Applying Traffic Marking Coatings?

The Government of Canada is working to protect the environment and health of Canadians from the effects of air pollutants that increase the risk of respiratory and heart diseases. As part of this work, in 2009 Environment Canada adopted the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations, which include regulatory requirements affecting traffic marking (TM) coatings.

As a company, government or facility that uses traffic marking (TM) coatings as part of your operations, or specifies such activities during contractual arrangements, you need to be aware of Regulations now specifying the VOC concentration limits of TM coatings.  Starting September 10, 2012, these regulations will mandate a seasonal restriction on the use of TM coatings.
