Billiard chalk black from Pioneer

In our online shop you will find a large selection of billiard chalk in the colour black from the top brand Pioneer.

The billiard chalk is usually offered in the form of a paper covered cube and applied to the so-called tip at the top of the cue to provide better static friction between the tip and the cue ball, because the tip is a rounded cap made of leather and therefore quite smooth as well as the billiard ball itself.

Chalk paint

In pool, blue billiard chalk is normally used, whereas in snooker, green billiard chalk is preferred, which is more finely granulated and leaves fewer marks on the billiard cloth. Basically, the colour of the chalk should match the colour of the billiard cloth as the playing surface, so that unattractive discolouration can be avoided. In any case, each chalk can be used universally.


With more than 90 %, silicon dioxide, i.e. quartz, is the main component of billiard chalk. Aluminium oxide, binders and dyes are also added. However, billiard chalk does not contain any measurable fat. The expression "greasier" in fact describes the degree of adhesion of a chalk, which sticks to the white cue ball after the shot.

Application of the billiard chalk

To apply the cube-shaped billiard chalk to the leather, there are two options: spinning chalking or diagonal chalking, which is also called cross chalking.

Spinning chalking has the advantage that the billiard chalk is applied quickly, and it is convenient, but it has the disadvantage that the leather bores into the chalk in a circle and thus a lot of chalk is lost unused. Furthermore, the ferrule gets unnecessarily dirty with chalk.

Therefore, the second option of chalking across the cross is more advantageous, because the chalk cube becomes evenly smaller from above. With this variant, you first chalk on the diagonal and then use the four lateral surfaces.
