Do you need a waterbased line marking paint that has decent durability, meets US Federal specifications and drys fast? The Swarco 1140 series of line marking paints is a fantastic paint sold in bulk for big projects or contractors looking for a large supply of quality line striping paint to last them throughout the year.
The Swarco 1140 Series meets or exceeds the US Federal specification: TT-P-1952F Type I (Type 1) and it is a 100% acrylic waterborne traffic paint that is an economic solution for various pavement markings.
Listed on many states as an APL / QPL, you can buy in confidence knowing this specific formula is allowed to go down on state** highways, roads, and streets. It is also approved as a Federal paint for airport runways where higher-spec paints aren't called for, or it can just as well be used on parking lots. Basically anywhere asphalt or portland cement is used, this product will work just fine.
** Always check with your states APL / QPL before purchase. If Swarco paints aren't approved for your state but Ennis-Flint is, feel free to contact us for pricing on a comparable Ennis-Flint substitute. +1(800) 689-2098
Did we mention the "No Track" time of this paint is 90 seconds or less? Yeah, it's a super-fast drying paint. Keep that in mind if you're spreading glass beads by hand. The "no pickup time" (without glass beads) is 10 minutes or less and the full dry-through time is 2 hours or less @ 15mil thick, wet.
Another area you might be concerned with is the VOC limits which have become the primary force behind a lot of spec updates. The Federal spec requires the VOC limit to be less than or equal to 150 g/L. The 1140 series comes in at less than 100 g/L, so it's way under the federal limit for volatile organic compounds and designed to meet or exceed even a lot of the state-level specifications.
According to the federal spec, Type I is designed for use under normal conditions. OK, but what does that mean?
For use under normal weather conditions, i.e., 50% relative humidity, moderate temperatures and slight breezes. Not for use at the greater thickness required for the larger diameter Type IV beads.
In other words, 1952F Type I paint is very general use paint that is great for line marking and Type I or Type III glass beads. It has an economical durability rating with a slightly better price point.
What you're getting with this purchase, is a 250 gallon tote of paint.
Why buy a tote? If you know you'll need a lot of paint for a job or throughout the year, the tote is the most economical, not to mention an eco-friendly way to go. Buckets end up in the landfills but you can re-fill the same bucket over and over using a tote as long as you have a way of getting the tote higher than the bucket. Smart line striping professionals will buy a tote of paint and stick it on a 2 or 3 foot platform, high enough to get a bucket under the valve. They fill the buckets they need for the day and load them up. It's a great way to increase profits by buying in bulk, not to mention the saved trips to the paint store which eats into time.
