Kookaburra Hockey Ball

Kookaburra is the world’s largest supplier of cricket and hockey balls. Their Dimple Elite MK hockey balls were used exclusively at the Rio Olympic Games. The ball featured a specifically developed micro-foamed core co-developed by Kookaburra and Pacific Urethanes.

Kookaburra worked closely with Pacific Urethanes to develop a PU solution that meets FIH’s stringent performance requirements and the expectations of the world’s best players. The Kookaburra Dimple Elite MK hockey ball is made of a golf-sized solid PU core wrapped in layers of cork and worsted yam to form a unique multi-layered quitted centre. A polymer casing is then injected and moulded around the centre to give the final product its renowned tracking dimpled appearance.

Pacific Urethanes based its formations on Dow Chemical polyurethane raw materials for this exacting application. In addition to the on-field performance requirements, elite players rely not just on sight but also on sound to judge the speed and trajectory of the ball when it is in play.

Pacific Urethanes worked with Kookaburra for over two years and developed 14 different formulations to achieve the successful Olympic-standard hockey ball. Pacific Urethanes and Kookaburra are very proud of their achievements in developing a world-class hockey ball that will be played on the world stage at the Rio Olympics.
