Title:
LOW COMPRESSION, RESILIENT GOLF BALLS INCLUDING AROMATIC CATALYST AND METHOD FOR MAKING SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2000038795
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
A low compression, resilient golf ball having a center and a cover, made from a polybutadiene reaction product having polybutadiene, a cis-to-trans catalyst including an aromatic component, and a free radical source. The reaction product typically has a first dynamic stiffness measured at -50 DEG C that is less than about 130 percent of a second dynamic stiffness measured at 0 DEG C. A multi-layer golf ball having a center, at least one intermediate layer disposed concentrically about the center, and a cover. At least a portion of at least one of the center, intermediate layer, or both, are made from a reaction product including polybutadiene having a cis-to-trans catalyst that includes at least one aromatic component and a free radical source. In particular, the use of various combinations of polybutadiene, cis-to-trans catalyst including at least one aromatic component, free radical source, filler, and cross linker, produces golf balls and golf ball components that are resilient (fast) and have low compression (soft).
