AIRFIELD MARKING PAINTS STATE-OF-THE-ART
A state-of-the-art summary has been prepared on the subject of airfield marking paints. Information is presented on the composition of such paints, federal specifications, available test methods, reflectorization methods, deterioration mechanism, skid-resistance relationships, surface preparation, application requirements, and alternative marking systems. Information on traffic paints was used where it was relevant. A summary of recommended airfield marking practices was prepared to provide practical information to people responsible for airfield marking. While currently used airfield marking practices are considered adequate, improved materials and/or methods may significantly reduce maintenance costs and may be necessary for more restrictive regulations that are anticipated. /Author/
