HOT-APPLIED THERMOPLASTIC ROAD MARKING MATERIALS. PART 1: SPECIFICATION FOR CONSTITUENT MATERIALS AND MIXTURES

This part of BS 3262 specifies the requirements for white, yellow and black thermoplastic road marking materials and their constituents that are melted and applied hot to road surfaces, using screeded or sprayed application, as thin superimposed layers for centre lines, edge lines, pedestrian crossing stripes, and similar applications. It does not apply to thermoplastic materials intended to be inserted into the road surface. The marking material consists of an aggregate which is light coloured except for black thermoplastic material, pigment and extender, bound together with a thermoplastic resin, plasticized as necessary. Provision is made for reflectorization using solid glass beads of a suitable grade complying with BS 6088, to improve the visibility of road markings. British Standard BS 3262 is published in three parts and supercedes the 1987 edition, which is now withdrawn. For the abstracts of parts 2 and 3 see IRRD 828358 and 828488.
