Dow Will Wrap Olympic Stadium
Dow Chemical will produce a fabric wrap that will encircle the Olympic Stadium during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Dow says the wrap, made of polyester fabric coated with low-density polyethylene, will consist of 336 panels, each about 25.0 meters high and 2.5 meters wide. The firm is investigating post-Olympics uses for the wrap, including transforming it into emergency shelters. Dow became an official Olympic partner last year in a multi-million-dollar agreement.
