Synthetic skating rink (synthetic ice) - thermopanels or thermoplates of synthetic material based on polyolefin, used for figure skating, playing hockey, curling, etc. The synthetic surface imitates natural or artificial ice of the skating rink. Sheet panels of a synthetic skating rink are made from polymeric material with low coefficient of friction, the increased wear resistance; A polymeric material is used that contains a lubricant that is released during friction. For skating on synthetic ice, ordinary skates with metal blades are used, the same as for skating on ordinary ice. Typically, a synthetic roller consists of sheet panels connected to each other by fastening straps end-to-end or using dovetail, saw, etc. cutouts. Synthetic sheet panels are installed on a solid, as even and smooth surface as possible - this can be ground , asphalt, concrete base, wooden floor, tile, metal or wooden platform, etc. Synthetic ice is also called artificial, which causes confusion, since the name “artificial ice rink” is usually used for ice created with HAND refrigeration unit freezing water on the roller surface.
