    Abstract

    This guide covers the selection and use of procedures for testing traffic paints in the laboratory and in the field. This guide covers the testing of a ready-mixed paint product of sprayable consistency that shall be suitable for use as a reflecting traffic guide on paved roadways. Tests shall be performed in accordance with the following test methods: liquid paint properties; application and appearance properties; properties of the dried film; analysis of paint; and field evaluations. Conditions, such as: substrate type; climatic conditions; service density; traffic type; and presence of foreign matter on the road surface, may affect traffic paint.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers the selection and use of procedures for testing traffic paints in the laboratory and in the field.

    1.2 This guide covers the testing of ready-mixed solvent base and waterborne paint products of sprayable consistency that shall be suitable for use as a reflecting traffic guide on paved roadways.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
