Title
(EN) GOLF BALL CONTAINING GEL
(FR) BALLE DE GOLF CONTENANT UN GEL
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is directed to the use of gel material in a golf ball. In one aspect of the invention discrete gel particles form an integral structural and functional role in the hard-cover, mantle or core elements of a golf ball to provide an additional way of varying the playability properties of a golf ball. In one embodiment the invention is directed to a golf ball comprising a mantle dispersed with discrete voids filled with gel to provide a heterogeneous mixture of at least one gel material and at least one non-gel material. In another embodiment of the invention 10 parts of ground down silica gel material, 50 parts Iotek$m(3), 1002, 50 parts Iotek$m(3) 1003, and 0.025 parts UM Blue to provide a composite mantle. In this embodiment the degree of measured compression (and good guide to deformability and initial spin rate when struck by a golf club) in increased with a commitment decrease in Shore C/D hardness. In another aspect of the invention discrete elastomeric particles form an integral structural and functional role in the hard-cover, mantle or core elements of a golf ball.

L'invention concerne l'utilisation d'une matière en gel dans une balle de golf. Selon un aspect de l'invention, des particules de gel séparées forment une structure intégrale et jouent un rôle fonctionnel dans les éléments formant couverture extérieure rigide, enveloppe ou noyau, d'une balle de golf, de façon que d'autres manières de modifier les propriétés de jouabilité d'une balle de golf soient possibles. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne une balle de golf comprenant une enveloppe dispersée avec des vides séparés remplis de gel, de manière qu'un mélange hétérogène d'au moins une matière en gel et d'au moins une matière non-gel soit formée. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, 10 parties de silicagel douci, 50 parties d'Iotek$m(3) 1002, 50 parties D'Iotek$m(3) 1003 et 0,025 parties d'UM Blue sont utilisées pour la formation de l'enveloppe composite. Dans ce mode de réalisation, le degré de compression mesurée (bon guide pour la déformabilité et la vitesse de rotation propre lorsque la balle est frappée par un club de golf) est augmenté par réduction de la dureté Shore C/D. Selon un autre aspect de l'invention, des particules d'élastomère discrètes jouent un rôle structural intégral et fonctionnel dans les éléments formant couverture extérieure rigide, enveloppe ou noyau d'une balle de golf.
