Golf cart covers have become a fixture in the Indian market over the past few years, as they’re used in both indoor and outdoor golf courses.
But a new design for the golf cart covers could make them a bit easier to clean.
A team of researchers from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research has developed a new coating that would help prevent the golf balls themselves from rusting.
The coating, developed by the team led by Akshay K. Prasad of the Tata Advanced Research Institute (TARI), is meant to be applied to golf cart wheels, making them more resistant to rust.
The team has also developed a coating that will reduce rust from the edges of the golf ball, to reduce the risk of the ball’s bouncing off the golf tee.
The golf cart coatings will be applied as an adhesive and are intended to be used on golf cart covered golf clubs, golf balls, and golf clubs that are more than a couple of years old.
The coatings are also meant to make the golf carts more environmentally friendly, with no additional toxic chemicals.
The study was published in the journal Advanced Materials and was conducted by researchers from TARI.
The research team also used TARI’s Golfball Hybrid Technology and the technology of its co-author, Shobha S. Jha, to design the coating.
