1. Asphalt surface must be dry, free from dust, oil and loose materials.
2. Roadex thermoplastic paint can be applied by screed application at 190°C ± 10°C and spray application at 210°C ± 10°C. Special marking can be applied manually.
3. Roadex TP is heated at 190°C ± 10°C in a pre-heater (Boiler).
4. Roadex TP bags are to be put into the boiler one by one, so the material is melted and mixed properly. The material is allowed to mix for few minutes at temperature of 180°C ± 10°C to give flow able viscosity, before shifting it to application machine.
5. Spray glass beads over the fresh hot marking @ 400-500 gm/sqm.
