Thermoplastic Extrude Alkyd Yellow (City/County)

RAE's Swarcotherm™ Thermoplastic is a pavement marking material that is a 100% solid, environmentally and user safe marking paint. It is a mixture of Swarco glass beads, pigments, binder, and filler materials. Thermoplastic, as its name suggests, becomes liquid when heat is applied.

Hot applied thermoplastic is prepared in a melting kettle where the granular material is heated until it liquefies at temperatures exceeding 375° F. An agitator keeps the thermoplastic blended until it is transferred into a screed, ribbon or spray device where it is then shaped into its specified width and thickness as a line, legend or symbol. Glass beads are immediately applied to provide initial retro-reflectivity.

When applied on asphalt surfaces, thermoplastic marking paint develops a thermal bond via heat-fusion. When applied on Portland Concrete Cement and on oxidized or aged asphaltic surfaces, and a recommended sealer is properly applied, a tenacious mechanical bond is achieved.

Product Description

The four main properties of thermoplastic are:

  • Glass beads - provide the retroreflectivity necessary for its bright night time appearance
  • Pigments - provide the color and opacity
  • Binder - a mixture of plasticizer and resins that provide toughness, flexibility, and bond strength while holding all the components together
  • Fillers - such as calcium carbonate, sand and/or other inert substances that provide bulk

Providing that all necessary conditions are met concerning temperature of material and substrate, absence of moisture, road preparation and minimum thickness, you can achieve excellent performance using thermoplastic pavement marking compounds. Typical performance life ranges from 4 to 8 years depending on roadway conditions.
