Pavement marking paint is a liquid superior marking substance used in traffic and safety marking system that are commonly used on roads and highways as well as warehouses, aircraft maintenance hangars and parking lots.
One top of the line pavement marking paint is the Liquid Superior Mark. This pavement sign paint is an improvement, which derives from Nano Lithium formulation and technology. It is water-based, environment friendly and has very low ammonia odor. It dries tough, it has a semi-gloss finished, and it cures rapidly that provides easy maintenance and long lasting protection from direct damage and exposure to harsh weather. Among its physical properties are: 6 months shelf life, viscous liquid available in myriad of colors, flash point inapplicability, low VOC content of 50 Water-based lithium silicate of this pavement marking paint shows an excellent water resistant property for optimum formulation and enhanced durability.
Liquid Superior Mark is a pavement sign paint that has several advantages from other leading pavement marking paint being currently offered in the market. It has a high performance quality that passes blistering, adhesion and discoloration test as well as gasoline, motor oil and abrasion resistance test made by the ASTM or American Society for Testing and Materials, an international standards organization that supervises and develops technical superior standards. It is formulated as an eco-friendly, solvent free paint with no harmful fumes, odors and vapors. It is non-flammable because it is water based and it is fast curing, making traffic only in hours and not days during road applications.
Most pavement marking paint comes in 5 gallon pails. It acts as a single component formulation that can be mixed mechanically before application. Safety rules must be followed at all times while using any pavement signing paint. Material Safety Data Sheet must be read first. Paint chemicals must be kept out of reach of children and personal protective equipment must be worn especially safety glasses and rubber gloves while applying the paint. Protect the paint chemical from freezing, it will become unstable and the quality will quickly degrade. Do not apply this pavement signing paint on any soft metals or glass materials. Use a sprayer or a roller to apply on any surface free from dirt, dust, grease and oil. It is recommended to air blast or vacuum the surfaces prior to application. It is not advisable to use pavement signing paint containing lithium silicates to surfaces previously applied with silicon based sealers. It will only repel the water based substance of the pavement marking paint rendering it ineffective when it comes to its adhesion properties.
Almost all pavement marking paint are derived from nanolithium technology. The formulation that penetrates deep into the micro grain surfaces of any pavement remains the trademark of almost all brand of pavement signing paint thereby making it an effective protection against wear and from other damaging environment. Its protection reduces maintenance interval making pavement marking paint cheaper than expected not in terms of quantity but of quality. It usually applied in a single coat and can be painted directly on a new toweled concrete. Lithium silicate's VOC is measured below 50 grams per liter that makes it less harmful to human health. VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compound.
As a testament to its superior paint quality, pavement marking paint usually comes with a warranty of replacement or refund for any defective applications provided that the product is used according to the directions stated. However, companies who manufactured pavement marking paint such as Liquid Superior Mark does not make any warranty with respect to its product's misuse. The pavement marking paint of today is well-researched and meticulously manufactured to maintain the quality and stability of surviving harsh weather and other elements that degrades other current pavement marking paint.
