This report documents the laboratory findings only of a study that was undertaken to find additives for conventional traffic marking paint that would make the paint stripe easy to remove by burning and thus make the pavement marking temporary in nature. At the end of the laboratory phase of the project it was the concensus of the Principal Investigator, the NCHRP Project Panel and the NCHRP Program Director that the program should be terminated. The reason for terminating the project midway in its existence was that it was found in the laboratory that the additives necessary to accomplsih the desired results carried with their use a degree of hazard to the personnel expected to use them that was greater than could be reasonably accepted. /Author/
