Our waterborne TT-P 1952E Type III paint has the same great fast drying time of our TT-P-1952E Type I paint (10 min or less*), but it is specifically designed with more solids to be an even stronger, more durable paint. While the TTP 1952E Type III paint can be used for all sorts of pavement marking needs where fast drying time is crucial, we highly recommend this paint for airports and contractors needing a high quality, durable, fast drying paint. This paint is perfect for airport runways and taxi ways, or in commercial applications where high traffic demand requires high durability with an absolute minimum amount of application time.
*Dry times will vary, depending on relative humidity and temperature.
Our Fast-Dry waterborne paint is NOT recommended for "roller" style line stripers like our Rollmaster Econo 1000 or Rollmaster 5000. Since those systems are low pressure delivery systems, the mechanism which delivers the paint to the roller and the roller itself, will become clogged with paint causing you a big mess and undesired frustration. If you are interested in either one of those systems, we recommend that you purchase our normal dry water based paint instead. If you have a high pressure sprayer, this paint will work fine in those systems but may cause faster clogging at the tip.
As far as surfaces go, our fast-dry waterborne 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 paint that is specifically designed for that environment. Contact us for details or visit our field marking website for grass paints.
We only sell paint that is guaranteed to be top quality commercial parking lot, curb and traffic paint. Our paint will equally match and usually beats anything you can buy at the store. We ship all of our paint straight from the manufacturing plant which means your paint is fresh by the time you get it, unlike the paint that might sit on the store shelf for a few months.
Use this paint anywhere you might need fast drying Federal Specification traffic paint such as parking lots, curbs or roads. If you aren't sure whether you need a fast drying paint or not, the question you want to ask yourself is: "Do I need multiple coats and or do I need traffic on my parking lot in less than an hour?" If you answered yes to either or both of these questions, you will want FAST-DRY paint. If you have time to let the paint dry, you will probably want our regular and less expensive
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.
1 mil stands for "1 Thousandth of an Inch". It's small. So, 15 mils

Custom Gray Colors
There are so many different shades of gray, it is difficult for us to offer a "base gray" color of paint, and have it match your environment. As suggested from our supplier, we recommend that you purchase both "White" and "Black" colors, then mix them together to achieve the color of gray you need. We understand this presents additional cost for the project and we apologize for the inconvenience, however, if you aren't picky about the color of gray you need, feel free to browse our Custom Color Palette and choose a gray.
