UltraStripe is a three component sprayable methyl-methacrylate (MMA) resin, applied with a specialist airless spray machine. It provides the benefits of a high performance MMA line marking, combined with a rapid application rate.UltraStripe is designed to be compatible with most of the surfaces that require line-marking paints to be applied, such as roads, car parks, airfield runways, docks, container ports, platforms, distribution & logistics centres. This includes asphalt and concrete surfaces, monoblocks, pavers and other cementitious surfaces.As a totally cold-applied system, with no hot works, it is also frequently used in sensitive areas such as fuel stations and other hot-work sensitive sites.
Features and Benefits
- Fast cure time
- Strong and durable line
- Very fast application
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 – weathered - It is recommended that asphalt and other similar surfaces be allowed to through harden for up to 6 months before painting. Test trials should be carried out in the first instance on a small area.
Concrete & other cementitious surfaces, including powerfloat, tamped or brushed concrete, monoblocks & pavers – Ensure surface is sound, clean and free from laitance. We recommend a preparation method suitable for the specific location and surface is carried out before application of product, to ensure surface is properly prepared back to clean and sound substrate.
Examples of preparation methods that may be suitable are captive shot blasting, diamond grinding, scabbling or planing. It is critical that utmost attention is paid to cleanliness and good workmanship, whatever preparation method is used, as the presence of any loose material, dust, soiling or previous coatings are likely to reduce adhesion of new coatings.
New concrete should be left to harden before coating, as the curing process and residual moisture content can lead to product delamination if coated too early.
Weathered asphalt & tarmacadam - no primer required
New asphalt & tarmacadam - we do not recommend coating until weathered, but if it is necessary we suggest the use of UltraNuvo primer
Concrete, pavers & monoblocks - use UniPrime primer
it is very important to avoid any cross-contamination of product, as this is likely to cause premature curing - we recommend using two mixing paddles to prevent any cross-contamination of the products and a power stirrer should be used.
Firstly stir Part A - this is now ready to be used and can be put onto the spray machine.
Part B should be thoroughly stirred, then the powder catalyst should be added to it, as supplied, and thoroughly stirred in.
IT is VERY IMPORTANT that parts A & B are kept separate and not mixed in any way.
This product must be applied with specialist dual-pump airless spray equipment, such as the Meon 2CS or AR30 machines. Follow specific machine guidelines.
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.
