Tyre Show 2012 United Kingdom: Hofmann Power Weight
Balance weights for motor sports to be made available to the retail trade as of February
Hofmann Power Weight is launching a 60 gramme adhesive weight: the new HPW 380 balance weight. Developed for motor racing, the new weight offers top performance for the most stringent of demands.
"In motor sports, speed and reliability are what count above all else", says Thorsten Thom, managing director at WEGMANN automotive. "That's why we have worked closely with our technology partners to develop a weight that is capable of addressing these needs perfectly." The HPW 380 adhesive weight represents an enhanced product that has been optimised to meet workshop balancing requirements.
The new adhesive weight from Hofmann is quick and easy to fit and stays firmly attached to the rim. Thanks to a patented production process and integrated grid web, the strip fits perfectly on the contours of the rim and makes fitting a straightforward task. The weight measures 169 mm in length and comprises 12 segments weighing 5 grammes each. The segments can be divided as required thanks to the handy perforated adhesive strip without any need for additional cutting tools. The proven adhesive strip technology ensures a firm hold on all conventional rim types. A high-quality plastic coating compliant with OEM criteria protects the weight from corrosion in all weather conditions.
The adhesive weight is available in silver, black and chrome and can be ordered in packaging units of 25 or 50.
