5 Gallon Chlorinated Rubber Alternative Marking Paint TT-P-115F Type 2
- Perfect for curb marking, parking lines or traffic arrows
- US Federal specification TT-P-115F Type II
- Solvent based paint
- Fast drying times
Chlorinated rubber paint was once a popular paint paint that was higher quality and dried fast. The down side to the chlorinated rubber paints was that it was high in VOCs and could become very combustible if the conditions were right. Many industry manufacturers and government specification boards have moved away from the chlorinated rubber paints in favor of much safer and low VOC alternatives. In fact, the US government canceled the TT-P-115F paint specification back in July 1999 with "No Replacement". This doesn't mean you can't still find paints that meet the TT-P-115F specification though, and that's exactly what our Chlorinated Rubber Alternative paint is designed to do. It closely adheres to the TT-P-115F Type 2 federal specification but leaves out all of the nasty components and replaces them with newer and much better materials.
One of the properties of the Type II federal specification is that it must be a fast drying paint. Our Chlorinated Rubber Alternative paint still matches the Type II specification and dries fast. This makes it a great high quality paint for line striping or zone marking where fast drying times are crucial. If conditions are good (cooler weather with moderate to high humidity), you can expect a 15 minute maximum dry time and even less when conditions are great (warmer weather with moderate to low humidity)
This is a solvent based paint which means you will need to have a cleaning agent such as toluene or mineral spirits handy to remove any excess paint from you or your equipment.
Our solvent oil based paint can be used on both asphalt and concrete but it is NOT recommended as turf marking or field marking paint. We carry a line of grass paint that is specifically designed for that environment. Contact us for details or visit our field marking website for grass paints.
If you are unsure if you need an oil based or a water based paint, it really just comes down to preference. Many of the north eastern states like to buy oil based / solvent based paint because it won't freeze in the winter time which means they can apply it in colder weather. Another reason people like the oil based over the water based comes down to the mindset that they have "always just used oil based paint".
Many municipalities and cities are beginning to ban oil based paint because it's not as environmentally friendly as the water based, so make sure you are in compliance before buying this type of paint.
Understanding the coverage of the paint is an important factor when line striping. The typical airless line striper will produce a line that is 15 mils in thickness, but first, how thick is 15 mils, second, what if I'm not using an airless line striper and third, what about the surface condition? Actual coverage of this paint can be found in the Specifications tab.
How thick is 15 mils?
Well, 1 mil stands for "1 Thousandth of an Inch". It's small. So, 15 mils is 15 thousandth of an inch which is the same as 1/64 of an inch. To give an idea of how thick 15 mils really is, we'll show you a few common items and their thickness:
- Typical Credit Card: 30 mils (.030 in) [0.762 mm]
- US Dollar Bill: 5 mils (.005 in) [0.127 mm]
- Finger Nail: 13 mils (.013 in) [.3302 mm]
So, if you take 3 crisp US currancy bills and stack them together, you will have 15 mils of thickness, or you can look at the thickness of your (unpainted) fingernail for a quick reference.
What if I'm not using an airless striper?
When using a roller or brush to apply paint, the thickness will vary between the roller style and how much paint you actually put down. The main rule of thumb though, is that you will double the amount of paint. Using a roller usually applies a thicker coat of paint. In some cases, if you're conservative with how much you put down, you can acually use less paint.
What do I need to know about the surface condition?
The surface area of section you will paint can also make a big difference with how much paint you use. Especially if you aren't using an airless paint system. Rough pavement like older ashpalt that has a lot of agregate showing, has a larger surface area and will take more paint. In contrast, a smooth concrete surface has a lower surface area and won't take as much paint. We don't have a guide or calculator at this time to take the different surfaces into consideration, just know that you might need a bit more paint if you're painting a rough area.
