How are the Knuckit footballs made
The thermo bonding method means that the 32 panels are thermally glued and bonded by heat. There are no stitches, so the balls take up less water and keeps the original weight better when playing on a wet surface.
Knuckit footballs has are made to last and give the best playing experince possible 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 golfball pattern surface structure that minimizes air resistance.
Under the synthetic leather hides the Knuckit butyl bladder that allows for maximum shape retention and inflation duration. On the outside the bladder is wrapped in a cotton lining for added durability. 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.
Advanced heat-sealing technology gives the ball a perfectly spherical shape with minimal water absorption.
