    • Thank you for your message!

      All of Xtraice’s synthetic skating floor tiles are self-lubricated. You won’t need an slippery liquid to lubricate our artificial ice surface.

      It’s true that some others synthetic ice skating surfaces need an extra gliding lubricant to get the optimal gliding experience. This extra lubricant is frequently expensive, then, we recommend choosing Xtraice’s self-lubricating panels.

      Choosing Xtraice panels you will avoid this problem.
