One thing we want our customers to know is that we always try to provide the safest and best installation of their auto glass as possible. Along with our constant re-training and research into best practices, we also use the safest materials available to us. While many replacement shops will save some money by installing using regular adhesives, some taking 14-24 hours or more in our dry Albuquerque climate to reach a safe drive-away time, Lomas Glass and Tint uses Dow Automotive BETASEAL Express, a product with a safe drive-away time of 1 hour down to 0*.
BETASEAL glass bonding systems are used to originally install auto glass in the majority of vehicles worldwide, making the adhesives the perfect choice when restoring windshield structures to the original strength and specification. All aftermarket BETASEAL adhesives are FMVSS crash proven and meet long-term durability requirements for structurally bonded/direct glazed automotive glass, such as windshields, backlites, quarter glass and other stationary glass.
BETASEAL Express Advance Cure Auto Glass Urethane Adhesive is ideal for any replacement to deliver one-hour, safe drive away in temperatures as low as 0 degrees ºF (-17.8 degrees C) standard applications. It is easy to use and does not require heating.

Aquapel Applicator Pack
Dramatically improves visibility in rain and forms a chemical bond with automotive glass — unlike other products that simply coat.
New single applicator pack
Used by professionals
Lasts up to six months
When AQUAPEL ® Glass Treatment is applied to the exterior of vehicle glass, it leaves the surface water resistant. Rain beads up and rolls off, dramatically improving visibility—day and night. One application lasts up to six months—six times longer than other products.
Aquapel Glass Windshield Cleaner Can
Exclusive ammonia free formula sprays on and wipes off easily. Easy-to-use, fast-acting foam clings to vertical surfaces - no running, no dripping, no streaking. Cleans thoroughly and dries quickly.
Contains no ozone-depleting chemicals
Leaves no film
Fresh, clean aroma
Safe on acrylics, polycarbonates, and other nonporous surfaces
AQUAPEL ® Aerosol Glass Windshield Cleaner cleans and polishes automotive glass and mirrors, and is safe to use on fiberglass, laminates, vinyl, and other nonporous surfaces. Effective on appliances and fixtures, too. The ammonia-free formula uses denatured alcohol to clean thoroughly and dry quickly, leaving a pleasant, clean aroma.
We have both products in stock, stop by and pick up yours before the next big snow or rain!!
