The Magic Behind Long-Lasting Road Markings

Jul 8, 2024

Did you Know?

Ever wondered what keeps those road markings bright and durable through all kinds of weather and heavy traffic? The secret lies in a special ingredient called Teckros M series maleic modifier rosin ester resins. Here’s how these remarkable resins work their magic:

1. Superior Adhesion and Durability: The Teckros M series resins significantly improve the adhesion of road marking paints to various surfaces, including asphalt and concrete. This ensures that the markings stay put despite the constant pressure from vehicles and the harsh effects of weather, making them last longer and perform better.

2. Enhanced Reflectivity: Bright and clear road markings are crucial for safety, especially at night or in poor weather conditions. Teckros M series resins help maintain the vividness and reflectivity of road markings, ensuring they remain highly visible to drivers. This special resin also provides improved adhesion to the tiny glass spheres that are used to create a reflective surface that appears much more clearly during inclement weather. This enhancement in and brightness & retro-reflectivity is key to safer driving experiences.

3. Optimal Film Formation and Quick Drying: Time is of the essence when it comes to road maintenance. Teckros M series resins aid in forming a smooth, uniform film that dries quickly. This reduces the time roads need to be closed for marking, minimizing traffic disruptions, and allowing roads to reopen faster after maintenance.

Thanks to the Teckros M series maleic modified rosin ester resins, our roads are marked with high-quality, long-lasting, and highly visible lines that help keep us safe on our journeys. Next time you see those bright, clear road markings, you’ll know a little bit about the science that keeps them looking great!
