Research Institution
Our main objective will be to investigate and develop flexible, abrasion resistant, environmentally compliant, waterborne acrylic marking paint for use on asphaltic airfield pavements. The developed paint will have reduced shrinkage upon cure andbetter adhesion to asphalt surface than currently used paint. The improved paint will have good flow and wetting to provide durability and excellent physical properties that will prevent deficiencies such as curling and cracking when applied on newpaved surfaces. UDC will prove the feasibility and potential advantages of the new environmentally safe marking paint during this Phase I program. The developed materials will be tested in accordance with industry standards and ASTM methods.The tests will include elongation, tensile strength, residual cure stress, adhesion to asphaltic concrete, and abrasion resistance. At the end of Phase I, we will provide a report with results and conclusions, and a Phase II plan, schedule and costestimate.This program will provide a flexible, abrasion resistant, environmentally compliant, marking paint for use on asphaltic airfield pavements. These marking paints will be directly transferable to all airfields with asphaltic pavements. This paint willalso be used to mark municipal roads and parking structures.
