STORAGE AND HANDLING
These materials should be stored in a dry environment within a
temperature range of 16° C to 27° C (60° F to 80° F). Extremes of
temperature beyond this range may result in crystallization or
polymerization of the materials. Introduction of a nitrogen blanket
into the containers before closing will improve the storage life of
the products. A wide variety of cleaning solutions are available for
cured and uncured epoxies and polyurethanes. For more
information on proper recommendations and procedures, contact
the Technical Department.
These materials are intended for industrial use only, and the
practices of good housekeeping, safety and cleanliness should be
followed before, during and after use.
Although the system contains low volatility materials, care should
be taken in handling. Use adequate ventilation in the work area.
These materials may cause dermatitis in susceptible individuals.
Keep off skin and out of eyes. In case of accidental skin contact,
wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush
eyes thoroughly with water and consult a physician immediately.
A preformed thermoplastic epoxy gun is a tool used in the application of preformed thermoplastic epoxy markings on roads and pavements. The gun is typically made of durable materials such as metal or plastic and features a handle, trigger, and nozzle.
Preformed thermoplastic epoxy markings are a popular choice for road and pavement markings because they are highly visible, durable, and long-lasting. The epoxy gun is used to apply the preformed markings, which come in the form of sheets or rolls.
To use the epoxy gun, the preformed thermoplastic epoxy sheet or roll is first heated to the appropriate temperature using a specialized heating machine. The heated material is then placed onto the surface to be marked, and the epoxy gun is used to apply pressure to the material, causing it to adhere to the surface.
The gun's handle and trigger allow for precise control of the pressure applied, ensuring an even and consistent application of the preformed thermoplastic epoxy markings. The nozzle of the gun can also be adjusted to control the width of the markings applied.
Overall, a preformed thermoplastic epoxy gun is a specialized tool used in the application of preformed thermoplastic epoxy markings on roads and pavements. It allows for precise control over the application of the markings and is an essential tool for professionals in the road marking industry.
