Dow Automotive Systems with new product portfolio for commercial transportation

Major technologies available and proven within the industry are: Elastic and structural adhesives and sealantsSpecialty adhesives (e. g. rubber to substrate)Structural and acoustic cavity filling foamsThermal insulation foamDiesel particulate filtersReinforcing composite resinsInterior/exterior trim adhesives Now, as part of its commitment to commercial vehicle manufacturers Dow Automotive Systems is launching a series of new technologies to address the market's unmet needs. At the same time, the company expands the elastic adhesives portfolio which has already been well received. Betatech Plus: Polyurethane-based solvent-free sealants with good adhesion attributes on a wide range of substrates common in construction of commercial vehicles with no/less pre-treatment requirement. It is manufactured as white, gray and black and available in various packaging options. Betawipe Hydro 2: Improved water-based activator which is ready to use, requires no mixing prior the application and has extended pot life. Developed to be used in glass bonding applications instead of a blackout primer to reduce VOC and process time, used with the Uniwipe adhesives portfolio. Betaseal 7150: New generation of Uniwipe adhesive systems compatible with Betawipe Hydro 2 to meet the low VOC requirements during elastic bonding and sealing applications on commercial vehicles to meet workers safety requirements. Betaseal 7170 and Accel: One-component polyurethane adhesive system which can be accelerated by dosing water paste as second component to enable humidity independent curing and reduce the fixture times. When warm applied it delivers a green strength to maintain the position of the bonded parts to eliminate mechanical fixation methods and tapes during the process. This adhesive system is also compatible with Betawipe Hydro 2 to meet the low VOC requirements.
