Description:

Chemically anodized black and blue dyes followed by a mil spec anodized clear top coat.  The result is an image that is chemical resistant, and highly durable for outdoor applications in direct sunlight and in salt water conditions.  The plate of metal itself would have to be destroyed to affect the image due to the state of the art manufacturing.  Traditional silk screen or printed badges has color that can scratch off with your fingernail, and the colors fade in UV light...  These military spec bad boys do not have a raised ink surface and will last a lifetime.

Each badge has been anodized and CNC cut from a sheet of 0.050" aluminum alloy sheet which is very robust.  In addition, each badge is backed with 3M 4949 VHB Black foam tape. This is a premium mounting acrylic/rubber-like pad that will allow your badge to mount to your exterior paint, or textured surface plastics. Designed as an exterior fastener to replace rivets, spot welds, and liquid adhesives, 3M VHB is made of a viscoelastic acrylic foam that is energy absorbing with outstanding durability.  (UL746C)




The acrylic adhesive is 100% resistant to full submersion in water, salt water, hydraulic fluid, 10w30 motor oil, and glycol antifreeze. 90% resistant to kerosene, 50% resistant to jet fuel, 35% resistant to gasoline, and 5% resistant to MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone).

If applied at room temperature, 50% of ultimate bond strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours and 100% after 72 hours.  The higher the temperatures, the faster the curing time.

Installation:

PLEASE make sure the badge is exactly where you want it to go before applying it.  This means first taping the badge to the location you want and checking that it's not crooked.  Next, outline the badge with tape to mark the location.  Finally, peel back the clear plastic liner and apply firmly to virtually any surface that is clean.  The bond will be strong, however it can and will remove cleanly without leaving a residue.  Just apply about 90 lbs peeling force and the "rubber like" adhesive removes cleanly.
