Aramith, the signature of true Belgian Quality.
Unlike screen printed balls where the colour and number are on the surface only the colour on engraved balls runs right through the ball and the number is part of the material.
Perfectly round and balanced with uniform weight and hardness. These phenolic balls last up to five times longer than other balls made from polymers or polyester.
With this durability they are the logical choice.
Made in Belgium.
Available in the following ball sizes:
- 2 1/4" (57mm)
- 2 1/8" (54mm)
- 2 1/16" (52.5mm)
- 2" (51mm)
For several decades Belgian Aramith Billiard balls have enjoyed a legendary reputation for outstanding endurance and uncompromised quality. Used by almost 80% of players worldwide, they are recognised as the reference of the industry.
Made by Saluc in Belgium, Aramith excellence is the result of a high-tech process that combines the unmatched characteristics of phenolic resin with fine Belgian craftsmanship.
Their consistently reliable performance guarantees players the pleasure of razor-sharp precision. Their exceptionally long product life offers the table owner the lowest ball cost on an annual basis. That is how Aramith for almost half a century gained its legendary reputation as signature for true and unrivalled quality.
Here is why :
|Extra long life|
Properly used and maintained with the Aramith® ball cleaner, the Aramith balls will last at least five times longer than any other balls. (UP TO 40 YEARS in case of home use)
|Very strong & scratch resistant|
Withstands over 50 times more impacts and is far more scratch resistant than other balls.
|Less white marks on your cloth|
Resists at the friction temperature of 482°F/ 250°C when the ball slips into motion! + No flat spots on the ball!
The unique elasticity of the phenolic resin is calibrated for optimal rebound which allows a perfect control of every shot.
|The ultimate in balance|
The perfect homogeneity of the material in plain balls as well as in numbered balls guarantees perfectly true and accurate roll.
Professional players and federations worldwide have exclusively selected the Aramith® balls.
Not just a smart buy but a wise investment
A quality investment
Perfectly round and balanced - uniform weight and hardness - brilliant colours - friction resistant roll and reaction - are just a few of the key features that have earned Aramith its worldwide reputation as the premiere ball. Aramith balls are internationally approved for tournaments and championships.
A lifetime investment
Aramith phenolic balls last up to 5 times longer than other balls made from polymers or polyester. The billiard-play simulator leaves no doubt : Aramith phenolic balls are still perfectly playable even after 400000 hits, whereas others were rendered unusable. No wonder they are the logical choice for commercial and private table-owners.
A money-saving investment
Thanks to their exceptionally long service life Aramith guarantees the lowest ball cost over time. The extra hard phenolic surface drastically reduces burn spots on both balls and cloth. As a result, balls need to be polished and replaced far less, saving both time and money.
A money-making investment
Aramith balls on the table attract league and tournament players. They enhance the quality image and reputation of any club. Regulars and newcomers stay to improve their play. By generating more income out of each table while lowering operating costs, Aramith balls help increase profits in the long run. And that's how one gets to see the real colour of money.
Aramith phenolic resin : why it makes the difference!
Heavy duty design
Rather than a polyester number-plug-design, the Aramith concept has the numbers precision-engraved in a solid core that runs all the way through the ball. As such, it is impossible for number-cores to fall out over time. Using phenolic resin assures homogeneous characteristics in each ball part. So homogeneous that when finally getting to its breaking point (and one needs minimum a 5 ton-load in case of an Aramith ball), the ball will break up totally at random, and not along the parting line between the stripe and the rest of the ball, as one would expect.
Hitting a cue ball actually accelerates it from 0 to over 30 km/h (20 MPH) in just a fraction of a second.The resulting friction temperature between ball and cloth can easily reach 250°c (482°F). That's why Aramith balls are the only ones made from genuine phenolic resin : their molecular structure is engineered to be wear resistant at these high temperatures, making Aramith balls far less vulnerable to abrasive burn-spots. They hold their high luster and smoothness over a much longer period of time, resulting in minimal ball and table cloth wear.
High Impact resistance
Because hitting the balls is the essence of the billiard game, impact resistance is a critical factor. Aramith's phenolic heat-curing process fully stabilizes material tensions. It produces a vitrified high-density surface that offers maximum impact resistance. Tests show Aramith phenolic balls to withstand to over 50 times more impacts than other phenolic or polyester balls. They are also twice more scratch-resistant.
Consequently, when intensively used even on less maintained tables, Aramith balls are clearly far less easily damaged than others by pocket fixings, table mechanisms or cue sticks...
Aramith phenolic resin : designed for high precision play
The ultimate in balance
Constant density and balance are of the essence to control speed, direction, spin, impact and rebound in the game.
Through-hardened phenolic resin offers the unique advantage of a completely stabilized material with homogeneous density dispersion throughout each Aramith ball. With the center of gravity at the center of the ball, the resulting ultimate balance guarantees perfectly true and accurate roll.
Far more important than ball tolerances are the balls rebound capacities. Only predictable rebounds allow strategic repositioning of the cue ball to optimize the following shot. The unique elasticity of the phenolic Aramith resin has been calibrated to offer the optimal level of rebound to allow players to fully control the effect of every shot.
The exclusive use of Aramith phenolic balls by most professional tours, federations and amateur leagues in championships and tournaments worldwide is an indisputed endorsement of the quality reputation and superior performance of Aramith balls.
... when quality is a tradition
1. Because the ball material is crucial for its quality and performance, Saluc uses only phenolic resin produced in its own plant. As such it has full control over each of the basic material specifications that determine the playing characteristics.
2. The 13-step production process lasts 23 days and includes casting and curing processes combined with unique grinding and state of the art polishing technology.
3. Throughout the production process, computerised technology continuously interfaces with and assists our craftmanship to guarantee tight diameter tolerance and sphericity throughout each Aramith ball set.
4. Computerization of colour formulations and number engraving guarantees precisely crafted billiard balls. Therefore, every replacement ball will match up perfectly with any set!
5. Regardless of the many automated and statistical quality controls used to guarantee tight specifications, each ball is still checked manually before leaving the factory to provide the worldwide distribution network with reliable output.
6. Quality also means respect for our environment. Saluc maintains a full water treatment facility which incorporates environment-friendly processes with sophisticated recycling technology.

Here are our best-sellers
Super Aramith Pro Beautiful colours and numbers, heavy-duty design, ultimate precision and exceptional longevity were designed into the Super Aramith Pro pool ball set to meet the trade requirements in quality and cost.
|Snooker : |
Aramith Tournament Champion
Endorsed by the World Professional Billiard and Snooker Association (WPBSA), the Tournament Champion is the leading product on the snooker scene. Its unique high density of 1.87 is widely recognized as the key to excellent play.
Super Aramith Tournament
Carom may well be considered as the most sophisticated discipline of billiards. Most world champions train and play with the Super Aramith Tournament set because the unsurpassed performance of these balls allows them to consistently reach new record heights.
The Aramith Quality Certificate
The Aramith product line includes two main quality levels, defined basically by the different types of Aramith resin that are used and the quality control specifications linked to it.
Aramith Premier (green box)
While less wear-resistant than the Super Aramith sets, the Aramith Premier sets still offers a lifetime up to 5 times longer than the other materials. Each ball is controlled along 7 criteria : density, balance, diameter tolerance, sphericity, colour, surface polish and brilliance. All numbers are engraved to very tight specifications.
Super Aramith, Super Aramith PRO and Aramith Tournament Champion are the top of the product line.
Produced to the most exacting tolerances and standards, every ball in these sets is, on top of the multiple regular controls, individually calipered to insure maximum consistency from ball to ball in order to constitute a homogeneous matched set for true excellence at play.
The resins used in these top quality sets even further maximize the ball and cloth life. Their transparent vitrified surface is through-hardened, allowing the balls to hold their specifications over an unusually long period of time.
It is this unique quality level that made these sets to be the favorite products used internationally in tournaments and championships.
Beware of imitations
While most other polymer and polyester balls try to imitate the look and/or packaging of the Aramith product line, none offer the quality of phenolic resin. Beautiful in the box, most look quite different only a few hours later. Beware of imitations and check for the Aramith logo and/or the Aramith name on the box to be sure you've got a genuine Aramith phenolic ball set.
