    Had a tractor trailer that was sent to Alaska. It was a 2 year project.
    When it came back, the vinyl was peeling. We used intermediate vinyl.

    They want to reletter it and send it back for the next job

    So, the question is... what vinyl do you recommend that would last longer.
    Do I use any high performance vinyl or is there something better.

    I actually thought of a banner frame system. It would be easier to install, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up in the cold.

    Cast Vinyl Only!!!!! Intermediate wont last worth a damn in extreme conditions....Period
    I'm surprised it lasted one year let alone two. Stick with 3M, Gerber, Arlon or Oracal.
