DOW Automotive Delivers Optimized Betaprime™ 5500SA

Dow Automotive is re-introducing its single-application unit of BETAPRIME 5500SA 1-Step Glass/Frit Primer. According to a company news release, the product is "newly optimized to meet customer needs" and prepares and primes windshields in one pass, meeting all OEM and long-term durability requirements.

"We are pleased to respond to customer concerns about reported primer leakage in some of the single-application units," said Bernie Defreitas, Dow Automotive Product Market Manager for North American Glass and Plastic Bonding, Small Packaging. "First, we redesigned the applicator head to reduce primer wet-out. Then we went one step further to make it easier to differentiate the improved product from old inventory by changing the applicator head color from black to brown."
