SIST EN 1790:2013

EN 1790:2013 (E) 5 Introduction A particular category of road marking materials, used for horizontal signalisation, are preformed, i.e. manufactured products in sheet form, ready for use on the road. They can be applied by means of adhesives, pressure or heat, with or without the use of a primer. Preformed road marking materials can be linear, in pieces of a certain length or in rolls. They can also be cut out in the form of symbols or signs or parts of them, making it possible to assemble them on the road to achieve the desired shape. Preformed road marking materials can be designed for use as permanent or temporary road markings. In both cases, they can be applied with a view to later removal and therefore the specific property of "removability" can be required. Preformed road marking products are defined as Tape, preformed Cold Plastic road marking or preformed Thermoplastic road marking with or without drop-on materials. Except for Thermoplastic road markings with drop-on materials, all the other type of products are fully finished during manufacturing and do not change significantly their properties during application.

They are completely covered by this standard. Thermoplastic road markings with drop-on materials need the addition of drop-on materials during application on the road and therefore they are in some way similar to the thermoplastic products covered by prEN 1871:2008. This standard provides all the relevant information and cross references to prEN 1871:2008 in order to cover these kinds of products. SIST EN 1790:2013

EN 1790:2013 (E) 6 1 Scope This European Standard specifies construction products which are white and yellow, removable or non-removable, preformed road marking materials, under the form of tape, cold plastic, thermoplastics with or without drop-on materials, to be used for permanent and/or temporary road markings in circulation areas. Other products and colours intended for road markings are not covered in this European Standard. This European Standard also gives specifications for the evaluation of conformity for white and yellow, removable or non-removable, preformed road materials under the form of tape, cold plastic, thermoplastics with or without drop-on materials to be used for permanent and/or temporary road markings in circulation areas including type testing and factory production control. This European Standard includes an Annex ZA for tapes, preformed cold plastic road marking and thermoplastic road marking with and without drop-on materials with the clauses addressing the provisions of the EU Construction Product Directive for permanent road marking. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

4.1.3 Night-time visibility (retroreflection under vehicle headlamp illumination)

Night-time visibility represents the brightness of a road marking as seen by driver’s vehicles under the illumination by the driver’s own headlamp. The result is expressed by the coefficient of retroreflected luminance in mcd·m-2·lx-1. The coefficient of retroreflected luminance on dry conditions changes during wetness or during rain. Retroreflected luminance during wetness or during rain only applies for road markings type II. a) When preformed road marking material is tested on dry conditions, in accordance with 5.2.3 a), the coefficient of the retroreflected luminance RL shall comply with classes R1 to R5 of EN 1436:2007+A1:2008, Table 3 (only for retroreflective road marking products).

When a white preformed road marking is tested in accordance with 5.2.4, the x, y chromaticity co-ordinates shall lie within the region defined by the corner points given in EN 1436:2007+A1:2008, Table 6 for white road markings. When a yellow preformed road marking is tested in accordance with 5.2.4, the x, y chromaticity co-ordinates shall lie within the region Y2 defined by the corner points given in EN 1436:2007+A1:2008, Table 6 for yellow road markings. 4.1.5 Skid resistance SRT value (only for non-structured road marking products) Skid resistance represents the energy loss caused by the friction of a rubber slider over a specified length of a road marking surface in wet conditions. The result is expressed in SRT (Skid Resistance Tester) units. Measured on samples in the laboratory according to 5.2.5, the skid resistance of preformed materials shall be in accordance with classes S1 to S5 of EN 1436:2007+A1:2008, Table 7 except for structured road marking assemblies.

4.1.6 Removability

Removability, as defined in 3.2, shall be tested in order to evaluate whether the preformed road marking material is entirely removable without leaving permanent marks that could confuse the road user during the different weather conditions. The removability of preformed road markings cannot be determined in the laboratory and shall therefore be tested on the road, in accordance with 5.2.6. 4.1.7 Resistance to UV exposure

UV resistance shall be checked in accordance with 5.2.7. The chromaticity co-ordinates of preformed materials after UV exposure shall comply with the region for white road markings of Table 6 and with region Y2 for yellow road markings in EN 1436:2007+A1:2008, Table 6, respectively for white and yellow preformed road marking. The preformed materials shall be classified in accordance with Table 2, where ∆β is the difference between the luminance factor before and after UV exposure. Table 2  Classes of UV resistance
