Hitex Extends Puma Range Of Road Marking Products

Hitex International, a leading global provider of road safety and surface treatment solutions, has extended its Puma range of MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) road safety marking and coloured textured surfacing materials with the introduction of PumaBrite and PumaSpray. These innovative products are engineered to achieve the highest levels of retroreflectivity, durability, adhesion and colour stability in a wide range of road marking applications around the world.

According to Hitex Traffic Safety: “We designed these new products to meet the specific needs of road maintenance crews in a wide range of environments. These new road marking products are quick to install and will enable significant productivity improvements to be achieved whilst minimising delays to traffic whilst works are completed.”

PumaBrite is available in a range of performance levels for type 1 flat line standard markings or type 2 profiled, structured wet night markings. It is quick and easy to apply either by machine extrusion or hand screed and offers catalyst-controlled curing in around 10-30 minutes depending on ambient temperatures. Highly resistant to discolouration, PumaBrite is tough and durable with a long service life in a wide range of applications including centre, edge line and junctions along with letters, arrows and other road marking symbols. It is also ideal for smaller scale works such as car parks, factory and safety markings.

“The speed with which PumaBrite and PumaSpray can be installed enables our road crews to achieve even higher levels of productivity and complete works faster,” added Dave Oswald, MD of Central Traffic Management Limited (CTM), a leading UK-based provider of road management solutions. “These new products also provide a cost effective solution for works of any size and complexity.”

PumaSpray is applied by machine spray and is designed to rapidly recover the performance levels of existing profiled markings or as an economical thin layer marking.

The Hitex Puma range can be modified for use in any climate and is available in white or yellow as standard. Other colours are available on request.
