Cold applied marking have become more popular with many councils and customers requesting cold applied markings of late. The reason cold applied is becoming so popular is because it leaves almost a identical result as hot applied thermoplastic.
Cold applied consists of 2 components of material(Pigmented resin base and a catalyst) The product cures when the 2 components touch or mix. It can be applied by machine or by mixing the 2 components together.
Cold applied is also wear resistant and has a low dirt pickup which ensures the lines look newer for longer. Both cold applied and hot applied use glass beads which improve night time visibility.
Cold applied can be installed in a few different methods.
Please let us know if you require a line marking quotation. Our estimator and project managers are happy to assist you.
The first is machine – Cold applied can be installed using a 2 in 1 machine which hold both tins of cold applied, the material is then activated at the point of exit from the spray nozzles, 2 nozzles will spray material that touches and activates before application on the floor.
The second is by trowel/ screed – This method requires preparation of the floor by taping down the line locations before application. Taping down prior to screeding ensures everything is correct before the paint touches the ground. Once the tape process is completed we will then mix the 2 components together, once this is done we are ready to pour the mix onto the ground and trowel it onto the surface. Once the troweling/ screeding is complete we will quickly remove the tape markings leaving you with the finished product applied to the floor.
