The Radical Inferno — it's not your father's bowling ball.
Brunswick Corp. is using its new reaction injection molding machine, and polyurethane material technology from Pittsburgh-based Bayer MaterialScience LLC, to make the new ball. Brunswick's Web site calls it a “urethane casting” process.
The machine is part of a custom-built room full of advanced equipment boasting enhanced processing control — so Brunswick's research and development team can fine-tune bowling ball performance.
The Radical Inferno makes a sharp, continuous turn into the pocket. It also offers improved back-end traction, thanks to the Octane reactive cover stock from Bayer, which is infused with several colors.
Bayer spent three years developing the cover stock material.
Brunswick is based in Lake Forest, Ill.
