On January 15th, Dow Automotive Systems releases Xpress30 fast cure auto glass urethane.  Dow's latest Auto Glass Adhesive allows Auto Glass Professionals to release vehicles in 30 minutes at temperatures as low as zero degrees F.

Here's a few Frequently Asked Questions regarding the product and availability of this 30 minute urethane. 

What’s special about Xpress30?

  • 30 minute MDAT down to 0F. 
  • High Modulus/Non-Conductive
  • Moderately priced. 
  • Won’t skin over too quickly. 8-10 minutes to set a part.
  • Superior viscosity. Slightly higher than Express but less than One.

Can I buy Xpress30 in Cartridge & Sausage?

Yes. Cartridges (10 packs) and Betapaks (9 packs) will be available for order January 15th. It may take 10-14 days for that inventory to arrive in your branch. Your local distributor may limit sales until existing inventory is reduced. You need to discuss this with your local distributor Sales Rep.

How do I get my Xpress30 pricing?

This cold weather urethane is moderately priced. 

But don’t depend on the default pricing on your distributor’s website. To ensure you receive appropriate pricing, contact your Sales Rep directly.
