    • OE-QUALITY

      As a partner of the automotive manufacturer we develop and produce balancing weights in a premium OE-quality. We follow those quality standards from the incoming good department until the delivery to our customers.

       

       

    • Strong holding force

      The HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT adhesive weights promise best sticking power. Also the knock-on weights stand for best clamping forces, even under extreme conditions, thanks to the patented manufacturing process for the extra-strong clips. And last but not least, accurate shapes ensure a perfect fit on the rim.

    • Highest corrosion protection

      All zinc and steel weights are equipped with our premium OE-standard powder coating. The coating protects the weight against corrosion.

    • Easy installation

      The large product range of balancing weights enable precise balancing to the workshops. The adhesive tapes with 3mm overlapping liner makes peeling off much more easier and the SPEEDLINER tape guarantees residue-free removal from the rim - a real cost and time saving.

    • Design & Environment

      Apart from the functionality the design has a big impact. Therefore, we offer many different colour coatings suitable for each rim. HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT also takes care of an environment friendly packaging. 

    For each wheel the proper fitting wheel weight

    • HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT offers a full range of wheel balancing weights for every rim type. Our customers' benefit is that we provide solutions for each case and offer maximum holding force on the rim.

    Adhesive weights

    Guaranteed strong holding force

     

    OE-Adhesive tape - tested by automotive manufacturers

    For usage at car manufacturers the OE-tape has to meet high standards. The backing material thicknesses match optimal to each weight and the tape is temperature resistant from -40°C to approx. +250°C. The weight can be moved immediatly following adhesion and with careful handling. The complete adhesion force will be reached after 72 hours. All single adhesive weights are equipped with OE-tape.

     

    SPEEDLINER® TECHNOLOGY – GUARANTEED RESIDUE-FREE REMOVAL

Thanks to the perforation, the individual segments can be separated easily and without tools. The SPEEDLINER ® tape is a great relief for working in the garage mainly because of its residue-free removal during subsequent disassembly of the weights.

     

     

     

    FINGERLIFT – eASY LINER REMOVAL

    Thanks to the 3 mm overlapping liner, the Fingerlift-Liner provides an easy liner removal from the tape. All adhesive rolls as well as some additional adhesive bars are equipped with the Fingerlift.

     

    Clean breaking Points thanks TO perforated liner

    All passenger car adhesive weights are equipped with the perforated liner. Thanks to this liner, all segments can be cut off quick and easy. There is no more need for additional tools.

    Installation of knock-on weights

    •  

      SELECTION OF THE RIGHT WEIGHT

      Prior to installation, select the appropriate weight from the HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT range on the basis of the rim shape. The choice is determined by the rim design. The rim flange thickness varies (steel rim/aluminium rim) and different rolling processes are used. Put the weight beside the rim flange before installation to check the shape.

    •  

      POSITIONING THE WEIGHT

      Put the weight to the calculated place. Before knocking the weight on the rim, make sure that the clip is correctly touching the rim flange.

    •  

      APPLYING THE WEIGHT

      After positioning of the weight, apply it with an adequate tool (such as mounting pliers or hammer). To install the weights, no more than two forceful knocks should be used. A higher number of knocks can damage the coating of the weights.

    •  

      CHECKING THE PROPER INSTALLATION

      After application, make sure that the weight is securely fitted.

    Installation of adhesive weights

    •  

      PRE-TREATING THE RIM

       

      Clean the rim thoroughly with a cleaning agent that is compatible with varnish (e.g.IPA 70 %) in order to remove any residual grease, silicone or adhesive.

      PLEASE NOTE: A minimum of 15 °C is required in terms of both the room temperature and the rim temperature.

    •  

      PRE-BENDING THE WEIGHTS

       

      Separate the correct gramage (as calculated) from the bar. Mould the shape of the weight to match the rim radius (with protective film).

      PLEASE NOTE: You need to bend the weights gradually, otherwise they will break apart at the joins. You should bend the weight to a little more than the rim’s radius.

       

    •  

      REMOVAL OF THE PROTECTIVE FILM

      Remove the protective film.

      PLEASE NOTE: Do not touch the glued surface after peeling off the film.

    •  

      STICKING THE WEIGHT ON

       

      Attach the weight to the calculated point on the rim, making sure that the weight is distributed evenly either side and the weight is parallel with the edge of the rim.

      PLEASE NOTE: Press down on the weight hard, working from the centre to the left and right. A minimum pressure of 1kg/cm² is required. The angle of the sticking surface should not be higher than 15° to normal.
