The article features a trailer design proposed by 3M engineers to reduce or eliminate delamination, which is a common problem in most trailer designs. The idea was to eliminate any mechanical fasteners from penetrating the sidewall panel and allow space for the panel to move and grow as the aluminum heats and cools creating an unconstrained panel attachment. To prove that this idea works, 3M conducted durability, thermal, and leakage testing at the Bosch Automotive Proving Grounds.
