Ice and climate

Ice is the material the automotive winter test business is based on and consequently we are specialized in how to prepare ice into the shape and form necessary, depending on which kind of surface the tests will be performed on.

Ice, as a living material needs a lot of time and experimenting in order to learn to know it and find out good techniques for state of the art preparation work. After nearly forty years of experience Icemakers has the special knowledge about ice needed for a professional result.

The winter climate is dominated by high pressures generating low average temperatures.
