Waterborne Paints Supplier China

Waterborne paints represent a sustainable road marking material that employs water as a carrier for pigments, binders, and additives. It offers an eco-friendly alternative to conventional solvent-based paints, which utilize aromatic hydrocarbons.

Water-based Road Marking Paint Specification LT-CWBP

Cold paint is typically applied using low-pressure air or high-pressure airless spraying equipment, in conjunction with a glass bead dispenser to ensure nighttime reflection of the markings. Our LT-CWBP water-based road paint serves construction and maintenance purposes for highways, new primary and secondary road markings, as well as refurbishing existing ones. It stands as an environmentally-conscious product.

Waterborne Road Paints Highlights

  • Environmentally Friendly: Low VOC emissions, high solid content (usually around 77%), minimal gas emissions, and water-based solvents. This results in minimal environmental impact during production and application.
  • Rapid Drying: Surface drying time of 5-10 minutes under different climates minimizes road closure time and pollution during construction.
  • Reflectivity: Strong adhesion with glass beads allows for reflectivity up to 300-400MCD, enhancing nighttime visibility.
  • Easy Construction: Minimal equipment requirements and easy cleaning streamline the application process.
  • Durability: Urban lifespan of over 1.5 years and potentially over 2 years on highways.

All Cold Applied Road Paint Types

  1. Epoxy Paints: Durable, resistant to chemicals, abrasion, and weathering. Suitable for high-traffic areas.
  2. Water-Based Road Paints: Quick-drying, fade-resistant, and weather-resistant.
  3. Chlorinated Rubber Paints: Durable and chemical/abrasion-resistant, ideal for industrial areas.
  4. MMA Paints: Provide wear and weather-resistant high-visibility markings.

When selecting cold paint for road markings, consider application requirements, durability, and environmental factors. Types include water-based acrylic, chlorinated rubber, epoxy, and methyl methacrylate (MMA) paints.

  1. Water-based acrylic paints are common, easy to apply, quick-drying, and resistant to fading and weathering.
  2. Chlorinated rubber paints are durable, resistant to chemicals and abrasion, and suitable for industrial areas.
  3. Epoxy paints are highly durable, resistant to chemicals, abrasion, and weathering, ideal for high-traffic or harsh environments.
  4. MMA paints dry fast and are highly durable, suitable for cold climates and heavy traffic areas.

Consider project-specific requirements like lifespan, traffic volume, and environmental impact. Adhere to applicable regulations and guidelines.

In summary, the choice of cold paint for road markings depends on application, durability, and environmental considerations. Evaluate the pros and cons before deciding.

How to do Cold Paints Line Striping with Waterborne Paints? Tools & Steps

A cold marking machine is a specialized piece of equipment used to apply cold paint road markings. The machine typically consists of a paint tank, an applicator, and a control system. The paint is pumped from the tank through the applicator, which applies the paint to the road surface. The control system can be used to regulate the flow and thickness of the paint.

Cold marking machines are available in various sizes and configurations to suit different applications. Some machines are designed for smaller projects or areas where access is limited, while others are designed for larger projects or high-volume applications.

Waterborne Paints for Line Stripings FAQs

Cold paint is considered to be more environmentally friendly than other types of road marking materials, such as solvent-based paints. Cold paint is typically water-based and contains lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making it a more sustainable option.

Regular maintenance is important to ensure that cold paint markings remain visible and effective. This includes cleaning the markings regularly, repairing any damage or fading, and reapplying the paint as needed.

The lifespan of water-based road marking paint varies depending on the traffic volume, climate, and maintenance practices. Generally, it can last between one and five years or more, depending on the quality of the paint and the conditions it is exposed to.

Using cold paint offers several benefits, including ease of use, versatility, and affordability. Cold paint is easy to apply and does not require preheating, making it a convenient option for smaller projects or areas where preheating is not possible. Additionally, cold paint can be used on a variety of surfaces and is typically more affordable than thermoplastic material.

Packaged in filled iron drums, with a net weight of 25kg per drum.

Yes, water-based paint can be used to create various road markings, such as lane markings, arrows, symbols, and crosswalks. It can also be applied in different colors to convey different messages or identify designated areas.

Water-based road marking paint can be removed using specialized equipment, such as water jetting or mechanical grinders. It is typically easier to remove than solvent-based paint without damaging the road surface or causing environmental harm.

Water-based road marking paint should be stored above freezing temperatures and protected from direct sunlight or heat sources. It should be properly mixed and stirred before use to ensure consistent application and to prevent clogging or settling of the pigment. The paint should not be allowed to freeze or become too hot, as this may alter its properties and performance.

Water-Dispersible Road Marking Paint Construction Process:

  1. When there is oil, dust, mud, and other dirt on the road surface, the dirt should be cleaned up and a matching undercoat should be used to keep the road surface dry.
  2. The construction temperature should be above 10℃, and the relative humidity should be below 80%.
  3. Water-based paint is soluble in water before drying, but it is not easy to remove once it is cured. Therefore, after construction, the equipment must be cleaned. Incorrect markings can be washed with plenty of water before drying.
  4. Water should not be added to dilute the paint during construction, otherwise it will affect the drying speed and film-forming properties. Do not stir for a long time or at high speeds to prevent the paint from producing a large number of bubbles and reducing viscosity.
  5. If there is an interruption in construction, the nozzle should be rotated and closed in time, and the nozzle should be immersed in a small bucket of 5% concentration of ammonia water.
  6. If it is forecasted to rain within 2 hours after construction, the road surface is damp due to rain or dew, the construction attachments (such as water, tools, safety signs, etc.) are not ready, or the equipment operator is not proficient, construction should not be carried out.
