Detailed Process of Hot Melt Marking Construction




1.    Road Cleaning

Before construction, the nearby area must be cleaned to ensure that there are no impurities such as oil, water, fallen leaves, weeds, etc., so as not to affect the adhesion, smoothness, and reflective effect of the markings.


2.    Full Scale Plotting

During the setting out process, calculations and measurements must be made strictly in accordance with the construction drawings. Measure the number of lanes that need to be marked on the road, fix the points, and then mark them with a slate pen. Use titanium dioxide or double flying powder to stick a hemp rope to stretch the line. After the rope is removed, make corrections and improve it to ensure that the line shape is clear and accurate.


3. Lower Coating Agent Application

The primer is a common adhesive used in hot-melt marking construction. Applying it on the highway pavement can make the hot-melt paint better adhere to the road surface.


4. Hot melt coating application construction

Before construction, first check the relevant coating equipment.

As the trolley moves forward, the paint will form a film on the road surface, and a layer of glass beads will be spread on the film during the coating process. When the trolley moves forward, use the reference waterline as the ruler to control the thickness and width of the markings to ensure the coordination, clarity, and smoothness of the markings at the connection between straight lines and curves.

Note: During the coating process, in order to avoid settling and separation of the paint, the paint needs to be stirred frequently.


5. Line modification and opening to traffic

After the paint application is completed, check and correct the marked line shape, check the spread of glass beads, etc. After confirmation, clean up the construction site.

After the markings are dry and hardened, the relevant construction equipment can be moved, safety facilities removed, and traffic opened.
