High-Performance Golf Balls

A driving force in golf ball technology

dow_58909788330-content-golf-ball-driver-390x197

As a component in roughly 90 percent of all golf balls, including top global brands, SURLYN™ Ionomers are clearly leading the field. With outstanding long-term durability, flex, impact, crack, scratch and scuff resistance, they’ve been a material of choice for golf ball covers and mantles for more than 60 years.

Our expertise in material science and intimate understanding of golf ball engineering have allowed SURLYN™ Resins to evolve alongside the rapidly growing golf industry – adding other advanced materials, including PARALOID™ Impact Modifiers, NUCREL™ Acid Copolymers and FUSABOND™ Functional Polymers, to help stay far ahead of the pack.

A formidable foursome

Innovation is a team sport

noav-content-dow-glbi-7-16-2021-0801-350x230

When it comes to developing advanced golf balls, collaboration is the key. We work closely with all our customers, using competitive monitoring, performance testing and continuous customer input to improve every grade of ball.

One example? We recently teamed up with Callaway Golf, combining PARALOID™ Impact Modifiers and SURLYN™ Ionomers to produce a proprietary blend that promotes key player benefits, including long distance, exceptional spin, outstanding feel and short game control.

Perfecting our “long game”

Like all of our offerings, our materials for sports and recreation are designed and manufactured with sustainability in mind. We’re constantly exploring and innovating, seeking out new ways to make even better, more sustainable materials to help protect people, our communities and our planet.

While our efforts to keep plastic waste out of the environment extend far and wide, we’re pleased to report that we’ve also helped repurpose used plastic mesh fencing into recycled golf tees, ball markers and divot tools.

Playing the whole course

Our commitment to golf doesn’t end with golf balls. As an organization that truly cares about inclusivity, we’re thrilled to partner with both the LPGA Tour as sponsor of the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational (GLBI) and the PGA Tour.

With the annual GLBI event, and as a founding partner of the LPGA’s online platform, the LPGA Women’s Network, we’re helping foster inclusion and diversity, inspiring curiosity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and sharing our focus on sustainability in and through this rapidly growing sport.

Finishing strong

We’re excited about the possibilities of developing better, more sustainable golf balls and hope you are too. Together, we can hit the sweet spot for a stronger future.
