jigsaw puzzle in 4’ X 8’ synthetic ice sheets. We then treat the ice panels with a lubricating solution that reduces contact friction and enhances the glide and speed of the skating experience.
When skating on natural ice, the skate blade causes pressure which generates heat and melts the ice, creating a thin layer of water which is the source of that smooth skating glide. With our synthetic ice the skate blade creates the same heat, causing a release of the lubricants in the sprayed on solution which gives skaters the feel of skating on natural ice.
