London 2012 Olympic Stadium sustainable wrap

By: / Uncategorized

The London 2012 Olympic Stadium’s sustainable wrap—a polyester fabric with a low-density polyethylene coating produced by Dow Chemical Co.—will be comprised of 336 individual panels, each approximately 25m high and 2.5m wide. Dow estimates that the LDPE-coated fabric requires fewer materials to manufacture than the heavier fabrics more traditionally used as building wraps, and has a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional building enclosure materials.
