Traffic Supply, Inc. stocks the adhesives necessary to install surface mounted delineators and markers, raised pavement markers and car stops.

Proper surface preparation is essential:

  • Surface should be dry and swept or blown free of debris.
  • New asphalt and concrete surfaces must have had sufficient time to set. 
  • Alternate products should be used if the surface has frequent standing water, is frequently irrigated or has an abnormally high moisture content.

 

8" x 8" x 1/8" uncured butyl pads are primarily used for the installation of temporary surface mounted delineators.  Simply remove one of the paper sheets;set the adhesive pad in place; remove the second paper sheet; place the assembled delineator on the pad; settle the delineator into the adhesive by standing on the base.  If properly installed, the device will withstand multiple impacts before failing.  Upon completion of the project, the device can easily be removed without damaging the pavement.  Uncured butyl rubber pads are not recommended for the installation of pavement markers as they will "walk" in the direction of travel, as they are repeatedly hit.

Two part epoxy or hot melt adhesive is recommended for the installation of permanent delineators and raised pavement markers.

A couple of notes regarding the use of our epoxy:

  • This is a rapid set product which should set in a short period of time.  Have the layout work done prior to mixing the epoxy.
  • Uncured epoxy will generate heat and become uncomfortably warm as it sets.
  • Keep traffic off of the device until the epoxy has had time to set.
  • Follow the PPE, storage and clean up recommendations on  the MSDS.

Epoxy pouches are the answer for small projects.  Each kit contains enough adhesive to set 1 surface mounted delineator, or 1-2 raised pavement markers.  The resin and hardener is packaged in a single pouch, separated by a plastic sleeve.  To use this product, simply remove the sleeve and kneed the product in the pouch until it is a uniform gray color.  Cut open a corner of the pouch to dispense the product. 

 

600ml twin tube epoxy cartridges contain enough adhesive to place about 3 surface mount delineators or 7-10 pavement markers.  A disposable mixing tube is attached to the end of the cartridge.  This eliminates hand mixing of the product and allows the product to be mixed and dispensed only as necessary.  A standard twin barrel caulk gun is necessary to use this product.

Two gallon epoxy kits contain one gallon of resin and one gallon of hardener, enough material to set approximately 40 surface mounted delineators or 80-120 pavement markers.  Although it's messy and has to be hand mixed, ounce for ounce, this is a less expensive way to purchase epoxy.  Equal portions of parts A & B are placed on a clean flat mixing surface (heavy cardboard, plywood or an old sign will work) and mixed until it's a uniform gray color.  Epoxy placed in a pile will generate more heat and set up quicker than if it was spread out over the mixing board.

 

Ten gallon epoxy sets are stocked for high volume uses, such as the placement of concrete car stops to surfaces that cannot be cored and pinned. 

 

 

 

 

5" x 5" Black hot melt Bundy pads are available for the installation of raised pavement markers.  Installation is similar to using butyl rubber pads, except that the pad is heated until fully melted before applying the marker.  There's no epoxy mess and no time lost waiting for epoxy to cure when using Bundy pads.

 

 

Bituminous Rubber Adhesive requires a kettle to uniformly heat the bricks back to a liquid state.  The hot bituminous liquid is applied to the pavement surface, a marker or delineator is set into the hot puddle, which subsequently cools and anchors the object to the paved surface.  Traffic Supply, Inc stocks bituminous adhesive in 55lb boxes.
