On the road:

TO ECO-FRIENDLINESS

We tend to take those things for granted that cross our path every day. Take road markings, for example. We’ve become so accustomed to having them point us in the right direction—and keep us safe—that we only miss them when they are not there. To prevent millions of tons of paints and pigments from being needed to demarcate lanes, how can we produce paints sustainably when the demand is so high?

Portland

Portland
AMERICA's cycling Capital

»The goal of the $600 million 2030 Portland Bicycle Plan is for 25 percent of trips in the city to be by bike in 20 years.«

The Oregonian, Online Edition

Portland

If you want to find the heart of cycling in America, you have to go west to Portland, Oregon. This rainy metropolis boasts more cyclists per capita than any other city stateside. It’s home to the first bike-sharing program in the US and was the first American city to implement green bike boxes at intersections. And Portlanders are a dedicated bunch as well, braving the notoriously rainy weather for any type of trip on two wheels without blinking an eye.

Melbourne

Melbourne
Building a Cycling City

In March 2014, bicycles represented 15 percent of all vehicle movements in the city in the morning rush hour. On key routes this proportion was even higher.

Melbourne

The city of Melbourne is committed to becoming a cycling city, with a safe and easy-to-use bicycle network. They are investing in new and upgraded bicycle routes, complementing the 84 miles of on and off-road routes in the municipality.

Total: 81 miles (2012/13)
Off-road cycling lanes: 43 miles
On-road cycling lanes: 37 miles
Physically separated lanes: 3 miles
On-street bicycle hoops: 3175

Copenhagen

Copenhagen
Ride the snake

Copenhagen Graph

36% of all Copenhageners commute by bike.

Portland

You might think that the cold would be a deterrent from outdoor activity—especially cycling. In Copenhagen, you would be wrong. Despite the frigid temps, Copenhagen is a hotbed of cycling with nearly 50% of workers commuting by bike on a plethora of bright blue lanes. The number of bikers heading to work on two wheels is so great that one of the city’s greatest treasures is the Cykelslangen (Cycle Snake). The 13-foot wide, 721-foot long orange bike path slithers above Copenhagen’s waterfront shopping district to alleviate the congestion caused by bikers riding to work.

Chicago

Chicago
Traffic in the future

Chicago Graph

Chicago has 645 total miles of bike lanes and 100 miles of protected lanes.

Portland

While oftentimes referred to as the Second City, there is nothing second-class about Chicago’s commitment to cycling. In the past half of a century, urban cycling in the Windy City has really picked up steam. Dedicated rush hour lanes for cyclists have increased visibility on heavy-traffic roadways throughout the city, and Chicago has built over 170 miles of new purposed bike lanes in the last two decades alone. And Chi-town is nowhere near finished either with plans calling for nearly 650 miles of additional lanes by 2020. Not bad for America’s number two.

San Francisco

San Francisco
Strength in numbers

San Francisco Graph

When bike lanes are colored, the number of cars dangerously blocking bike lanes falls by 40%.

San Francisco

Some places have a knack for being one step ahead of the rest of us and San Francisco is a perennial leader among trendsetters. As the birthplace of music, social and environmentally conscious revolutions in the 60s, 80s and 90s, it's small wonder that the very first Critical Mass took place on San Francisco’s steep streets. The first trek through the town only consisted of 20 some riders and had a different name—a far cry from the tens of thousands that frequent today’s monthly jaunts around the world raising awareness for the rights of cyclists.

Singapore

Singapore
Singapore’s hidden secret

By 2030, the National Cycling Plan of Singapore targets over 435 miles of bike lanes—an increase of over 200%.

Singapore

The five million-plus residents of Singapore are constantly in motion. In cars, busses and trains. The number of automobiles is increasing drastically and traffic is as well. And yet Singapore has avoided what plagues so many major cities around the world, traffic jams. Their secret is quite simple really: early planning, timely implementation and heavy investment in all modes of transportation. Singapore has a huge, extensively developed public transport system—with bright yellow bus and bike lanes for example.

Sao Paulo

São Paulo
Special cycle path

Sao Paulo Graph

Of 201 miles of bike lanes in São Paulo 80% are painted—totaling 161 miles.

Sao Paulo

São Paulo is the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere and is responsible for a quarter of the entire automotive traffic in Brazil. Traffic jams and delays are a part of everyday life for Paulistas. But São Paulo is home to an exciting new project: bike paths for Sundays and holidays. The project began in 2009 on a few closed streets. Now these paths are all over the city and enjoy a high degree of visibility. Furthermore, there are now lanes expressly built for bike riders, e.g. the 30-mile long path along the Rio Pinheiros.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong
Surprise, surprise

Hong Kong Graph

51% of Hongkongers cited environmental awareness as the reason for riding a bike.

Hong Kong

When you think about Hong Kong’s jam packed downtown, it’s incredibly difficult to imagine bike riding of any kind taking place. But just a single trip on one of the spacious bike lanes and you’d know better. Thanks to these red and green bike paths, cyclists and bike riders in the mega city can experience kilometers of unlimited freedom.

Cape Town

Cape Town
From the table to the sea

In Cape Town, cycling is gaining speed. There are 249 miles of bike lanes at present and a target of 1243 miles planned.

Manila

There are few places on Earth more breathtaking and stunning than Cape Town, South Africa. The experience has gotten even better as painted bike lanes are guiding locals and visiting biking enthusiasts from the marvelous sights overlooking the Indian and Atlantic Oceans at Cape Point, to the never-ending view from Table Mountain.

Mexico City

Mexico City
SELF-MADE road marking

»We worked for 8 hours. We painted 3 miles. We spent less than 1000 dollars. How much would it cost to actually build the bicycle infrastructure the city needs?«

Jimena Veloz, one of the activists engaged in the project.

Mexiko City

For years now, the residents of Mexico City have fought for well-marked bike paths, but the government has taken the air out of every attempt. Therefore, peaceful bike activists decided to take matters into their own hands in 2011 and paint the bike paths themselves—beginning right in front of the parliament buildings.

Who painted the streets?

The evolution of road markings

Our streets are getting more and more colorful. A large variety of markings has been invented over the years in order to make roads safer and protect different road users from each other. Here’s a brief look at the history of road markings.

Cars and Chaos

The demand for cars has been going full throttle around the world since the beginning of the 20th century, placing ever-greater demands on our road networks. It was every driver for themselves and the situation was becoming increasingly chaotic.

Spilt Milk

Wayne County, Michigan. After seeing a milk truck leak a trail of milk onto the road, Edward N. Hines has the idea of using painted lines to separate traffic. In 2011, Hines is posthumously recognized for his contribution in Amsterdam.

Mind the Bike

The first dedicated roadside cycle track is built as an experiment by the Ministry of Transport in the UK.

Swiss Street Machines

Swiss Robert Ehrismann, and his eponymous company, becomes the very first to employ machines to mark roads. The first road the company marked was a »little« stretch of road from Basel to Chiasso—over 30 km with a single line!

Europe Gets a Bus Lane

In 1963, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg becomes the first European city to adopt dedicated bus lanes to alleviate traffic congestion. Other German cities get on board soon after.

Copenhagen Gets the Blues

In an effort to increase safety and heighten motorists' awareness of cyclists, the City of Copenhagen introduces blue cycle lanes for intersection crossings.

The Big (Red) Apple

New York City becomes the first municipality in the United States to paint bus lanes red.

A Work of Art

Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands pays tribute to its most famous son and constructs the Van-Gogh-Route bike path using glow-in-the-dark markings reminiscent of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

Challenges for modern road markings

THE BENEFITS OF USING ED PIGMENTS

Dr. Alexander Klein, Director of Technical Marketing for DEGAROUTE® at Evonik, explains the significance of road markings and describes the challenges of marking roads.
Which requirements must road markings fulfill?
The main functions of road markings are to inform, guide and protect, and thus facilitate our safe navigation when in traffic. They should provide supportive traffic information and must not distract. Crosswalks, stop lines and other long white lines are designed to provide us with orientation. To guide us safely and effectively, they have to be clearly visible at night and when visibility is impaired, for instance, by rain. Furthermore, they must adhere to a readily understood color code, and provide sufficient skid resistance. And not only that, they also have to be able to adjust to a myriad of challenges: Heavy traffic streets and highways require more durable road markings than, for instance, rural roads with light traffic.

What different types of markings are there?
The simplest kinds of markings are spray applied 1K paints. Population growth and highly urbanized areas, however, demand new solutions. Therefore, there are more durable materials for thin layer applications, as well as for thicker layer applications that last much longer and can withstand more. For more sustainable solutions, normally cold plastic road marking is recommended, which is applied at room temperature, and which is optimally equipped to handle the demanding conditions caused by heavy traffic. In addition, cold plastic is a duroplastic material with an inherently high softening point, and therefore the most suitable marking for hot and cold climate conditions. Not to mention the superior UV-stability.

What area of road markings are you active in?
We manufacture binders. Simply put, we sell the anchor that keeps the pigments on the streets. Although we are positioned at the beginning of the value chain, we continually develop collaborations throughout the value chain. We provide consultation and assist in creating demonstration projects, which are designed to help clients obtain the required approvals, and most importantly, to foster exchange. This includes experiences, information and best cases among countries aiming at reducing approval times and making innovative solutions widely available. We have over 50 years of experience in all areas of road markings, which positions us perfectly to develop new sustainable solutions, penetrate new markets, and contribute to improved road safety.

What are some of the challenges you have to overcome?
The trick is to create a marking system that is reliable, even at night and particularly when visibility is impaired by rain. Road markings are typically given a coat of glass beads. When headlights hit the beads, they are reflected back towards the source of the light and thus ensure visibility. When it’s raining, however, a thin film of water forms on the beads and prevents the light from reflecting. In such cases, it’s imperative that we implement a draining mechanism to remove the water and thus ensure the markings’ effectiveness. Therefore, we have developed cold plastic technologies that provide a highly wear-resistant 3D surface structure of the road markings that drain-off water and provide wet night visibility. In addition, beads at some point are eroded away or damaged and must be replaced. This is feasible in a particularly resource-efficient and environment-friendly manner by recoating the still available 3D structure with a thin layer of cold spray plastic and new glass beads. Optimizing this efficient technology even further is a major challenge for the future.

»Population growth and highly urbanized areas demand new solutions.«

What role does color play in road markings?
Until recently, white and yellow were the dominant colors in road markings. However, they were used in a wide range of applications and in a broad spectrum of hues. White, for example, included everything from snow white to light yellow. This is changing, though, as individual, specialized colors are gaining in importance. Markings are designed to influence the behavior of road users—something at which colors are very effective. Dedicated colored lanes efficiently separate fast from slow-moving traffic. Colors can make accident-prone areas safer and also carry with them an aesthetic function that makes cities more appealing. Furthermore, surface markings are also increasing in popularity as traffic demographics are changing, which in turn demand new marking applications. Our challenge lies in durability: our cold plastic is extremely durable—and our pigments must be just as stable. For example, bike or bus path markings are expected to last for at least a decade, and only high-quality pigments can be expected to meet the demands over such a long period of time.

»Markings are designed to influence the behavior of road users—something at which colors are very effective.«

What are the biggest benefits of using ED pigments?
Even if we are responsible for producing binders, we recommend pigments that we believe in. They have to be able to handle the toughest demands, extreme storms or heavy UV exposure. In addition to the functional requirements, requiring fewer materials to produce is a major plus. ED pigments are not only easily dispersible, they need fewer raw materials and bring more flexibility in production than standard pigments. Furthermore, ED pigments are bright and readily visible, meaning increased visibility and safety.

What does the future of road marking hold?
Ensuring safety at night is a major topic—especially given the fact that the population is aging. Ideally, it would be great if self-luminous markings that are commonly used for emergency escape routes, could also be applied on roads. With the current state of technology, the self-luminous markings can provide light on roads for only one or two hours. At present, there are no cost-effective and sustainable manufacturing possibilities for self-luminous markings on roads. But we are working towards it. This is just one of many exciting ideas we are working on at the moment.

Enduring the weather

surviving the elements

Colors fade, especially when exposed to the elements and millions of wheels roll over them. Such conditions are simulated on test routes in laboratories. What does road marking have to endure when it’s on the job?

Rain

Rain can be a problem for road marking in three ways: not only regarding liability and visibility but also durability. Rain intensifies the destructive force of UV radiation by the sun.

Mechanic Stress

If you want to simulate eight years of mechanical stress for road markings on busy roads bearing an average traffic of 40000 cars per day, you have to simulate being ran over 8,000,000 times. After such a test with a Turntable Test System conventional road markings become flat.

Ultraviolet

A weather-Ometer can simulate UV radiation, much faster than outdoor test fields, that expose colors at an angle of 45°C to the sun. 2000 hours in the weather-Ometer corresponds approximately to one year outdoor.

Snow/ Winter Service

During the winter some road markings are exposed to extreme cold with temperatures dropping down to –30°C. Furthermore, they have to withstand the added mechanical stress of the massive winter service machines.

Ice

Road marking is applied on asphalt. If this basic ground blasts because of frozen water in street cracks, road marking is also affected. Inferior road marking materials with poor asphalt adhesion or insufficient flexibility may crack and peal off.

Heat

Heat conditions are simulated on test routes in hot areas like Australia or the Middle East with an outdoor temperature of more than 40 °C. Road markings must withstand these extreme conditions.

Always one step ahead

THE BRILLIANCE OF INNOVATION

The machines are up and running 365 days a year, exposing hundreds of tiny, brightly colored specimens to ultraviolet rays and rain around the clock to simulate that most variable of variables: the weather. A pigment’s quality rises and falls with its ability to handle various weather conditions. If a pigment, for example, fades too quickly, it fails the test and will never make it to the market.

These weather-Ometers are located at Clariant’s Innovation Center in Frankfurt, Germany. There is more going on here than testing a pigment’s ability to withstand the weather. For 15 years, Clariant scientists have been conducting research on a method of simplifying the pigment dispersion process. This is essential to sustainable paint production as nothing guzzles more time, energy and water than the process of dispersing pigments in a bead mill.

A new range of organic pigments, the easily dispersible (ED) pigments, has been developed by Clariant to simplify this process.

»Clariant is the very first to succeed in manufacturing an easily dispersible organic pigment.«


ED pigments are surface modified organic pigments. The additives on the pigment surface are incorporated in the standard production process during the pigment finish. Therefore, no additional step is added to this process. These additives, highly efficient and widely compatible, facilitate wetting and separation of pigment particles during the dispersion process. Furthermore, the optimum amount of additive is present on each ED pigment surface. As a result, ED pigments can be dispersed with a high-speed dissolver, eliminating the need for the traditional bead-milling step. 

By simplifying the dispersion step, ED pigments can significantly improve the eco-footprint in paint manufacture. The processing time is shortened leading to increased production capacity, while simultaneously realizing savings in electricity consumption and generation of waste water.

    CONVENTIONAL PIGMENT

    WITH ED-ADDITIVE

    Pigments are synthesized in a stirred reactor.

    Typically, conventional pigments form agglomerates. To achieve optimal color strength, mechanical forces have to be applied to reduce the size of the agglomerates.

    To make a pigment concentrate, conventional pigments have to be pre-dispersed in a dissolver and then grinded in a bead mill.

    This cost-intensive process using the bead mill requires a significant amount of time and energy.

    During the pigment manufacturing process an optimal amount of additive is used to modify the pigment.

    Since the ED pigment additive functions like a spacer, the pigment aggregates separate easily from each other and do not form agglomerates.

    This process is much simpler with ED pigments: Optimal dispersion is achieved by only using a dissolver.

    By using ED pigments, the bead mill process is eliminated. The ED concentrate can be completed with additional binder-»let down« to get the finished paint.

    • Easily dispersible pigments for

      SOLVENT-BASED INDUSTRIAL COATING SYSTEMS

      • What exactly is EDS?
        EDS pigments are surface modified organic pigments specifically designed for solvent-based industrial coatings. The ED effect is achieved with a combination of a tailor-made additive and considerable technical know-how in the pigment manufacture process.
      • Dispersibility
        EDS pigments is easily incorporated into paint systems that use dissolvers and eliminates an additional production step. EDS pigments require significantly less milling time compared to the conventional pigments that rely on bead mills.
      • Compatibility
        The pigments have been successfully tested against similar pigments in various coating systems including alkyd (air drying and baking enamels), polyurethane, polyester (saturated and unsaturated polyester), acrylic (UV curing, e.g. epoxy acrylate resins) and epoxy systems.
      • Co-Dispersion
        Several EDS pigments can be added to a mill base formulation or co-dispersed with inorganic pigments for specific shades. The simplified process lowers manufacturing costs, improves productivity, and offer lower cost options for high performance coatings.
      • Tailor-made additive
        EDS additives are widely compatible and do not show adverse effects on paint properties, such as pot life and film hardness in 2-component PU systems, drying time of air drying systems and overall weather fastness.
      • Sustainability
        By simplifying the dispersing step, EDS pigments improve the eco footprint of paint manufacture. Processing is shorter, leading to increased production capacity, while also reducing electrical energy and generating less waste water.
    • Easily dispersible pigments for water-based

      PIGMENT DISPERSIONS IN DECORATIVE PAINTS

      • Dispersability
        EDW pigments are dispersed with a dissolver using a reduced amount of additives, as well as through a shorter bead mill process. In both cases, EDW pigments offer cost savings thanks to simplified processes.
      • Applications
        Recommended fields of application of the EDW range are water-based pigment dispersions for in-paint / point-of-sale tinting of decorative paints like aqueous emulsion paints. EDW pigment dispersions can also be used for tinting most solvent-based alkyd paints.
      • Excellent compatibility
        The additives used to modify the surface of EDW pigments are widely compatible with most decorative paints.
      • Sustainability
        EDW pigments can be used, for example, to produce tinters like Colanyl 500. They are highly suitable for manufacturing eco-labeled low VOC paints according to EU Directive 2004/42/EC (20129) as well as emulsion paints labeled with the German »Blue Angel« (Guideline RAL ZU 102).
        Furthermore, by simplifying the dispersing step, EDW pigments improve the eco footprint of paint manufacture. Processing is shorter, leading to increased production capacity while simultaneously saving on electrical energy and generating less waste water.
