Emblem Attachment Solutions: The Perfect Bond

Imagine all the torture and stress an emblem endures in its lifetime. Emblems have to absorb the shock of a car driving over a pothole, the blow of a boat sailing over a wave, the turbulence of a plane flying through a jet stream, and even the vibrations of a running washing machine. The list goes on and on.

Not only must emblems survive those tensions, but also harsh weather conditions. It is no easy task for an emblem to hold its bond or evade cracks during hot summers, cold winters and severe weather storms.
