How would you like to have a waterbased paint that is versatile enough to be usable in a bunch of different scenarios and still have excellent performance?  The Swarco 1160 Series is designed around the TT-P-1952F Type II (Type 2) US Federal specification which dictates the paint must be usable in a variety of conditions.  In fact, the Swarco 1160 series exceeds some of the Federal specifications in order to meet certain state requirements.

According to the federal spec, Type II is designed for use under adverse conditions.  Ok, but what does that mean?

For use under adverse conditions, i.e., night striping, higher humidity (around 80%), low air movement and lower surface temperatures, down to 10°C (50°F). Not for use at the greater thickness required for the larger diameter Type IV beads.

In other words, 1952F Type II is a fantastic paint for jobs that call for adverse weather, or maybe climates that are more humid than others.  It's also designed for Type I or Type III glass beads but won't work well with Type IV glass beads.

The Swarco 1160 series is a 100% acrylic waterbased paint that is formulated to deliver extraordinary performance and be a fast-drying paint across a broad range of application conditions.

Listed with 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

So who should use this paint?  Since it is approved by many states, it's ideal for state workers or contract construction crews working for the state to be used on highways and roads.  It's also great for cities, counties and even small contractors looking for quality paint who want to save buying in bulk.  Really, it's a great all-around paint for anyone in the line-marking industry.

As far as surfaces go, you can use the 1160 series paints on highways, roads/streets, parking lots and airport taxiways or runways where the 1952F Type III spec isn't explicitly called for.

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 1160 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.

What you're getting with this purchase, is a full pallet of 5-gallon pails yielding 32 buckets for a total of 160 gallons of paint.  This product is only available in full pallet quantities however upon special request, we can mix-and-match the colors within the pallet.  The price may vary slightly on mix-and-match orders so feel free to call for a quote if you need a variety of colors +1(800) 689-2098

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Mix and Match Colors On The Pallet?

One big question we get asked a lot about this paint is whether the colors can be mixed and matched on the pallet. For example, you may way to order 20 buckets of yellow and 12 buckets of white.

We DO offer mix-and-match colors on the pallets however the price may be slightly different than buying a pallet with single colors. Red pigment is extremely expensive which makes red paints cost more. We can't send out a pallet of half red and half yellow paint without charging more. Hopefully this makes sense and we appreciate your understanding.

At this time, all mix and match orders have to be placed as a phone order: +1(800) 689-2098

Can I Order Less Than A Pallet?

At this time, less than a full pallet order is not permitted.  We are working closely with the manufacturer to provide lesser quantities however they have not given us a timeframe on when this might be available.
