Dow Automotive Systems recently announced that its BETAMATE™ structural adhesives have been named a silver winner by the 2015 Edison Awards, an annual event recognizing products and people that deliver game-changing industry innovations. Nominees are evaluated on concept, value, delivery, and impact.

“BETAMATE structural adhesives are customized to contribute to sustainability, safety and efficiencies in transportation manufacturing—all of which are highly valued by our customers,” said Steve Henderson, president. “For example, BETAMATE is enabling the development of lighter weight vehicles around the world and more than 7 billion meters of BETAMATE have been applied since it was introduced more than 15 years ago. The lightweighting capabilities of BETAMATE have already contributed to an estimated 2.65 billion gal of gasoline savings, which also brings 23 billion kilograms of carbon dioxide reductions.”
