Line marking on roads plays an important safety role. They direct motorists and pedestrians and help prevent accidents. If you're marking a road, you have to find a solution that works both immediately and into the future. This is a long-term deal. MMA line marking that incorporates reactive methyl methacrylate resin compounds is a viable solution here. What are the benefits?
1. Easy Application
If a road needs line marking, then you have to move quickly. You can't leave a busy road without safety or directional lines if people will use it. Closing the road down causes traffic problems.
Some marking methods take more time than others. You may have to wait for good weather to do the job. Markings also take time to set.
Paints or plastics that contain MMA are easy to apply. They stick to just about any surface and you can even work with them in cold weather. They also dry quickly. So, you can get markings down and get traffic moving safely again quickly.
2. Increased Toughness
Some line markings work well on roads for a while but don't stay in good shape for the long-term. The constant pressure of vehicles driving over the lines starts to wear them down. Paint may come off or fade in the sun. When you get to this stage, you may need to redo the job to make the road safe again.
You'll want to choose a marking material that can withstand the effects of even busy and heavy traffic and that will stay bright and clear even if the sun beats down on them during the day. If you want tough lines, then MMA markings might be the best option.
3. Better Night Visibility
Night visibility is important on roads. Most marking materials have retroreflective beading. These beads make lines stand out on the road by reflecting light back at drivers, which is especially useful on dark rural stretches. Sometimes marking will lose their retroreflective beading, which will decrease night visibility.
Choose a marking solution holds a large number of retroreflective beads so that the lines stay visible for as long as possible. If you enhance visibility at night, your roads are safer.
