TRAFFIC PAINTS BASED ON EPOXY RESINS

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD ADHESION, CHEMICAL RESISTANCE, AND INHERENT TOUGHNESS FOUND IN EPOXY RESIN SURFACE COATINGS ARE NOW WELL KNOWN. THESE SAME DESIRABLE PROPERTIES CAN BE INCORPORATED READILY INTO TRAFFIC MARKING PAINTS EXHIBITING EXCELLENT DURABILITY. TWO GENERAL CLASSES OF EPOXY RESIN- BASED TRAFFIC PAINTS ARE DISCUSSED: THE AMINE-CURED TYPE AND THE ESTER TYPE. FIELD TEST EXPERIENCE WITH BOTH TYPES OF PAINT IS COVERED, SHOWING RELATIVE ADVANTAGES OF EACH TYPE. INCLUDED IS A BRIEF DISCUSSION OF SOLVENT-FREE EPOXY RESIN COATINGS AS A NEW APPROACH TO TRAFFIC STRIPING PAINTS. SPECIAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES ALLOW EFFICIENT APPLICATION OF THICK DURABLE MARKING PAINTS. /AUTHOR/
