MagmaLine R110 is a preformed thermoplastic material which has good visibility in day or night conditions and excellent skid resistance. The intermixed glass beads and anti-skid particles which are incorporated on top and within the material ensure high performance throughout its functional life. Traditionally used for utility reinstatement, MagmaLine R110 can be used for new road markings, pavements, rail platforms, car parks, step edgings and more as the growth of “self-delivery” lines continues.
Features and Benefits:
- Instant reflectivity
- Consistent quality
- Zero waste
- Low application costs
- Fast return to service
- Minimal disruption
SURFACE PREPARATION: The application surface should be sound and clean, free from grease, oil, rust, scale, dirt, or any other soiling that might affect adhesion or performance. In any case, but especially in the case of overcoating existing line markings, it is further recommended that test areas be coated to ensure good adhesion and/or compatibility with the substrate. Asphalt - New and weathered asphalt is suitable.
Concrete - New concrete should be left to fully cure for a period of 3 months minimum.
Concrete Pavers - Application on pavers is suitable provided there is no movement, and gaps are less than 5mm without organic or loose material.
Pre-mark to show where product will be installed. Lay out product and cut to size, by scoring with sharp knife and gently bending back on itself to "snap" clean. Put product to one side. Use a gas torch, pre-heat surface where product is to be laid. This removes any moisture and provides a warm surface to enable bonding. Place the product in position and apply heat to preform thermoplastic at a height of 200mm to 300mm at 90° angle to the floor. Do not swing the torch. Avoid holding the torch in one place, as it will cause the product to scorch. Heat evenly to 180° - 200°C (use Meon Infrared Thermometer to monitor this). You will notice the product beginning to shrink/melt into the profiles of the surface. The edges will also ‘bevel off’ as it melts. Apply heat until the whole area is fully bonded to the surface. Do not apply when the air or surface temperature is below 5°C or less than 3°C above dew point, or if this is likely to occur during the curing period. Do not apply when there is rain, mist, fog, or snow imminent; when humidity is high or the surface is wet with condensation or likely to be during the drying period.
