Synthetic Ice Q&A
Is it harder to skate on Synthetic Ice?
All synthetic ice surfaces require more effort to perform maneuvers due to the added friction of skating on a polymer surface. This is one of the reason's why synthetic ice is used throughout the industry as a training tool for skaters of all ages. Once skaters are introduced to synthetic ice they often adjust quickly to the surface and make a smooth transition in just a short time.
Can I perform a "Hockey Stop" on PolyGlide Synthetic ice?
Yes. All the same maneuvers that can be executed on "natural" refrigerated ice such as stops, starts, crossovers, backwards crossovers, toe kicks and jumps can all be performed on PolyGlide Synthetic Ice.
How long does PolyGlide Synthetic Ice last or will it wear out?
One of the great things about PolyGlide Synthetic Ice is the more often you use it the more the surfaced is "enhanced" by skating. Normal wear from skating reduces friction and skate blade contact with the synthetic ice surface. PolyGlide Synthetic Ice is built to last many years under normal use.
Can both sides of the synthetic ice panel be skated on?
Yes, both sides of PolyGlide Synthetic Ice can be used for skating and can be easily flipped-over and re-installed if needed. PolyGlide Synthetic Ice is a solid core panel that can be skated on both sides.
What type of maintenance is required to maintain a synthetic ice surface?
Obviously an indoor synthetic ice surface that is not exposed to the outside elements will require very little maintenance. For a non-infused synthetic ice surface just spray-on and even mist of PolyGlide Synthetic Ice glide enhancer and you're ready to go. Our Infused or "Self-lubricating" synthetic ice surface requires no surface spray or wax for skating just a regular cleaning to keep the surface free of imbedded dirt or soil as with all synthetic ice surfaces. Depending on the amount of usage your synthetic ice rink is getting will determine on how often you will need to clean or enhance your surface. If your synthetic ice rink is exposed to excess dirt or dust your skate glide will become compromised.
How often do I need to apply a synthetic ice glide enhancer?
The amount of synthetic ice glide enhancer applications is strictly a matter of preference depending on how you want your synthetic ice surface to perform. Indoor synthetic ice rinks not exposed to rain will require less glide enhancer applications than an outdoor synthetic ice rink. Our infused, self-lubricating synthetic ice panel does not require any enhancer or surface lubricants.
Is it necessary to use a glide enhancer with PolyGlide Synthetic Ice?
Currently we offer both Infused (self-lubricating) and non-infused synthetic ice surfaces for skating. Non-infused synthetic ice rinks do require enhancer but tend to stay cleaner when properly maintained. Infused synthetic ice surfaces do not require enhancer but must be kept clean to maintain performance.
Does PolyGlide Synthetic Ice come with a warranty?
PolyGlide Synthetic Ice comes with a lifetime warranty against any manufacturing defects that leads to damage to the synthetic ice panels (excluding normal wear).
