The following information has been provided as a general guideline for the
use and disposal of Aexcel traffic marking paints. It is also very
beneficial to run a small test in a non-critical area in order to ensure
the surface preparation, weather conditions, equipment and product are
suitable and working properly.
Care should be taken to ensure that the surface is clean, dry and free of
loose material. A simple leaf-blower is typically sufficient to remove
gravel and dust in most instances. When applying over previously coated
areas, however, take special care to remove any loose or peeling paint.
Other surface conditions, such as areas with large amounts of engine oil
build-up or existing epoxy coatings, may require a power washing procedure
or abrading the surface before application of the paint. New concrete and
asphalt should be aged for a minimum of 30 days prior to painting. Use
caution when striping over a freshly sealed surface. Sealers can affect
the adhesion and cure of traffic marking paints. For more information on
the surface, please consult with the supplier or applicator of the surface.
WEATHER CONDITIONS AND APPLICATION
Air temperature, surface temperature, humidity and weather conditions
following application are extremely important factors in the success of the
products. Aexcel formulates these coatings to be applied without further
reduction. They can also be used in conjunction with the application of
glass beads to improve reflectivity without sacrificing other properties.
Protect fresh lines from traffic until thoroughly dry. These, as well as
all water-based coatings should not be applied at temperatures below
60°F,when the relative humidity is greater than 80% and/or less than
24 hr. before any expected precipitation. Evening and night applications
should be avoided whenever possible due to the cooler temperature.
At lower temperatures or when humidity is extremely high, a significant
amount of extra time will be needed for the paints to dry.
Tip size, fluid pressure, atomizing air pressure, paint viscosity and paint
temperature are all critical to the appearance, consistency, and performance
of the paint. The equipment must be matched to the paint being applied in
order to achieve the proper film thickness and coverage. When using a water-
based product, the equipment must be made with stainless steel or some other
material that will not react with the paint and cause application or storage
problems. Typical tip sizes for "airless" machines are .019' - .021", while
"air atomized" machines use .086 - .11" at 60 lbs. pressure. For more
information please consult the equipment manufacturer.
PAINT SELECTION AND SAFETY
Protect these and all water-based coatings from freezing. Use only paint
recommended or specified for each application. Shelter the containers when
possible and avoid prolonged outside storage. Agitation of the paints by
stirring or shaking should be performed to ensure uniform consistency,
application and performance. When storing partially filled containers, a
small amount of water may be added and allowed to stand on top in order to
avoid "skinning". Always be sure the containers are sealed tightly during
transportation or storing in order to avoid spilling, risk of fire and
solvent evaporation. Keep paints away from heat and flame. Consult the
MSDS sheets and/or labels for further safety, personal protection, first-aid
and spill or leak procedures.
Comply with all regulations regarding handling, storage, and disposal of
all hazardous materials and waste. Consult local agencies or disposal
companies for individual instructions and requirements. IMPROPER DISPOSAL
OF PAINT AND THEIR RELATED MATERIALS IS ILLEGAL AND MAY RESULT IN LARGE
FINES. Please comply with all regulations and minimize waste whenever
