A method and a system for improving performances of an ice skate blade on ice, comprising selecting a substrate for the blade and controlling wettability of the surface of the substrate, by selecting a surface finish for the surface of the substrate and depositing a thin film coating on the surface of the substrate. The method allows autolubrication of the ice skate blade. The autolubricating ice skating blade comprises a substrate and a thin film coating deposited on the substrate, the substrate having a first friction coefficient on ice, and the blade ...
1. Autolubricating ice skating blade, comprising a substrate and a thin film coating deposited on the substrate, said substrate having a first friction coefficient on ice, said blade having a second friction coefficient on ice, the second friction coefficient being decreased compared to the first friction coefficient. 2. The blade of claim 1, wherein the substrate is one of: steel, stainless steel, tool steel, powder metallurgy alloys and tungsten carbide. 3. The blade of claim 1, wherein said substrate is treated prior to deposition of said thin film co...
