On the road to eco-friendliness


The eco-friendliness of road markings is acknowledged more and will become a key driver for future purchase decisions.


Various issues that have appeared on the agenda of policy makers in the past decade, like the increased awareness of climate change and its negative effects, have led to an improved comprehension of how important a preserved environment is. Thus, reducing pollution and other environmental hazards caused by increased traffic volumes has become a major concern across countries worldwide including the road marking industry. Purchasing decisions in the public sector will and should be more and more driven by a growing demand for greener products and solutions.
DEGAROUTE® based road markings are reactive systems that are considered solvent-free. They produce nearly no VOCs and do not require heat for application. Additionally, due to their higher durability, less applications are required over time, thuscontributing to resource efficiency.
