Nordic certification of road marking materials in Norway and Sweden 2015-?2017

Nordisk certifiering av vägmarkeringsmaterial i Norge och Sverige 2015?-2017

A Nordic certification system for road marking materials was introduced in 2015. In the first stage, the certification system applies to the countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In these countries, a documented product approval will be required in order to use a road marking material on roads managed by the national road authorities. Product approval will be based on monitored and documented performance measurements of material samples applied on test fields on public roads. The first round of material tests in Sweden started in May 2015. In all, 81 materials, out of which 78 were for certification and 3 for manufacturer's internal test, were applied at the Swedish test site north of Sunne, in the west of Sweden. In 2016, another 72 materials were applied for certification at the Swedish test site. The present report documents the follow-up performance measurements that were carried out in 2017, i.e. one-year follow-up measurements for materials applied in 2016 and two years follow-up measurements for materials applied in 2015. The performance parameters include the coefficient of retroreflected luminance ( R L) under dry and wet conditions, the luminance coefficient under diffuse illumination ( Qd ), the friction, the chromaticity in daylight, and the chromaticity of retroreflected light (yellow materials, only).
