1 Scope
This document specifies the requirements for conducting road trials for road marking materials intended for use in both permanent and temporary road marking. Details are given for test sites, for the application of road marking materials on the test sites, for the parameters to be measured and the frequency of the measurements and for the presentation of the results in the form of a test report. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 1436, Road marking materials
― Road marking performance for road users EN 13036-1, Road and airfield surface characteristics ― Test methods ― Part 1: Measurement of pavement surface macrotexture depth using a volumetric patch technique 3 Terms and definitions For the purpose of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1 roll-over number of wheels passing over a point of a road surface within a specified period of time
3.2 useful rate of application quantity, expressed in g×m -2 , of drop-on and/or non-drop materials which have adhered to the road marking substrate, when lines are done
3.3 rate of consumption during application quantity, expressed in g×m -2 , of drop-on or injection materials at the exit of the guns of the application equipment
3.4 percentage of heavy vehicles ratio between the number of heavy vehicles and the number of all vehicles circulating on the test site
4 Test sites and conditions
4.1 General Test sites shall be arranged at suitable locations in accordance with 4.2 to 4.5. The test results may depend on test field location, climate, road surface and traffic which shall be described according to 4.2 to 4.6.
4.2 Test sites characteristics and location The test site shall be located in an area which belongs to one of the climatic classes defined in 4.3. The test site shall consist of a field, where the road marking materials are to be applied, with extra space at both ends. The roads used for test sites should be straight and flat and without junctions, substantial obstacles to daylight, sources of frequent dirt (quarries, field exits, etc.) or tracked vehicles.
