A whole different ball game

By in Products

Hainaut-based Saluc dominates the market for billiard balls.

Saluc was founded back in 1923, and supplied chemical products to the large nimber of local tanneries in business at the time. It was in the 1950s, when the local industry disappeared, that Saluc made the switch to billiardballs.

Aramith is at present the only manufacturer of phenolic resin balls ; the production process for each ball takes 23 days and they are prized for being far more resistant than the polyester balls sold by Saluc’s competitors. This is the key, says Saluc, as the pressure on billiard balls can be intense.

No other balls can achieve the same consistency and precision as Aramith.
