Icon7 Ranger-Forums Sequentially numbered Badge

Custom made name badges for the Ranger-forums

Each badge is sequentially labeled beginning with #0001 to #0100. Please note that these are limited edition badges. The number can be increase from 100 to 150 or 200 if enough interest is there

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.

If we can get enough interest for there badges, I can have them made ASAP and have a GB started. But I will need the approval of the admin to use the forum's logo first.

I will reserve the badges number 0001-0004 for the admin and support staff, and the rest of the numbers will be available to the rest of the members

I have attached the badge I have made for a Focus forum

Please note, this badge can be placed any where. Not just on your truck.

also if we use a logo of the forum, it must be approved but the admin first.

It would be cool if we all put them in the same place, like the lower left of the tailgate or something...it would definetly be unique. I'd want something real small, like 1x4 or something

This is a awsome idea man. But like Ace said the chances of use seeing someone else out there with this sticker would be slim. But if it was for a club or provance/State, I think you would have a much better chance of getting this off the ground.

Why don't you make them and give them out when people register
Everyone who is already registered can get them for a small amount.

Doesn't everyone have a member number?

While I'm not a fan of stickers... and not a fan of badges, I did enjoy the information on the visco-elastic acrylic foam and rubber like adhesive.

These aren't stickers, they are military spec CNC aluminum plates. I will add the double sided 3M back so you may attched to to a surface.

Also to adding them to your truck was just a basic idea. You can place these badges anywhere! It's just a way to show your dication to the forum and Ranger trucks.
