Cold Plastic Acrylic Resins
These resins are based on methacrylate monomers which are used for cold plastic marking paints. They are hard, durable, weather resistant and also resistant to some chemicals such as road salts and fuels. The binder contains paraffin which tends to float when stored for a long period of time at lower temperatures. Therefore, it must be homogenized before use by stirring. Tacryl RM965 is the main binder and Tacryl AC100 is used as an activator, which should be added to the paint right before application. This system will be hardened by adding dibenzoil peroxide and it is used for marking pedestrian crossings, stop lines, direction arrows and safety markings with increased night visibility. It’s suitable for manual application with smoothing trowels or draw boxes. Cold plastic materials are usually applied to asphalt and concrete surfaces in layer thickness of 1.5-2.5 mm. The system is totally solvent free so the thickness of wet and dried film is nearly the same. The reaction will be ended after 30 minutes and the coating will be ready to use.
