Cold paint material is a cost-effective solution for executing flat markings over all types of pavements for use in repairments. Flat lines are mainly used in well-illuminated areas as urban roads for e.g. where the lines do not need high retroreflectivity levels.

Using the  Borum cold paint equipment you can obtain a high-quality line up to 20 or 25 cm in width depending on the equipment type, work conditions, application speed, layer thickness, wind, etc. You can increase up to 3 guns if choosing the standard Borum retainer or up to 5 guns if you opt for the wide Borum retainer. Furthermore, depending on the choice of material tanks, it is possible to apply lines in different colours at the same time.

Pressurized cold paint spray 
Atomizing air

Line types: Flat lines (continuous and interrupted lines)

Equipment: BM C 6 gun with 6 mm nozzle as standard or you can optionally choose a Kamber gun that comes with a variety of nozzle sizes 

Air spray with atomizing air is a method of marking that uses compressed air to spray the paint onto the road surface. The finely atomized paint produces a thin and smooth layer, but the rebounding air flow causes paint scattering, which can be noticeable around the edges of the line. The paint can be mixed with glass beads.

The pressure is established by using a pressure tank for the material. The thickness of the line is controlled by the nozzle size and material pressure in the gun, and regulated relative to the speed (i.e. if you drive faster the thickness of the line will decrease unless you put more pressure on the material tank).

The width of the line is controlled by the height of the spray-gun above the ground, and the spray angle of the nozzle. For wide lines usually two or more guns are used.

  • The BM C 6 gun can work with a paint marking pressure up to approx. 8 bar
  • An air capacity of 300-700 L/min. is needed per gun
  • You can have up to 3 guns if choosing the standard Borum retainer or up to 5 guns if you opt for the wide Borum retainer.
  • With the Borum BM C6  paint gun that has a nozzle of 6 mm you can apply line widths ranging from 8 to 20 cm depending on work conditions, application speed, and layer thickness.
  • Line thickness is typically between 0.25 mm to 0.80 mm
  • Working speed can be up to 15 km/h depending on the conditions, e.g. material, line type and operator experience
  • For all Borum spray machines, the equipment is mounted on a sliding retainer frame as standard that allows you to quickly slide the equipment from one side to another
  • Can be equipped with multiple material tanks so that multi-colour marking can be carried out simultaneously (rule of thumb: one compressor can handle up to 2 guns; 2 compressors 3 guns and upwards). 

 

 

Cold paint airless spray

Line types: Flat lines (continuous and interrupted lines)

Equipment: Wagner GA400-A guns, large selection of nozzles 

High-pressure airless spraying uses a high-pressure airless piston pump to spray the paint. The airless spray paint is sharper and smoother than atomized spray as there is no high-speed airflow to scatter any rebounding paint. 

The marked lines are neat and more clear-cut compared to atomizing spray paint. This method can apply paints of high viscosity, and apply relatively thick layers in a single pass. However, the paint cannot be mixed in with glass beads as in the case of atomizing spray equipment due to the pump.

  • Can be equipped with multiple material tanks with separate airless pumps, so that multi-color marking can be carried out simultaneously.
  • High-pressure airless pump with a volume of 23 L/min.
  • Maximum paint pressure is 270 bar
  • We offer a large selection of nozzle sizes for this type of application. The choice of nozzles is made based on the capacity of the pump, number of guns, application speed, material type, layer thickness and line type
  • Possibility to apply line widths up to 25 cm with standard nozzles depending on line thickness, work conditions, and application speed. You can also choose from a wide range of nozzle sizes depending on your requirements. 
  • You can have up to 3 guns if choosing the standard Borum retainer or up to 5 guns if you opt for the wide Borum retainer.
  • Working speed can be up to 15 km/h depending on the conditions, e.g. material, line type and operator experience.
  • For all Borum spray machines, the equipment is mounted on a sliding retainer frame as standard that allows you to quickly slide the equipment from one side to another.
