In passenger cars the ceramic frit usually functions as UV protection and is supported by a primer in case of windshield bonding at OEM or are placement. In busses and trucks or even train coaches there sometimes the glasses have no ceramic frit due to aesthetic purposes therefore BETAPRIME UV will grant .a problem free glass bonding or replacement since it has a superior UV blocking characteristics.

BETAPRIME UV now is the solution. It can be utilized in traditional glass bonding or replacement business passenger vehicles, busses, trucks or trains. It is a 2-step pre-treatment system on aliphatic chemistry basis which includes the application of BETAWIPE as cleaner & activator prior to the application of the primer layer. Due to its specific chemical formulation it offers a yet unique UV stability compared with other primers available in the market. The UV resistance of standard aromatic glass primers was evaluated on basis of lap shear tests after accelerated exposures according to SAE2627 norm.
