A newly developed method in soccer ball production is ready to be presented: Dual bonded is the name - DB in short.
QUALITY COMES FROM INSIDE
A look inside a dual bonded soccer ball - Target DB
SR BladderThe bladder in this ball is a reinforced SR-bladder with excellent airtightness for increased stability and controlled bounce.
LiningTwo layers of textile underlining are laminated to the foam layer to add stability.
FoamThe underlying foam is made of a 3 mm thick and exclusive material that gives the ball a softer, lighter and more comfortable touch.
PU SurfaceThe outer layer of the ball is made of synthetic leather in polyurethane (PU). The surface of this material consists of lots of PU fibres, which give the football a strong surface with consistent softness.
Double Lock ValveThe 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.
Dual BondingThe panels are printed with 3 mm edge glue and stitched. In the heat mold, the glue is activated to hide the stitches. The seam sealing is done by hand, and the glue in the seams reduces the water uptake significantly.
The third edition of the new dual bonded production method is the Club DB. This new ball is both machine-stiched and sealed with glue. The contstruction consists of a 3 mm TPU cover laminated with foam to increase softness. Two layers of textile underlining are them laminated to the foam layers to add stability. Finally, the panels are 3D printed with a 3mm edge glue and stitched together. The glue is activated in the heat mold to hide the stitches and the seam sealing is done by hand. By using glue in the sealing of the seams, the water uptake is reduced significantly.The bladder inside is a SR-bladder with excellent air retention. The result is a soccer ball with both stability, control and a softer touch compared to other balls in the range.
Availble in seven different colors. Sizes vary in 3, 4 or 5 per color.
