January 17, 2014 - Manufactured using innovative molding compound, Super Tough Frac Balls outperform machined G10 frac balls in flexural strength, compressive strength, shear strength, and impact strength. Product line demonstrates optimized ability to hold under pressure downhole for prolonged periods of time at elevated temperatures. Available in ¾–4 ½ in. diameters, ST Series eliminates orientation effect, in which G10 balls have catastrophic break failure in polar orientation.

New - Super Tough "ST" Frac Balls

Craig Technologies, Inc, a leading manufacturer of precision ground plastic balls, today announced the launch of its Super Tough frac ball, manufactured using an innovative molding compound and a non-conventional approach to tooling. The resulting “ST“ frac ball outperforms machined G10 frac balls in the following areas:

• Flexural strength
• Compressive strength
• Shear strength
• Impact Strength

*Comparative testing was completed using a certified testing system. Detailed test results may be seen at

The Super Tough “ST” Frac Ball product line is the result of a two year joint R&D effort by Craig Technologies and SBHPP to develop a stronger frac ball than the machined G10.

This product line shows significant improvement in:
• The ability to “hold” under pressure downhole for prolonged periods of time at elevated temperatures.
• Elimination of “orientation effect”, in which G10 balls have a catastrophic break failure in polar orientation.
• Increased pressure ratings possible at OEM level depending on ball seat design/interference.

Craig Technologies Super Tough “ST” Frac Balls are available in sizes from ¾” to 4 ½’ diameters.
