Cold spray plastic –
cost-efficient road safety
The application of road markings has to offer versatility and productivity. DEGAROUTE® based cold plastic spray markings are a fast, cost-effective and environmentally friendly way of applying road markings.
A special binder formulation combined with appropriate pigments and fillers allow DEGAROUTE® based cold plastic road markings to be machine-sprayed on the surface of the road. This rapid application fits the common features of DEGAROUTE® road markings perfectly, turning spray road markings into a high-performance alternative to conventional traffic paints and other plural-component markings.
Because they are applied in extremely durable thin layers, DEGAROUTE® based cold plastic spray road markings are very quick to use and highly cost-effective.
Success story – Retroreflectivity for intersections and legends
Excellent presence and little wear – one year after applying DEGAROUTE® based markings, representatives of the city of Santa Ana, California are still pleased with the results.
In July 2010, the city decided to use cold plastic spray markings for approximately 150 “STOP” signs and bars. Prior to this, Santa Ana had used thermoplastic “thin sets” of ca. 0.8 mm (30 mils). Since the price of thermoplastic markings has increased significantly from material shortage, authorities are now considering alternative durable systems.
As the city of Santa Ana continues to monitor and evaluate DEGAROUTE® based markings for future use, this example already shows that cold plastic markings are highly durable and cost-efficient.
