RainSafeLow Profile Thermoplastic Road Marking Material

In dark and wet conditions, road users are at their most vulnerable.  The castellated RainSafe low profile thermoplastic road marking provides improved water drainage whilst increasing visibility with the peaks of the profile visible to the driver above the level of the surface water. Light from vehicle headlights is reflected from the raised peaks, giving the driver an enhanced navigational aid.

RainSafe is a high performance low profile thermoplastic road marking containing high quality synthetic resins, plasticiser, polymers, glass beads, pigment, aggregates and fillers.  RainSafe is installed at rapid rates using specialist equipment to emboss a repeating castellated profile into a base line giving drivers a visual aid whilst still allowing maximum water drainage in wet night conditions.
