Team Howard used BalancePlus EQualizer Faceplates to win the Canada Cup of Curling.
BalancePlus has reached an exclusive agreement with WORLDiscoveries, the technology commercialization group, at the University of Western Ontario for the exclusive license to manufacture and sell brush-heads using patented technology developed by a research group for the Engineering Faculty at Western. This patented technology was secretly created for Team Canada 2010. Brushing produces heat. In the past, more heat was produced by using more and more abrasive fabrics. The abrasive fabrics currently being used wear off the pebble. This causes flatter ice and increases the difficulty in making quality shots. EQualizer technology will keep the heat produced close to the ice where it is needed,providing many benefits over current brush-heads.
EQualizer brush-heads feature less abrasive fabrics leading to less ice damage and the reduced friction requires less effort to sweep.
