  • Description

    An artificial ice-rink is on display at the Munich International sports-goods fair. Skaters who have tested the rink say it is essentially the same as ice to skate on.

    The surface consists of a non-abrasive plastic coating applied to wooden panels about a yard (meter) square. These are clamped together on the underside and the whole surface is kept even by adjustable under-floor supports. The artificial ice is based on Swiss inventions and is marketed under the trade name of 'Ice-like' by a German firm.

    'Ice-like' is claimed to have better anti-skid properties than ice, making it better for beginners to learn on, and its higher running resistance is said to be specially favourable for ice-hockey training.

    The Munich fair is being held until Sunday, February 21st.
