“Many think a ball is just a ball,” says Mike Cubera, Commercial Manager at Nouryon. “Most are white, roughly the same size, covered with dimples, and stamped with a brand name. But, most golf balls blend chemical engineering and modern manufacturing methods to produce a high-quality, high-performance product.”

He adds: “We have mastered the chemistry of the golf ball. If the core were too hard, it would be like trying to tee up a rock. With the right parameters in the core, manufacturers can help increase resiliency and maximize the distance and speed the ball will travel.” 

Nouryon is the world's largest producer of organic peroxides for the crosslinking of rubbers and thermoplastics. In addition to golf ball cores, our organic peroxides are used in manufacturing a wide variety of products, including automotive parts, footwear soles, adhesive tapes, wire and cable, foamed products and many others.
