Road marking paint

  • 1-component
  • Solvent-borne

TEKNOROAD 280 Road Marking Paint is a fast-drying, matt acrylic paint that is resistant to weather and light.

Used on asphalt, oil gravel and concrete for marking of roads and related carriageways, parking places, air fields and other areas with traffic. TEKNOROAD 280 dries extremely fast. When the temperature is above +20°C, traffic can be allowed on the painted surfaces after 5 minutes without causing damage to the paint. The drying is slower at lower temperatures but even then it is fast enough for the paint to be used when the temperature is e.g. +5 - +10°C. Tinting the product with large amounts of tinting paste may affect on the drying time. TEKNOROAD 280 meets the quality requirements for road marking paints prescribed by the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency.

Surface preparation

The surface to be treated must be dry and clean. Loose matter that may weaken adhesion, such as sand, gravel, moss and other kind of growth, poorly adherent previous markings, oil and grease must always be carefully removed before applying the marking material. If the markings are applied on concrete surface, the casting must be at least 4 weeks old and well-hardened so that all moisture from casting is bound and the surface dry. The moisture of the concrete must not exceed 5% by weight. Dense laitance must be thoroughly removed before painting by scarifying, shot-blasting, surface grinding, etching or by some other appropriate method. The etching is done with RENSA ETCHING etching liquid or by diluted hydrochloric acid (1 part of concentrated acid to 4 parts of water). Rinse the concrete surface with water after etching and allow to dry. If the concrete surface has previously been treated with a water and dirt repellent coating, dust binder etc., it is particularly important to use a sufficiently effective surface preparation method such as scarifying, which is sufficient to break the adhesion-resistant coating and thus to ensure the best possible adhesion to the substrate. Marking on coated concrete without adequate surface preparation may cause markings to detach from the substrate. We recommend that the top layer of the concrete surfaces is always removed in order to ensure good adhesion.


Stir thoroughly before use. The paints are suitable for application by either low-pressure spray or airless spray. To achieve retro-reflectance, it is recommended that glass beads are strewn on the fresh paint coat.
