Dow Automotive Systems has significantly reduced the AGRSS-compliant drive-away times of its BETASEALTMU-400HV and BETASEAL U-418HV conventional-cure, glass-bonding adhesives by 25-50% or more, depending upon temperature and humidity conditions. This will make it easier for glass shops to be AGRSS-compliant while increasing their daily production, reducing their risk and safely returning vehicles more quickly to their customers at no additional cost or changes in application procedures.
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.
