#5 Close More Auto Glass Sales-

Lower Auto Glass Installation cost will allow you to be more competitive without compromising safety.  Your competitors are converting to Sausage Pack Windshield Adhesive Systems. Don't get left behind competing with old technology.

#6 Improve Auto Glass Technician Efficiency-

Experts say the average windshield installation requires 450ML of urethane.  Dupont Transportation and Industrial (formerly Dow) cartridges are filled with 310ML so the average installation requires a technician to swap out the empty tube for a new one every installation.  

Sausage Pack Auto Glass Adhesive Systems are 600ML so Technicians only need to swap out a new pack every other installation saving time.
