Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte: HALCO at Wembley
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury produced a stunning one-punch stoppage in the sixth round to beat fellow Briton Dillian Whyte this weekend – but did you know these two boxers were surrounded by HALCO products?
We supply HALCO Hook and Loop and Adhesive Tapes to a Worcester-based company who were commissioned to manufacture the boxing ring applications for the fight, including the corner buffers, canvas skirting and rope covers and we are very excited to have played a small part in the manufacturing of these components, which not only provide a safe boundary for the boxers, but also feature widely recognised brands as advertising materials used on the ring at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Heavyweight Champions need Heavyweight HALCO
The HALCO F20 range of non-woven tissue tapes are available in a range of thicknesses in addition to this popular 100-micron product. With its specifically constructed adhesive, it provides the perfect bond for nameplates, paper and cards, plastic plates, metal sheets and is the chosen method of use for the manufacture of the ring covers used at Wembley.
HALCO PLUS™ Sew On Hook & Loop is used on the canvas skirting, which provides a heavy duty hold onto the deck and also features on the black, branded down straps linking the four ring ropes together. Manufactured using a mix of high-quality polyamide and polyester blend this fastener is suitable for up to 5,000 open/close cycles and is Certified to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, REACH and RoHS.
