Get Your zorb On: An Inside Look at the zorb Ball

zorb Ball

The zorb ball has taken the world by storm in recent years, but many people are still unsure about what exactly it is and how it works. The following guide will explain the ins and outs of this fascinating toy, from its construction to how it’s used, from how much it costs to where you can buy one. 

Zorb Ball Construction

The materials used to construct a zorb ball are typically plastics and other synthetic materials sourced locally in New Zealand. The body of the zorb ball is made from an opaque, hard plastic that provides structural integrity and durability while being transparent enough to see through. The interior liner is made from a soft material (typically polyurethane) that prevents injury from impact and provides cushioning during collisions. Finally, the exterior shell is usually made from more durable plastic with a glossy finish for aesthetic purposes.

Materials used

The ball is constructed using various plastics and materials. Most of which are sourced here in New Zealand. The main shell is made from a type of plastic called High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This material is recyclable, durable and strong, making it an ideal choice for a product that will be in contact with harsh outdoor environments.

The outer layer of the ball is a material called Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer (EVA). EVA has been used to manufacture inflatable toys since 1954, and it’s also used in shoe soles to create durability during wear and tear.

Where they source their materials

Zorb balls are made from a variety of different materials sourced from New Zealand. All plastics used in the production of a zorb ball are first recycled, and then melted down to make new products. The most common plastic types used in zorbs are polyethylene and polypropylene, which makes up about 85% of all plastics manufactured worldwide. Polyethylene is lightweight, strong, and flexible which makes it perfect for moulding into a zorb ball. Polypropylene is tough and heat-resistant so it can be used in areas that need protection against high temperatures such as near the burner or in an oven. This plastic is also FDA-approved to be microwavable or dishwasher safe!

How does the ball work?

The ball consists of two compartments. The first compartment is inflated with air and covered with a heavy-duty, weatherproof vinyl. This forms an airtight seal on the outside of the ball. The second compartment is filled with a small amount of water and sealed off from the first compartment. When pumped up to its desired level, this water will act as a weight and push down on the air in the first compartment, causing it to expand and form an extremely tight seal between itself and the vinyl covering. This makes for one very tough ball!

Benefits of using a zorb ball

The benefits of using a zorb ball are many. The main benefit is that you can have fun and be active without worrying about injuring yourself. A zorb ball is also really good for your core, which can help with preventing lower back pain and injuries. Other benefits include being able to socialize with friends more easily, having more energy throughout the day, and feeling more invigorated in general.
