Spectrum VersaLine is a high solids, fast-drying waterbased line marking paint formulated specifically for airless spray equipment. VersaLine provides a viable alternative to the use of solvent based products and has been developed in close collaboration with airless spray machine users, to overcome traditional problems of spraying waterbased products using airless systems. Spectrum VersaLine has high opacity and good coverage rates, making it anideal line marking paint use on highways, docks, airfields and carparks; it is also widely used in food preparation and storage areas.The waterbased formulation removes the need for solvent thinner handling, storage and disposal. Can be oversealed for internal floors where gloss finish is required to minimise soiling.
Features and Benefits
- Removes requirement for solvent thinners
- Non-hazardous product
- Fast drying for rapid return to traffic
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/previously applied coatings.
Tarmacadam – 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.
Primers: Not generally required but a thinned first coat can be used if surface is particularly absorbent.
Stir thoroughly before using.
Thinning: This product is supplied ready to use and need not be thinned. If thinning is required, clean water should be used, up to 20% by volume.
We recommend the use of airless spray equipment. Roller or brushes can be also be used if spray equipment not available, but will not achieve a good level of finish due to the specific formulation of the product
