Block Fusion Logo The Revolution Continues

The new BLOCK® Fusion is the most advanced archery target ever made

Thanks to a revolutionary new process called PolyFusion™ which molecularily fuses polyurethane to polyethylene, the new BLOCK® FusionTM archery target gives you 50% easier arrow removal and twice the target life of any BLOCK® target ever!

BLOCK® Archery Targets have always touted a combination of easy arrow removal and long target life. It was these attributes that first put BLOCK® on the target map.

The Original Block that started it all

The quest for a better BLOCK®

In an ongoing effort to improve target performance, streamline manufacturing and reduce or eliminate unsightly product blemishes caused by internal banding, BLOCK® engineers discovered a revolutionary process they call PolyFusion™.

The two substrates used to make a four-sided BLOCK® are polyurethane and polyethylene. Polyurethane is what is on the outside of the target. It is formed by combining two chemicals that, when mixed, expand dramatically. Polyethylene is a petroleum based product that comes in the form of small beads that are melted and, with the introduction of a blowing agent, are transformed into the target’s inner layers of Friction Foam™.

Fusing polyethylene layers and polyurethane shell eliminates need for banding, wood

Managing these internal layers in the manufacturing process has always been a challenge and has necessitated the use of banding and planks of wood to assure compression. Compounding this issue is the fact that polyethylene and polyurethane do not mix well. This is where PolyFusion™ Technology comes into play. A proprietary process that molecularly fuses these two very independent substrates, PolyFusion™ eliminates the need for both the wood and banding for compression. This, in turn, eliminates the product blemishing that was being caused by the bands.

No wood means a lighter weight target

Eliminating the wood and banding also means eliminating weight from the target. This is important both for the smaller targets that bowhunters like to carry with them and the larger targets that tend to be moved around in the backyard.

PolyFusion™ Technology also enhances target performance

It wasn’t until this new BLOCK® target was performance tested that the residual benefits of PolyFusion™ became apparent. Amazingly, this lighter weight target, that solved so many manufacturing problems, also performed better than any previous BLOCK® target. A LOT BETTER!

Arrow removal is 50% easier!

Fusing the internal layers to the inner target wall results in more uniform layer compression which, in turn, means easier arrow removal. The fact that arrow removal is 50% easier than any previous BLOCK® target is truly remarkable. And, easier arrow removal means less shooter fatigue, which means you’ll get more and better practice!

Twice the target life!

PolyFusion™ also results in longer target life. Because the layers are fused in place, they hold their position. Arrows find their way between layers. Previously, when an arrow hit a layer head-on, the layer would buckle. This resulted in layer damage that reduced target life.

Once again, it is the magnitude of the improvement that is so remarkable. Performance testing verified that the new BLOCK® Fusion™ lasts twice as long as previous BLOCK® targets!
