THE BEST SYNTHETIC ICE
SKATING SURFACE EVER CREATED
Super-Glide® synthetic ice is the long-awaited answer to popular demand for a low-cost artificial ice skating surface for every form of ice skating. Now, thanks to advances in polymer chemistry and non-stop research and development, Global Synthetic Ice has made it possible to skate on a true "skate-like-ice" surface, without expensive refrigeration and maintenance. The modern assembly method developed in 2008 eliminates all problems with expansion and contraction allowing full size outdoor rinks to be constructed with complete success.
Super-Glide® Ice Blue, developed by Perry Boskus of Global Synthetic Ice, is a synthetic ice skating surface with a scientifically engineered molecular structure that lets skaters glide just as smoothly as on real ice. Ice rinks large or small, public or private, can now install an artificial ice skating surface that meets the highest quality standards.
Technology behind Super-Glide® synthetic ice-skating surfaces far exceeds the limits of older artificial ice compounds invented in late 1960s. Global Synthetic Ice is now producing Super-Glide® synthetic ice using the most modern computer-controlled equipment available, advancing and leading the synthetic ice industry into the future. This extremely low friction surface results in a synthetic ice-skating sensation virtually identical to the feel of water-based ice.
Large public and home skating rinks, surfaced with Super-Glide® synthetic ice, are now produced with our Patented Interlocking System (Patent No. 8,129,005). This interlocking technology for synthetic ice is a system invented by Perry Boskus of Global Synthetic Ice as a dramatically improved assembly method for Super-Glide synthetic ice. Prior methods of assembly involved a long spline system (also perfected by Perry Boskus in 2000).
Now Global Synthetic Ice has invented a large cut out design that holds the sheets, or panels together even though enormous amounts of pressure are placed on each panel during expansion and contraction. These cut outs were designed for strength, and interlock the panels, so they all move as one, when changes in temperature cause the rink to expand or contract. In order to keep the panels perfectly level, creating a seamless feel when skated on, a special tool was developed that, when attached to a machine, could add a bump and groove system (which fit into each other) applied to the sides of the panels in such a way that it restricts the panels from moving up and down, keeping the entire skating surface very level and smooth.
This system of assembly has been used for Full-size rinks very effectively and has been awarded the Patent No. 8,129,005. No other manufacturer of Synthetic Ice offers this patented Interlocking System.

Professionals, business owners and home users agree: Super-Glide® synthetic ice delivers the perfect package of glide-ability, durability and ease of use without compromise. They tell us frequently, read our synthetic ice reviews to see what they have to say!
Super-Glide®, the brainchild of synthetic ice expert Perry Boskus, is everything a skater demands from artificial ice. Now, Global Synthetic Ice offers synthetic ice products in any size so that no skater will be left out in the cold!
Years ago, synthetic ice skating surfaces needed treatment with dirt-attracting, oily silicone compounds. Super-Glide® synthetic ice uses a revolutionary new low friction formula -- Super-Glide® Skate Enhancer -- that chemically bonds with the dry Super-Glide® surface. With Super-Glide® synthetic ice, you get a skating feel identical to real ice.
Global Synthetic Ice specializes in full-size outdoor synthetic ice rinks. That's why Hockey Players such as John Tucker, Paul Cavallini, and Professional Goalie Trainer Ed Walsh, along with figure skaters Olympic Champion Oksana Baiul and Figure Skating Studio Skate Unlimited, endorse Super-Glide® synthetic ice as the ideal artificial ice skating surface for skaters of all ages and the only surface designed with the quality and durability required for all skating activities. Skate Unlimited figure skating training studio features Super-Glide® and they recommend it to coaches who are looking to open their own facilities.
Super-Glide® synthetic ice skating rinks installed since 1999 remain in top condition, with no limit of skating enjoyment in sight. A testament to high quality materials, sound engineering, and the latest manufacturing technology, Global Synthetic Ice has proven its ability to create synthetic ice products that withstand the world's harshest environments.
Having tested all other available synthetic ice products, the knowledgeable Global Synthetic Ice team, led by Perry Boskus, guarantees Super-Glide® to be a superior artificial ice in every way.
