Preparation

Eurolines are easy to apply to bituminous and concrete surfaces. Before application always ensure the area is clean, dry and free from dust, oil and fuel residues. Premark Primer should be used when applying Eurolines to concrete, stone and worn macadam surfaces. Ensure that the primer is completely dry before the material is applied. In cold conditions warming of the surface prior to application is required to enhance adhesion.

Clean area where Eurolines are to be applied thoroughly by removing all sand, dirt, chemicals and oily substances. If there is any moisture present in the surface this must be removed with the gas burner.

Application

Eurolines should be placed on the surface with the beaded top coat facing up making sure the individual pieces are positioned correctly and with no gaps in-between.

The material should be heated using a powerful gas burner (pressure min. 3 bar). Move the flame slowly but steadily 10 to 30cm over the material in a sweeping motion so that heat is evenly applied. The material must be heated until all the material is liquid (approx. 200°C).

Applying insufficient heat will result in inadequate bonding and subsequent failure of the material.

If overheated, superficial scorching of the material can occur resulting in brown blotching, but this discolouring will soon disappear once the Eurolines are exposed to traffic and weather.
