XG Sciences’ Proprietary Graphene is the Not-So-Secret Ingredient for Delivering Better Control and Distance with Each Swing
LANSING, Mich., Feb. 13, 2018 – XG Sciences, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-quality graphene nanomaterials, today announced a collaboration with Callaway Golf Company focused on two new product offerings: the Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X golf balls. This new Callaway Golf® ball line incorporates XG Sciences’ highperformance graphene nanoplatelets into the outer core of the Chrome Soft balls, resulting in a new class of product that enables increased control, higher driving speeds and greater distance.
“We are pleased to partner with Callaway Golf and contribute to their success. This is just one example of how our proprietary graphene nanoplatelets provide performance improvements for our customers,” said Philip Rose, CEO of XG Sciences. “We now have the scale in our manufacturing capability, leveraging two proprietary high-volume processes to meet the growing demand for high-performance composites. Our manufacturing know-how allows us to produce materials with high quality, consistency and performance that can be varied to meet multiple end-use customer applications.”
“The use of graphene in our most premium golf balls unlocks performance characteristics for distance and control that would not be achievable otherwise,” said Dave Bartels, Sr. Director, Golf Ball Research & Development of Callaway Golf Company. “Golfers expect the highest level of consistency, quality and overall performance from our products, and the innovative use of graphene in our new golf ball design is evidence of our continued commitment to exceeding those expectations.”
