ViaTherm® Viking - Extend your marking season
We all know the situation, where the road authorities or other road marking clients are asking for the roads to be marked, but the roads are to moist or wet. With ViaTherm® Viking, the application window for bulk thermoplastic is increased and the application season is prolonged.
Conquer the weather
ViaTherm® Viking is a thermoplastic road marking material specially developed for application during early spring and late fall, where there tend to be moist on the roads.
ViaTherm® Viking has special adhesion properties, high functional performance and long durability.
ViaTherm® Viking is applied like other bulk thermoplastic road marking materials from Geveko Markings, but the special formulation of ViaTherm® Viking makes the adhesion to the road stronger over time even though the initial adhesion is affected by for instance moisture. Hence, ViaTherm® Viking can be applied even, when there is light moist on the asphalt. By combining with turbine dryers or gas burners enough water can be removed from wet surfaces, so they can be classified as surfaces with light moist and prepared for ViaTherm® Viking. Moist is when there is no free flowing water on top of the surface or in the surface pores.
The results are in!
ViaTherm® Viking has been tested on Nordic road trials in Sweden and Denmark with good results for adhesion and functional performance. In real life, ViaTherm® Viking has been successfully applied for more than 4 years in the Nordic region.
