Converting Ideas into Solutions ®


Truck & Trailer and Specialty Vehicle manufacturers have turned to Budnick for customized solutions for panel bonding, trim and emblem attachment, sealing and gaskets, and more.

Eliminate Rivets

Eliminating rivets and replacing them with a double-coated mounting tape improves the truck or trailer’s aesthetics as graphics can be applied and run continuously without interruption.

Panel Mounting

Tapes are ideal for mounting panels in replacement of or addition to mechanical fasteners. Foam tapes' compression is perfect for mounting floor panels in refrigerated trailers.

Trim Attachment

The foam tapes and foamed acrylic adhesives can be used to quickly mount trims, profiles, and finishing elements for both interior cab and exterior trailer applications.

Sealing and Gasketing

Compressible foam sealants create water, dirt, and air tight seals under the most demanding conditions.

Case Studies

Budnick makes truck + trailer and specialty vehicle manufacturers more efficient by integrating tapes into the production process.

Case Study Die-Cut Protective Film for RV Wheel

A custom die-cut surface protection film reduced time, labor, and quality concerns for an RV manufacturer

  • Custom cut to 39.5’’ diameter sheets
  • Added paper liner for easy removal
  • Only one worker is now needed to apply the film
Case Study Process Review

This customer was spending far too much time masking cabinets before wash and baking cycles, having to use different tapes for each step.

  • Process review was performed with a trusted tape manufacturer
  • Implemented a tape that withstood both the painting and powder coating processes
  • Converted products saved the customer valuable production time
Case Study Mounting a Fuel Tank Emblem

A fuel tank manufacturer was spending excessive time hand cutting tape to the dimensions of their logo, only to see it fail to bond to the tank.

  • Customer was using a film tape that was not a long-term emblem mounting solution
  • Hand-cutting the tape was no longer a feasible option for the customer either
  • Customer needed a tape that could withstand environmental elements
