DOW AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS: Glass-Bonding Adhesives
Conventional-cure adhesives such as the BETASEAL U-400HV and BETASEAL U-418HV systems rely on temperature, humidity, and time to cure. As a result, safe drive-away times vary considerably depending on temperature and humidity. Between 70°F to 80°F and 50-70% relative humidity, the new drive-away time for BETASEAL U-400HV is three hours, or 25% faster than the previous time of four hours. For the same conditions, the new drive-away time for BETASEAL U-418HV is four hours, or 50% faster than the previous time of eight hours.
