Our Fast-Dry 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 water 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 paint that is specifically designed for that environment. Contact us for details or visit our field marking website for grass paints.

Use this paint anywhere you might need fast drying Federal Specification traffic paint such as parking lots, curbs or roads.

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 area.
Well, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Short Answer: yes - You can add sand or abrasives to the paint without damaging the chemical makeup of the paint.
We personally recommend that you add sand or abrasives to the paint by hand though, especially if you are applying stripes with a line striping machine. Abrasive materials tend to clog the spray tip or paint applicator which is why we recommend adding abrasives by hand instead of adding it to the paint. Check with your line striping manufacturer before adding any type of abrasives to the paint.
Short Answer: No - Our paint is specifically made with pressure line striping machines in mind. You can also use this paint with roller style line stripers as well.
Short Answer: Yes - The paint we offer is especially designed as "road marking paint". Pretty much any type of asphalt or concrete surface you want to use this product on, it will adhere to (including sealcoated surfaces). One thing to keep in mind, is that our paints all meet "Federal Specifications". If the Government didn't sign off on our paint as road worthy, we wouldn't be selling it.
Simple Answer: No - Field marking paint has a special formula to be environmentally safe on real grass. It is also designed to be easy to remove from both grass turf and fake field turf. If you're interested in field marking paint, we do offer it but don't have it on our website. Call us for more information: +1(800) 689-2098
