Dow LogoDow have announced three grades of Betamate structural adhesives have passed the European Standard EN45545-2 for railway vehicles.

Betamate 2700 A/B, Betamate 7120 and Betamate 7170 were tested and satisfied the hazard level (HL) requirements for EN45545-2.

Tests included applying the adhesives in conjunction with steel, testing for window assemblies, interior and exterior surfaces, floor structures and other general interior and exterior bonding applications.

The three Betamate adhesives are suitable for railway vehicle manufacturing where applications range from bonding windows and surfaces inside and outside, bonding trim components, floor panels and coverings as well as general applications.

  1. Good morning,
    I am working on acceptance of Betaseal 1590CT for use on rail vehicles. Do you have any technical data on the flammability of cured Betaseal 1590CT?
    I have noted that the original system Betamate 2700 and Betamate 7120 has met the requirements of EN45545-2, I need to demonstrate that Betaseal 1590CT has similar properties regarding resistance to ignition.
