Thermo bonded football - Thermally glued and seamless football



Thermo bonded ball

The thermo bonding method means that the 32 panels are thermally glued and bonded by heat. There are no stitches, so the TB balls take up less water and keeps the original weight better when playing on a wet surface.

BRILLANT SUPER TB has the characteristics that distinguish a classic SELECT ball and is suitable for matches at the absolute highest level. The materials are carefully selected and have exactly the qualities that give the best playability and durability. The optimum roundness is ensured with the well-known 32 panels spread over 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. The outer material of the ball consists of synthetic leather with a light surface structure that minimizes air resistance. Under the synthetic leather hides the SELECT natural latex Zero-Wing bladder with a built-in balance point in the opposite end of the valve hole. On the outside of the bladder is a lining made of a 4 mm. thick and exclusive foam material. The outer material and the underlying foam give the ball a softer, lighter and a more comfortable touch. Despite the fact that the ball feels lighter, the weight is the same as a traditional football.

Latex bladder

Under the synthetic leather hides the loose natural latex Zero-Wing bladder with built-in balance point in the opposite end of the valve hole. The bladder is made of high performance natural latex. The concept has been developed to ensure that not only the ball but also the bladder is as round as possible. On the outside of the bladder is a lining made of a 4 mm thick and exclusive foam material. The lining helps to adjust the softness and improves the contact between the ball and the foot.

Foam

The underlying foam is made of a 4 mm thick and exclusive material that gives the ball a softer, lighter and more comfortable touch. Despite the fact that the ball feels lighter, the weight is the same as a traditional football.

PU Surface

The outer layer of the ball is made of synthetic leather in micro fiber polyurethane (PU) with a light surface structure that minimizes air resistance. The surface of this material consists of lots of PU fibres, which give the football a strong surface with consistent softness.

Double lock valve

The rubber material used in our valves is well known for being airtight and together with the Double Lock system, where the air must pass through two ”gates” to escape, the ball is even more airtight than the requirements demanded by FIFA.

Thermo bonding

The 32 panels are thermo bonded. “TB” in the product name stands for “Thermo Bonded”, which means bonded by heat - so there are no stitchings. This means that the ball takes up less water and keeps the original weight better when playing on a wet surface.
