Rainier tackles an Olympic-sized task

By: / Uncategorized

Rainier Industrics Inc., Tukwila, Wash., was hired to fabricate the panels that wrapped the London Olympic Stadium. The task required 24-hour days for 45 days to complete and demanded strict sustainability standards.

The wrap:

  • Includes resins made by Dow’s Performance Plastics Division and required fewer raw materials to manufacture
  • Includes polyester fabric with low-density polyethyleane coating
  • Is 35 percent lighter and has a 20 percent lower carbon footprint than more conventional materials, according to Cooley Group
  • UV-curable inks were used to reduce emissions during the printing process and eliminate VOCs
