The abrasion resistance of the traffic marking paints was assessed following ASTM D2486-96.
In addition to color and color change, the two-component system will provide better abrasion resistance, hardness, and stain resistance versus a conventional OMU system.
The benefits of these coatings typically fall within one or more of five categories: heat management, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, friction reduction, and improved appearance.
Low-cost, medium-to-large particle-size surface-modified silicas improve stain and abrasion resistance and weatherability.
It improves the abrasion resistance of floor coatings and eliminates the need for frequent recoating.
It offers the abrasion resistance needed to produce as many as 300,000 sand molds before surfaces require repair or replacement.
The materials also deliver excellent performance properties such as excellent temperature and flammability, better abrasion resistance than cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), excellent chemical resistance, and lower specific gravity (1.
The extruded products are said to withstand extreme temperatures of -40[degrees]F to +400[degrees]F, resist attack by over 750 corrosive chemicals and liquids (including oil, gasoline, hydraulic fluids, hydrocarbon solvents and sulfuric acid), resist the effects of thermal cycling and exhibit excellent abrasion resistance, according to the company.
Those improvements include at least 40[degrees]C higher heat resistance, faster processing, much better abrasion resistance (a weakness of POEs), and improved compression set at high and low temperatures.

Company engineers are said to have focused on upgrading the abrasion resistance capabilities of all components, not just the belt.
