Road marking maintenance equipment: the paint

Road markings play a fundamental role in the safety of all types of streets and roads, whether traffic or pedestrian only. In this respect, horizontal signs placed on different roadways take on a rather special meaning.

The main objectives of the development of such signs are to protect road users, to ensure their safety and to organize the constant flow of traffic. Therefore, to ensure the durability and good maintenance of these signs, certain paints are used which are specially designed for road signs.

At T2S Ibérica, we have a long and established track record of providing our customers with top quality road marking maintenance equipment. How to make an efficient asphalt repair is no secret to us.

Essential paint characteristics

The paint for road markings must offer special characteristics that not all of them include. The most important of these are resistance to outdoor location, weather conditions, wear and tear from vehicle traffic, etc.

These paints may have been developed with different materials that are well known to some. They can be of both natural origin (within this group would be some such as chalk, silica, talc…) and synthetic origin (likewise, chalk or treated kaolins come into play). What is essential in this type of road marking maintenance equipment is the possibility of including resins and plasticizers to give them greater adhesion capacity.

Other fundamental characteristics of all road marking paints are:

  • Quick drying time

  • Good adhesion
  • Optimum light and rain fastness
  • Durability over time
  • Resistance to abrasion

In the same way, to carry out a good maintenance of the road markings, numerous campaigns of auscultation and repainting are carried out, as well as cleaning by sweeping and sweeping. You will find all the road marking painting equipment you may need at T2S Ibérica.

Road marking maintenance equipment: the essential tools

In the T2S Ibérica catalogue, you will find various products for the correct marking of road markings:

  • Ribline, is a thermoplastic sound guide made of embedded glass spheres. When danger is near, it causes a vibration at the steering wheel that serves as a warning signal.

  • Vizbility (complementary to the previous one), are pre-marked lines and are very resistant. Several glass beads are embedded and evenly spread over the surface.

To facilitate the application of these materials in our company, we have a special tool at our disposal. The torch used to melt these components is called a gas burner. In this way, we can achieve the desired application temperatures.
