It is smooth enough to perform any of the most advanced edge, toe jumps and figure skating spins. It is tough enough to withstand the rigors of hockey play, even simulating the shavings of a hockey stop but people enjoy every type of sport in this artificial ice. There is neither the need of refrigeration nor the use of electricity to maintain the ice rink. It requires little or no maintenance and very little water as compared to real ice. When considered in totality, synthetic ice rink rentals are less expensive than the real ice. They are quicker to install and are absolutely portable.

A synthetic ice rink is made out of an acrylic polymer that is sprayed with a lubricant upon which you can skate as well as on natural ice. Skating on synthetic ice feels just like skating on real ice, even for professional skaters, because the surface is so slippery that it has only 7% more resistance than freshly resurfaced real ice. Synthetic ice overall performs better than real ice, because the glide factor of a real ice rink decreases noticeably within 30 minutes of a busy skating session. Additionally, it doesn’t take much time to install the ice sheet and railings on most rinks and apply a layer of lubricant on the surface to assist with the glide. Most of the time, the installation is over within a day, while real ice can take up to 2 weeks to install the ice sheet.
Synthetic Ice Skating Surface Solution
The synthetic ice skating surface is treated with a solution that is sprayed on it to virtually eliminate friction. The solution is a special product that is intended for use on our acrylic polymer artificial ice skating surface and it is completely safe. The synthetic ice skating surface solution is nontoxic, environmentally friendly, and it will not stain or damage clothing. The solution provides skaters with a smooth glide that is difficult for even competitive skaters to discern from the sensation of gliding on real ice. Our professional staff, which has more extensive experience working with artificial ice surface than anyone else, will expertly apply the solution so that the correct amount of solution is applied and that it is evenly distributed across the synthetic ice skating surface.
Synthetic ice can be used for a summertime skating event, indoors or outdoors, in any climate, and is UV treated so it can be used in direct sunlight.
