Ready, Set, Hike, with Polyurethane

Start dusting off your favorite team’s jersey because football season is about to kick off! The excitement is in the air as everyone wants to cheer on their favorite team this fall.  Fun facts about football: Did you know that instead of the oval shaped football that we know now, back in 1869, it was shaped more like a soccer ball? Inside today’s football there is a high-tech three layer polyurethane bladder. Two of the layers are made out of polyurethane. The polyurethane helps the football to stay inflated throughout the game.   

Who knew polyurethane played such a role in today’s football game!
