National Windscreens, has cut its drive away time to 30 minutes with the help of Thatcham-approved adhesive.

The company is using BETASEAL 1580 glass bonding adhesive from Dow Automotive Systems at all of its 108 ADAS Centres to provide peace of mind and help customers get back on the road quicker.

Pete Marsden, managing director for National Windscreens, explains: "Safety is of paramount importance when replacing a windscreen.  BETASEAL™ 1580 adhesive, when used correctly, allows a car body to be at least as strong after glass replacement as it was on the day it left the factory. In today’s vehicles, as much as 40 per cent of the structural integrity is derived from the glass so it is vital that the best possible adhesive is used when installing replacements."

"The fact this adhesive has been approved by Thatcham Research, the motor insurers’ automotive research centre also informed our decision to use this adhesive at our UK-wide network of fitting centres, supporting our commitment to always put motorists’ safety first."
