FAQ:Installation of Super-Glide synthetic ice rink
We have led this industry since 2000, if it did not work, we would not be recording record sales and growing year after year. “SLICK” is designed as an alternative to real ice; it is not cold and does not need electricity.
SLICK synthetic ice is a specifically modified polymer that allows the skate blade to glide smoothly over its surface. All skating elements can be performed. Hockey stops, deep edge cuts, stick handling, spins, jumps, anything done on ice can be done on “SLICK”.
First, we do not say we are the best, everyone who skates on SLICK does. With over 20 years of science and technological advances in chemical glide ingredients, pure resins, and cutting-edge design we have created the best possible surface in the industry. SLICK synthetic ice has earned the reputation as the best hockey and figure skating training product available today – check professionals’ testimonials.
Super-Glide is a high-tech plastic that you can skate on practically like on real ice. Super-Glide® SLICK is a synthetic ice skating surface composed of a proprietary blend of polymers that permit a skate blade to glide as smoothly as on real ice. Correct density is very important, too hard and the blade slips out, too soft and the surface is very slow, Super-Glide is just right.
Skating on ice means gliding on a thin layer of water as the blade’s friction generates heat and melts the ice surface. Skating on Super-Glide® causes the same friction and heat, which releases lubricants chemically engineered into Super-Glide®. This sets Super-Glide® synthetic ice apart from all competitors. Older synthetic ice surfaces required silicone lubricants. When skate blades cut through the silicone and hit dry spots, skaters felt undesirable “chatter” that increased friction and made skating harder. Super-Glide®’s unique formula eliminates “chatter” and allows the blade to glide smoothly.
Regular retail price of Super-Glide Slick synthetic ice panel sized 4′ x 4′ is $179.
We do understand how important price is, yet QUALITY and RELIABILITY are and should be priorities especially for training and commercial ice rinks. Shopping by price is a major cause of ice rink failures.
