Custom made name badges for the TCCA

These badges will be distributed exclusively in this group buy thread only, not anywhere else. Each badge is sequentially labeled beginning with #0001 to #0100. Please note that these are limited edition badges and this group buy will END once we are sold out. The number can be increase from 100 to 150 or 200 if enough badges are sold.

Since badge numbers are unique, if you see a car on the road with a specific badge number, you can look up what member that was on the cumulative GB List!

Specifications:

3" x 1" 1100 Alloy Aluminum with Brushed/Satin Finish with a hard anodized clear coat.
3M VHB (Very high bond) mounting tape
Strength: 25 lb/in of 90 degree peel adhesion strength (440 N/100mm)

Anodized / Clear Coat Specs:


Mil-P-514
Mil-P-15024D Type H & G
Federal Spec GG-P-455B

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.



Price is a firm $20 USD which includes Shipped to North America and Canada in an bubble wrap envelope. All badges are backed with 3M VHB.

You can just send a paypal payment to: [email protected]
Please verify your paypal shipping address, the forum name, include your screen name, AND BADGE NUMBER.

The List:

You may choose your own unique number from 4-100 that is not already taken by another member. So any number NOT on the most recent list is still available.

For the most current list, see the most recent post in this thread. Please use the SHORT LIST version and if you see a fellow member who forgot to add him or herself to the correct list then please be courteous and add them. Thanks

What is the minimum order to have these produced?

Can we request a 3-digit number higher than 100? And can we get duplicates... I would probably want one for each side fender.

We will only keep it under 100, unless there are more memebrs interested than 100. We can order more than one badge
