July 29 (UPI) -- An adhesives company in Germany set a new Guinness World Record when its heavy duty glue kept a 37,919 pound truck suspended over the ground.

Guinness said the company, DELO, applied its glue to an aluminum cylinder about the size of a soft drink can and attached it to a crane.


The glue cylinder was then able to lift the truck more than 3 feet off the ground, where it was suspended for one hour.

DELO said the glue was developed special for the attempt and is high temperature resistant.

"The great result is an absolute team success, which also shows how we work every day. We don't shy away from challenges and we know our adhesives can live up to extremes," said Sabine Herold, managing partner of DELO.
