Tecnivial promotes technical innovation in traffic signs

Tecnivial is demonstrating its lighter, safer traffic signs at Intertraffic for the first time as it seeks new business.

The Spanish company has produced its signs for its local market for three years and is keen to expand into northern Europe.

Its traffic signs are made of composite fibre/resin material, but with the important ‘extra’ of having nanoparticles of graphene embedded in them for additional strength.

The signs are one-quarter as heavy as steel and half as heavy as aluminium, impervious to corrosion and its manufacturing processes are kinder to the environment than either metal, says Tecnivial. One sign on the Tecnivial sign is twice the size of a metal one, yet weighs just 2kg, compared to 20kg in the traditional material.

The material also has a low residual value, making them less likely to be stolen for their scrap metal value. An additional benefit of Tecnivial’s traffic signs is that they are mounted on special fibre poles that disintegrate in the event of a vehicle hitting them, rather than causing more damage to the vehicle.
