External Line Marker
Vendor: Virtus Resins
Line Marker is a two pack, chemical resistant paint suitable for use in external applications. Typically used in heavy duty outdoor areas where marking is required. Available in a gloss or silk finish.
Our line marker is an aliphatic solvent-based UV stable polyurethane coating. The cured coating exhibits excellent weathering properties and has excellent abrasion and chemical resistance.
Concrete, Render, Brick, Plasterboard, Steel and Aluminium.
Benefits & Features
- Excellent adhesion
- Hygienic sterile finish
- Highly chemical resistant
- 100% UV stable and will not change colour over time;
- Suitable for outdoor use;
- Barrier against heavy rain
- Protects against graffiti and damage caused by the removal of graffiti (gloss version only);
- Protects aluminum and steel from corrosion;
- Ideal for outdoor line marking and demarcation;
- Complies with F.D.A regulations for food process machinery in that they do not yellow or support bacterial growth.
- Car Parks
- Service Yards
- Road/ paving surfaces
- Commercial garages, vehicle repair and maintenance depots
- Aircraft hangers/runways
Surfaces to be treated must be sound free from oil or other contaminants, flaky paints, laitance and dust. Smooth and dense surfaces must be mechanically abraded to provide a key and all dust
Outdoor (can be used internally). Resistant to a wide range of acids and other chemicals.
~30 m² per 5kg (one coat).
Single coat application, or two coats if patchy (recommended).
Normally 16 hours at 20ºC for foot traffic
Hot water and detergents.
Cementitious Substrates: All substrates must be protected by an adequate and effective DPM. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. For concrete substrates, grinding or light vacuum contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems. Refer to the Virtus Guide to Surface Preparation.
Steel Substrates: Steel surfaces should be prepared to SA 2 ½ standard and coated immediately to prevent flash rusting.
Prior to mixing, the temperature both components should be between 15 and 20 ºC. Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (300 - 400 rpm) for at least 3 minutes until homogeneous. Keep the mixing paddle fully submerged to avoid the entrapment of air and scrape the sides and bottom of the vessel several times.
Important: Both liquids are pre-weighed and designed to be mixed together in their entirety. It is essential that the full amounts are mixed together and until homogenous to ensure the product cures correctly and to the desired finish.
Can be applied by brush, short-nap roller or spray at a nominal rate of 0.15 kg/m² . After a minimum of 16 hours and before a maximum of 48 hours, apply a second coat at the same rate. A test area should be considered to establish coverage rates. Coverage rates will vary over a textured surface.
Ensure that material is not applied more than once or overlapped in any area and apply in one direction only. If the thickness of the applied material is uneven, the surface may have an uneven appearance due to differences in gloss. Avoid pooling as this will lead to solvent entrapment and un-cured areas.
Note! Care should be taken when applying the material that a wet edge is maintained and that application is completed within the open time of the material. It is extremely important that the wet film thickness of the coating is constant throughout the application and rolling onto partially cured material and applying material more than once is avoided, this can result in an uneven or patchy finish of the coating system. Apply the material in one direction only and avoid ponding as this can create solvent entrapment and uncured areas of material.
Do not apply subsequent coats until the previous coat is cured. This will depend on temperature, atmospheric humidity and degree of ventilation. Adequate ventilation and air movement is necessary.
If applying by spray, suitable respiratory protective equipment should be worn by all exposed persons. If, when cured, there are dry patches, a further coat may be required.
