MMA Coating for Bike and Bus Lanes

Methyl methacrylate is an amazing chemical substance that has many uses in many industries. A highly durable and flexible product, it is excellent wherever durability is necessary. In the road marking industry, high-traffic and low-traffic areas alike need road marking paint that can meet the toughest conditions from the weather and traffic. For heightened visibility and other benefits, Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation can apply MMA coating for bike and bus lanes and more in Maryland.

What Is MMA Coating?

MMA (methyl methacrylate) is a monomer that is foundational for many acrylic and other high-durability products. MMA coating for asphalt roads contains two parts: a pigmented base resin and a polymer curing agent. These two elements create a strong, uniform bond that enables the asphalt coating to last for up to ten years in good condition. MMA coating for asphalt colors specific lanes to highlight their purpose for buses, cyclists, etc., and can come in different bright colors such as red, blue, green, orange, and yellow.

MMA Applications

As mentioned, MMA applies to far more than just asphalt roads. MMA can combine with other chemicals to form materials for products in dentistry, nail salons, outdoor lighting, exterior paints, safety glazing, plumbing fixtures, and shatterproof replacement glass. Other products include inks, floor polishes, sealants, adhesives, textile finishes, industrial finishes, metal coatings, and packaging.

There are benefits in coloring specific lanes as well; the bright colors of MMA coating make traffic lane purposes clearer and lowers the chance of a traffic accident. Which color to paint your bus or bike lane may have to do with your local road guidelines. Typically, bus lanes are red and bike lanes are green.
