OFFICIAL HOCKEY PUCKS
Official hockey pucks produced by Gufex s.r.o. are made of high quality mix of rubber, which has been developed over the years.
Its unique composition enables low level of abrasion while keeping high elasticity. Thanks to these attributes, the hockey pucks do not run the advertisments on the boards down and as the only hockey pucks in the world, they do not break acrylic glass, not even when shot at speed 180 km per hour. This was proved by a Finnish company producing ice hockey boards and acrylic glass.
Our best quality hockey pucks are acknowledged by the IIHF certificate and are produced based on the international standard CAN/CSA Z 262.4-97.
with a diameter of 67 mm have small defects on the surface (checks, leaks). These pucks should be used for training purposes. Attributes and parameters are the same as for the official hockey pucks.
They are designed for young ice hockey players. Weight is 87 g and diameter 67 mm.
HOCKEY PUCKS PRINTS
We offer 2 possibilities of prints on the hockey pucks:
High quality full-colour option of printing, which is used for the game hockey pucks. Using this method, a photo can be printed on the hockey puck as well.
It is a cheaper option of printing, used mostly for smaller series and more likely for souvenir hockey pucks or promotional pucks. This kind of printing is not designed for the game, because the logo will not stay on the puck during the game. Foil printing is always one colour only, and the customer can choose from 3 colours – gold, silver or white.

in 1994, the production expanded and ice hockey pucks started to be produced. Later in 1998, our hockey pucks were selected thanks to their qualities as the game pucks for the olympic games in Nagano, Japan. One year later, the contract with International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) was signed and hockey pucks GUFEX were selected as the official game pucks for all the world championships organized by IIHF. From this year onwards, all the championships of men, women and juniors are played with these hockey pucks, and they were also used for the olympic games in Salt Lake City, USA and Turin, Italy. Hockey pucks are delivered to all the countries in the world. They can be found on all the continents, in the traditional ice hockey countries such as Russia, USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, etc., but also in other countries such as China, Taiwan, South Africa, Mexico, Australia and other.
The production of the hockey pucks is currently the main production line of the company, together with the production of technical compressed pieces for light industry, mechanical engineering, construction and electrotechnical industries. It focuses mainly on production based on the customer’s needs and smaller series. Part of the production is formed by household accessories.
