Body primer is also applied to the painted surface of your vehicle to promote adhesion of the replacement glass to the body. This insures that the structural integrity of your vehicle is maintained.
There are many products available to auto glass replacement shops with varying specifications and results. Crystal Glass specifically uses Dow BETASEAL Express and BETASEAL One. These products are advanced-cure urethane adhesive with enhanced chemical cross linking to speed bonding for safe drive-away times of 1 hour in temperatures up to -17C.
