Ennis-Flint’s Pavemark is and alkyd extrude thermoplastic for pavement marking that is a 100% solids material blend of binder, pigments, and glass beads. Pavemark is melted to a temperature of at least 425°F (218°C) in a melting kettle, mixed well and then applied in a molten / liquid state to the pavement.
Roadway surface temperature at the time of application should typically be a minimum of 50°F (10°C) and rising due to the quick setting nature of the cooled material once applied. Upon cooling to normal pavement temperature, thermoplastic provides a very durable marking material for low and high volume traffic areas which makes it an excellent product for both longevity and cost savings.
Pavemark is designed to be used in Thermoplastic Extruders such as the Titan ThermoMark 300 and melted in a kettle with agitation for best mixing results.
Thermoplastic is sold in one-ton increments (2000 pounds). The ton is divided into 40 heat degradable bags each weighing approximately 50 pounds.
The shelf life of the product is one year from date of manufacture with proper storage. Proper storage includes inside or covered to prevent from moisture, and below 120F. Outside storage for short intervals is acceptable as long as the material is kept dry. The older the material, more agitation and dwell time is required to fully melt and mix the granular ingredients.
Conditions for Application:
All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease, antifreeze, loose sand, aggregate and chipping/peeling existing striping. Any curing compounds used on new concrete must be mechanically abraded off prior to striping and use of a primer is strongly suggested. Concrete should be allowed to cure for 14 days. When in doubt, always test adhesion. While thermoplastic may be installed behind the paver once the mat cools, new asphalt should be allowed to cure for a minimum of 14 days to maximize adhesion and durability.
One-Ton of thermoplastic yields approximately 6000 feet of 4” stripe @ 90 mils – textured surfaces will decrease the coverage yield.
