HEMPEL’S TRAFFIC PAINT 584FS
SURFACE Surface to be marked should be clean and dry. This may be accomplished by blowing
PREPARATION: away all dust and loose dirt with high pressure air, before coating application.
APPLICATION As dictated by normal, good painting practice.
REMARKS: Use up to 12 kg. of glass spheres (HEMPEL’S GLASS BEADS 97770) per 20 litres of paint.
The spheres may be dispersed onto the wet paint surface of the traffic line by the “drop-on”
method or incorporated in the paint before application to the road surface (“pre-mix” method).
The first method gives immediate and continuing reflection while under the second method,
traffic abrasion soon exposes the spheres and reflection commences and continues.
Note: HEMPEL’S TRAFFIC PAINT 584FS is for professional use only.
