WATER-BORNE ROAD MARKING PAINT

The objectives of the project were to evaluate water-borne road marking paint with a view to the eventual replacement of solvent-borne paint and to assess the performance of water-borne paint as a medium for the non-skid road marking paint system. This project was undertaken in a number of stages. A survey of the Australian market was carried out, which led to the submission of six products for evaluation. These were subjected to a series of laboratory and field tests in order to assess their performance against solvent-borne paint. A further seven products, submitted as a direct result of feedback to the manufacturers on the performance of their products, in the initial evaluation, were also tested. In addition, application equipment for water-borne paint, and utilisation of the paint in a non-skid paint system, were also addressed. Water-borne road marking paints are ready for introduction for day to day marking operations in South Australia, as a replacement for solvent-borne paint. The extent of replacement will be dependent upon field experience during periods of inclement weather, and operational experience with the products. (a)
