SYNTHETIC SKATING SURFACE
What is CAN-ICE?
CAN-ICE is the next big thing in sports surfacing. CAN-ICE is the result of focused research and development specific to making a synthetic surface that offers exceptional glide quality for skating and puck response for hockey. For the first time there is a synthetic ice surface that was made for that purpose not adapted from “cutting board” technology. CAN-ICE is made from UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) combined with special polymers to produce optimal performance and durability while eliminating the need for “glide enhancers” as with other systems.
What is skating on CAN-ICE like?
NHL players after using the CAN-ICE surface report that skating response is 85% that of fresh ice. We find that CAN-ICE is an excellent surface for introduction to skating for newcomers as it is simulates ice but accepts the novice as they learn while eliminating the concerns of cold, wet and abrasive ice.
