TrafficLine

Product Description

Fast drying, high build, epoxy ester-based road and line marking paint. Intended Uses TrafficLine is designed to be compatible with most of the surfaces that require line-marking paints to be applied. These include roads, car parks (concrete or tarmac/weathered blacktop), airfield runways etc. Typical other uses are brick, paving, factory floor demarcations and wood.

Technical Information

Colour White, Yellow, Black and a limited colour range are available, subject to commercially viable order quantities. Some colours may contain lead-chromate pigments. If lead-free pigmentation is required, please state this when ordering. Gloss Level Matt. Permanent Volume Solids Nominally 54%, varying slightly with colour. Solids by Weight Nominally 73%, varying slightly with colour. Recommended Dry Film Thickness Depends on environment and traffic density but a minimum of 150 microns is recommended. Theoretical Coverage 3.6 square metres per litre @ 150 microns DFT, giving (approx) a 48 metre line that is 75mm wide.

Method of Application

Lining machine, airless spray (tip size 11-13 thou), conventional spray, brush for small areas or lines. Drying Time Touch Dry ..... 10 minutes. Through Dry ...15 minutes.

The above drying times are quoted at 20°C and will vary with the actual conditions such as: film thickness, air movement, temperature and humidity. Shelf Life 12 months in original unopened containers, when stored under cover within the temperature range 5°C - 35°C. Mix thoroughly before use.

Overcoating The application surface should be dry and free from dust, oily residues and any other contaminants that might affect adhesion or performance. It is recommended that asphalt and other similar surfaces be allowed to through harden for up to 6 months before painting. Test trials should be carried out in the first instance on a small area. In the case of synthetic surfaces (such as ‘all-weather’ sports pitches), existing line marking paint and other areas where appearance or performance is important, it is further recommended that test areas be coated to ensure good adhesion and/or compatibility with the substrate/previously applied coatings.

Do not apply or dry when either the air or surface temperature is below 5°C or when there is mist, fog, high humidity, snow, when rain is imminent, or when the surface to be painted is wet with condensation or when condensation may occur during the drying period. The surface temperature must always be a minimum of 3°C above dew point.

Preparation

Painting and drying should never be undertaken when the air temperature falls below the minimum temperature for the coating, Trafficline displays excellent intercoat adhesion characteristics, minimising re-marking problems. If the substrate is particularly porous, a thinner first coat can be applied to seal the concrete/tarmac, followed by another coat applied 1-2 hours after the sealer coat to bring the dry film thickness of the system to 150 microns. This work should only be carried out if deemed necessary by an experienced line-marking contractor.
