HOT-APPLIED THERMOPLASTIC ROAD MARKING MATERIALS

This British standard specifies white and yellow thermoplastic materials which are melted and applied hot to roads, by screeded or sprayed application, as thin superimposed markings for centre lines, edge lines, pedestrian crossing stripes and the like; it does not apply to thermoplastic materials intended to be inset into the road surface. Section one deals with general matters, section two with the material to be supplied whilst section three covers the application of the material to the road. The material consists of a light coloured aggregate, pigment and extender, bound together with a thermoplastic resin, plasticized as necessary. Reflectorization with ballotini of a suitable grading may be used to improve the visibility of road markings at night. /TRRL/
