Evaluation of Yellow-White Paint Mixtures

Report No: 81-R15

Published in 1980

About the report:

In view of the potential cost savings to be achieved through the use of the regular yellow traffic paint diluted with less expensive white paint, it was decided that the Department would evaluate roadway applications of the paint mixture with emphasis on the compatibility of the Department's painting equipment and procedures with the proposed paint mixture, the motorist's reactions to the diluted yellow color, and the cost savings by using the mixture. Conclusions and recommendations are presented based on the evaluation of two test sections in the Fredericksburg District.
