STRENGTH TEST
TRUCK ADS® VINYL BANNER FRAME ADHESIVE STRENGTH TEST

INDEPENDENT 7 MONTH TRUCK VIBRATION AND COLD WEATHER TEST
PATENTED FRAME SYSTEM IS STRONGER AND SAFER THAN METAL FRAME CONNECTIONS

The Adhesive used by TRUCK ADS® in its patented frame system was tested against rivets, welding and Epoxy. A trailer manufacturer evaluated various fastening techniques, including the 3M® adhesive used in TRUCK ADS® Frame Kits, as alternative methods to welding of interior and exterior truck side body panels. The traditional assembly process consisted of welding metal panels to the underlying metal frame.

Strength Comparison Test Procedure. The outdoor "Truck Vibration and Cold Weather Test" that was conducted, ran continuously for 7 months (September thru March), with an estimated 7.45 million cycles - equivalent to about 15 years of over the road truck panel stress. It is important to note that the lifespan of a truck or trailer is estimated at about eight years.

Four fastening techniques were tested. Welding, rivets, one and two-part Epoxy™ resin adhesives and VHB®, (3M® adhesive) used in the construction of TRUCK ADS® FRAME KITS and TRUCK ADS® SECUR-TABS®. A metal frame testing bed was used for performance analysis of each of these fastening methods.

The test device was suspended by a motorized rocking arm. The rocking arm, flexed the truck body panel in a 1.24 inch elliptical path at 44 degrees from the panel's vertical center line at a rate of 500-600 cycles per minute. A test sample of each fastening type was attached to the device.

Test Results Determined the Strongest Method. After the first week, all Epoxy™ bonds failed. By the end of the test period, all riveted portions had broken free and half of the welded panels had failed or welds had cracked as a result of the continuous vibration and pounding.

INDEPENDENT TEST RESULTS

"The results of this study, equivalent to about 15 years of over the road truck panel stress, showed NO SIGNS OF FAILURE for the TRUCK ADS® Frame System adhesive. It was shown to be superior to all other connection methods. For this reason, TRUCK ADS® frame adhesive, when compared to ordinary metal frame system connections, was proven to be the strongest in the truck side vinyl banner industry."
