• Case Study: High-Performance Golf Balls

More speed off the tee

More spin forgiveness

More spin control

Larger, softer inner core

Faster curing in production

The Challenge

A leading global golf ball manufacturer sought to create a new golf ball that was lighter, would go farther and provide more spin control on landing.

Solution

We developed a custom graphene solution that yielded lighter, higher performance golf balls. Using graphene in golf ball manufacturing enabled the formulation of a larger and softer inner core for these golf balls, which were manufactured specifically for the amateur golf market. With the increased tensile strength and elongation, graphene decreased the thickness of the outer core while lightweighting the entire ball. Amateur golfers averaged a 19-foot longer drive and exert maximum spin control on landing with the graphene-enhanced balls. The materials also allowed for faster curing, enabling efficiency and quicker restocking for the golf ball manufacturer.
