CARRIAGEWAY MARKING PRODUCTS - OFFICIAL APPROVAL AND RESEARCH - A RESEARCH TOOL: THE "CARRIAGEWAY MARKING" FILE

LES PRODUITS DE SIGNALISATION HORIZONTALE - HOMOLOGATION ET RECHERCHE - UN OUTIL DE RECHERCHE : LE FICHIER "MARQUAGE ROUTIER"

SINCE 1972, THE SELECTION AT A NATIONAL LEVEL OF PRODUCTS FOR CARRIAGEWAY MARKING HAS BEEN RENEWED AND CONFIRMED AT THE LCPC. IT IS BASED ESSENTIALLY ON THE IN-SITU BEHAVIOUR OF BANDS APPLIED WITH HIGHWAY EQUIPMENT ON BITUMINOUS AND CONCRETE PAVEMENTS OVER A PERIOD OF A YEAR. ONLY PERFORMANCES ARE SPECIFIED: THESE CONCERN BASICALLY THE LEVEL OF VISIBILITY AT NIGHT OR RETROREFLECTION, VISIBILITY DURING DAYLIGHT, DURABILITY OR RESISTANCE TO WEAR, COEFFICIENT OF LONGITUDINAL FRICTION AND DRYING TIME. SIMULTANEOUSLY, COMPLETE CHEMICAL ANALYSES OF THE PROPOSED PRODUCTS ARE CARRIED OUT FROM SAMPLES SUPPLIED BY THE MANUFACTURERS FOR LATER CHECKING. THE DATA FROM BOTH SOURCES, QUALITY TESTS AND CHEMICAL ANALYSES, ARE REGROUPED IN A FILE WITH COMPUTER ACCESS. THIS MAKES IT POSSIBLE WITH THE AID OF A SIMPLE INTERROGATION PROGRAM, TO MAKE MAXIMUM USE OF ALL DATA IMPROVED EACH YEAR BY NEW TEST SERIES, TO DEMONSTRATE THE CORRELATIONS EXISTING BETWEEN THE BEHAVIOUR OF PRODUCTS AND THEIR COMPOSITION.
