The land traffic infrustructure in the developed and developing countries is
on the increase every year. To cope with the increasing traffic
condition, better roads and cross-country highways are being constructed
with the help of new technology.
Improved safety measures are being incorporated into the modern
road systems to enhance the safety of road users. Such safety
measures include more visible road signs, light reflectors, road
studs, road dividers, guard rails, traffic control systems and
Road markings have hitherto played an important role in guiding
traffic directions. In the early forties, a single dividing line
was drawn in the middle of the road to keep the traffic on the
correct side of the road to prevent a head on collision. As the
roads became wider, lane lines were introduced to make driving
more orderly. Consequently, more marking features were introduced
which include edge lines, chevron lines, zebra crossings, directional
arrow, letterings and numerals to guide drivers to their destinations
Hot melt thermoplastic road marking material was put to use in
the sixties and has become a major marking material since. It
gives more durable lines with all the features required.
DPI Thermoplastic was developed with the assistance of Shinto Paint,
Japan in 1985. Consistent efforts were made to improve the quality
of the product through research and development in order to obtain
improved formulations to suit varying conditions.
DPI Thermoplastic is manufactured under very stringent quality control
measures using the highest quality raw materials. The product
qualifies specifications set by Australia Standards AS 4049.2, High Performance Australia Standards AS 4049.4 and
Japan Industrial Standards JIS K5665. Furthermore, DPI Thermoplastic Roadliner
can be fine-tuned to cater for standards such as U.S., European
union, Japan, etc.
