Traffic Sign NTS 4400

Glossy, two-component ink with high resistance to petroleum products, which dries on chemical reaction

Application Area

It is applied on retro reflective folio used on Traffic and Road Signs.The service life on high performance foil is 7 years. The use of topcoat varnish increases the resistance to mechanical effects.

All colors are suited to the color standards set by the General Directorate of Highways.,

Technical Specifications

General

High print quality

Optimum light transmittance

Perfect flexibility

High mechanical and chemical resistance

Drying

After 6-8 hours at 20°C room temperature, you can touch the paint. In order to shorten this period, it must be kept in an air circulating tunnel furnace at 40-60 °C for 4-6 hours.
The most common application is drying in a room with air circulation for 4-6 hours after drying at 60 °C for 1-2 minutes in an oven. Full drying occurs within 3-4 days.

Brightness

The ink is too bright. The brightness of the applied foil affects the total brightness.

Silk Feature

The standard transparency of applied colors is achieved by using 100-40 (T) silk.

Amount of Coating

When using 100-40 (T) silk, approximately 45 m²/l.

Usage

Hardener (Catalyst)

Hardener no.3 (Catalyst) is added in an amount of 25% by weight to the ink or varnish. Mixing of the catalyst at different ratios especially more than the specified range will adversely affect the drying properties and the external strength. The lifetime of the catalyst and ink mixture is about 8-12 hours at 20 ° C.

Thinning

%10 Thinner 61 is added to the ink and catalyst mixture. In very hot ambient conditions, thinner 61 can be replaced by retarder 4 partly or wholly.

Protective Varnish

Application of the topcoat varnish on printing does not affect light transmittance but increases mechanical strength. 100T silk must be used during application. The topcoat of protective varnish should be applied within 3 days of the first printing.
