The Teroson Terostat 8594 HMLC Power Kit from Henkel is being used by AA Autowindshields’ nationwide fleet for windscreen bonding.

AA Autowindshields provides a comprehensive 24/7 automotive glazing repair and replacement service every day of the year. The business attends approximately 180,000 glass-related call-outs per annum, divided between laminated glass repairs, body glass repairs and windscreen replacements.

Terostat 8594 HMLC polyurethane adhesive is a one-hour drive-away time product for twin-airbag models. Its high-modulus properties help the torsional stiffness of the car body shell and its low conductivity ensures lasting corrosion protection.

Its performance is complemented by Teroson FL+, which removes silicon residues from laminated windscreens, and Terostat 8519P, an all-in-one primer and activator. Both are included in the Teroson Terostat Power Kit, which has both PAS 125 and Thatcham certification.

In trials, the Terostat 8594 Power Kit passed all benchmark tests and was adopted by AA Autowindshields from December 2012.
