xSynthetic Ice xGlide8 utilizes premium grade resins and quality presses to provide you with a superior consistent slick surface for the life of the product. Our xSynthetic Ice™ tiles are precisely machined to exact product specifications using computer controlled (CNC) machines to ensure a perfectly machined, high-performance skating surface. xSynthetic Ice™ xGlide8 is the perfect solution for any residential or small commercial application. These tiles offer superior glide properties and durability with glide enhancer infused throughout the entire thickness of the material.
Whether you are looking to improving hockey skating, passing, shooting, goaltending skills or just leisure skating anywhere, this is the perfect synthetic ice!
xSynthetic Ice™ xGlide8 offers superior glide properties and durability with glide enhancer infused throughout the entire thickness of the material. Both silicone glide plus dry slip additives are combined with the raw material resulting in the longest glide and highest overall performing panel we've found on the market today. These innovations translate to make our xSynthetic Ice 20-30% faster than othter well-known brands for the entire life of the panel. Best of all, you don't have to deal with adding liquid glide. This Synthetic Ice has been designed with a very high molecular weight to ensure that skaters are able to edge into the product without ripping a massive gouge into it, or just sliding across it. Synthetic Ice must feel realistic in order to provide a skater with the confidence to perform manuvers they would on an ice rink.
xSynthetic Ice is a Sinter Pressed material which means less cleanup and a greater overall skating experience compared to the typical competitors extruded sheet material. xSynthetic Ice is designed to maintain its' superior glide properties as it incorporates infused silicone glide plus dry slip attitivesand, so it is built to last. There is only ONE true synthetic ice skating efficiency test that ensures you are buying a high quality synthetic product. Most companies will cite the Coefficient of Friction (COF) tests to compare their product with refrigerated ice. This is not only a poor comparison – but it is also misleading to the consumer. COF tests are not made using a weighted skate blade – so why talk about them? Even the sellers of synthetic ice don’t understand this – so how can a consumer ever be expected to understand?
xSynthetic ice tests using actual skates has proven to have on average, 30-40% less resistance than any competitor tested, which provides you with a BETTER product and an easier skating effort. Manufacturing standards based on DIN ISO 9001 ensure excellence in raw material consistency every time our panels are produced. This directly translates to a superior synthetic ice skating performance. Most sellers of synthetic ice have absolutely no idea where their raw materials come from. Some producers simply switch from one resin supplier to the next looking for the cheapest price. This can result in mixed resin batches that can produce inconsistent materials with various negative consequences over the short and long term of a product life. the xGlide's superior grade resin (raw material) ensures a consistent synthetic ice sheet every time. Machined to exacting standards using computer controlled (CNC) machines provides you with a precise joint every time, which means uncompromised safety, and higher levels of product satisfaction. All of this translates to a more enjoyable and consistant skating experience.

We recommend using cold water and scrubbing with a stiff brush (to scrub out embedded dirt and debris). DO NOT use HOT water, especially under high pressure for all glide-infused xGlide products. If you need to use a pressure washer, DO NOT allow the spray nozzle to be closer than 12” from the surface or on the high-pressure setting and ONLY use COLD water.
