MMA ROAD MARKINGS
Road line marking by Silikal is done by using MMA resins. MMA, or Methyl Methacrylate, is a specialized and advanced road line marking medium. It is the best pavement marking on road surfaces to give vehicles and pedestrians clear direction, separation, and safety. MMA road markings are famous for their outstanding durability and longevity; they can be applied without heating, and it does not require primer before application. This makes MMA popular for various road, highway, airport, and traffic control applications.
Silikal MMA Road Markings Used For:
Silikal MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) road marking is a versatile, high-performance pavement marking material applied in various road and traffic management scenarios. Its exceptional properties make it suitable for a wide range of uses, including:
Highways and Roads:
Silikal MMA road markings are commonly used on highways and roads to provide clear lane delineation, edge lines, center lines, and other necessary traffic guidance markings. Their high visibility and durability ensure drivers can navigate safely, especially during adverse weather conditions.
Intersections are critical points where road users need clear guidance on lane assignments, stop lines, yield markings, and turn lanes. Silikal MMA road markings offer high visibility and resistance to wear, ensuring these markings remain intact and legible at busy intersections.
Crosswalks and Pedestrian Zones:
Silikal MMA road markings are employed in crosswalks, zebra crossings, and pedestrian-only zones for pedestrian safety. Their durability ensures continued visibility, contributing to safer interactions between pedestrians and vehicles.
Dedicated bike lanes benefit from the resilience of our MMA road markings. These markings define bike lanes, indicating safe spaces for cyclists and helping motorists be aware of shared road spaces.
MMA road markings are used in parking lots and garages to demarcate parking spaces, aisles, and directional arrows. Their durability withstands constant traffic and parking maneuvers.
Silikal MMA road markings are used on airport runways, taxiways, and aprons to guide aircraft and vehicles. Their quick curing time allows for minimal disruption to airport operations during maintenance.
Due to its rapid curing properties, MMA road marking is employed for temporary road markings during construction, detours, or special events. These markings can be removed or replaced once they’ve served their purpose.
Bus Lanes and Transit Stops:
Dedicated bus lanes and transit stops are delineated using MMA road markings. Their durability ensures these markings remain visible despite frequent bus and vehicle traffic.
Safety Zones and Hazard Markings:
MMA road markings designate safety zones, such as areas around schools, pedestrian refuges, and hazard zones. These markings help raise awareness of potential dangers and encourage cautious driving.
Custom Markings and Symbols:
MMA road markings can be customized to include symbols, letters, numbers, and other specific traffic-related information, helping to communicate regulatory messages to road users.
MMA road marking is used wherever clear, durable, and obvious road markings are required. Its versatility and exceptional performance make it essential for enhancing road safety, guiding traffic flow, and managing various roadways and transportation infrastructure.
BENEFITS OF SILIKAL MMA ROAD MARKINGS
Our MMA road markings are visible during the day and at night. Because of their high reflectivity, they stay readily visible even in low-light circumstances, leading to improved traffic safety.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
What are MMA cold plastic markings?
MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) cold plastic marking, sometimes called hard plastic road marking, makes long-lasting and obvious traffic signs and markings. In contrast to conventional thermoplastic markings, MMA cold plastic markings are applied at room temperature, making it a flexible option for diverse road marking projects.
The following are some crucial characteristics and advantages of MMA cold plastic marking:
As the name implies, MMA cold plastic marks can be applied without external heating apparatus. As a result, it can be used for a broader range of weather conditions and application energy use is decreased.MMA is highly durable.
Road markings made of MMA are incredibly long-lasting. They can tolerate large traffic volumes, severe weather, and UV exposure without fading or deteriorating.
Because MMA markings cure fast, there are fewer traffic delays. At the same time, they are being placed, and roads can reopen sooner once maintenance or new markings have been put down.
Even in bad weather like rain and fog, MMA road markings are renowned for their exceptional visibility, which increases the safety of bicycles, pedestrians, and drivers on the road.
MMA road markings can be tailored to offer high levels of skid resistance, lowering the likelihood of accidents caused by slick road conditions.
MMA road markings last longer than typical paint or thermoplastic markings, which lowers the need for maintenance and re-marking regularly.
Customization: MMA can be mixed easily with several additives to produce marks of varying colours, forms, and designs, enabling better organization of parking and traffic areas.
Low VOC Emissions
MMA road markings are air quality compliant and environmentally friendly due to their low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Many MMA road markings include reflective qualities that improve visibility and road safety at night.
Because MMA road markings cure quickly, they may be applied during off-peak traffic times, minimizing disruption to regular traffic flow.
Because MMA markers are chemically inert, they are appropriate for roadways exposed to oil, fuel, and other potentially corrosive substances. Customization: MMA can be easily mixed with various additives to create markings of different colours, shapes, and designs, allowing for better organization of traffic and parking areas.MMA cold plastic marking is frequently used to mark crosswalks, lane separators, stop lines, pedestrian crossings, and bike lanes. Many road authorities and contractors favour it because of its dependability, visibility, and simplicity of application.
Difference between MMA and thermoplastics.
MMA is a liquid monomer that polymerizes to create a solid substance. It is a particular variety of acrylic resin. On the other hand, thermoplastics are polymers that can be repeatedly melted and remoulded without significantly losing their characteristics.
Thermoplastics must be heated to a high temperature of 200 degrees Celsius before being applied, whereas heating is unnecessary for MMA.
Burns are frequently caused by this high temperature, which calls for competent labourers. Additionally, moist surfaces cannot be used to apply thermoplastics.
Before application, the surface should be dehydrated.
Typical applications for MMA in flooring systems include road line marking, the floors of commercial kitchens, food processing facilities, auto shops, and industrial settings, all of which require long-lasting, chemical-resistant materials with quick cure periods. Thermoplastics are used in various products, such as packaging, automobile parts, medical equipment, consumer items, and building materials.
The strong impact resistance, superior chemical resistance, and quick cure of MMA flooring are all advantages. Because it offers a flawless finish, it can be applied in thin layers. High strength-to-weight ratios, chemical resistance, and adaptability are all characteristics of thermoplastics. Processes, including injection moulding, extrusion, and thermoforming, can mould them into various shapes.
Because MMA flooring cures quickly, installation takes unique skills. It entails applying the liquid MMA to the substrate after mixing it with aggregates. Thermoplastics are often produced as sheets, pellets, or other shapes, and depending on the intended application, they are subsequently treated using various techniques.
MMA lasts longer than thermoplastics by 5 years. MMA has a very long lifespan of up to 10 years.
