Improved safety with Snoline’s latest reflective tapes
Alberto Pedroni of Snoline
Two new temporary road marking tapes are being offered by safety specialist Snoline. Part of Lindsay Transportation Solutions, Snoline says that its new Tempoline and Profiline products are easy to install and offer high conspicuity.
The Tempoline WR HP14 product features a flexible rubber layer that is reinforced with polyester fabric, allowing it to be removed easily. The upper surface structure and special glass beads are said to provide high visibility in all climactic conditions, particularly at night and in wet weather.
The product is said to offer high visibility for duties in traffic deviations and temporary symbols around construction zones. The product is available in various widths and contains no harmful material, allowing it to be used in environmentally sensitive areas.
The tape and primer has to be stored in a cool, dry indoor facility and has to be used within 18 months from delivery. Ease of application is claimed and roads can be opened to traffic as soon as it is installed. Meanwhile, the Profiline T 14 tape shares the same high visibility in all conditions but is designed to offer high durability due to its special polymer construction and can be used in workzones for 6-12 month periods.
High skid resistance is claimed due to the embedded particles and embossed form and it can be used in temperatures from -10°C to 35°C as well as relative humidity up to 70%. It offers retroreflectivity of R5 in wet conditions and RW6 in dry weather as well as an anti-skid rating of S3.
