ASTM D 713-1990 Road Use Test for Liquid Road Sign Materials

Meaning and Purpose
3.1 This procedure is an accelerated evaluation of bead retention, inverse reflectance, daytime color, nighttime color and wear characteristics of fluid traffic marking materials. It is used to determine the service life of such markers in the field. The same procedure is applied to evaluate longitudinal lines to determine the service life.

Scope of
1.1 This procedure includes the use of lateral test lines to determine the relative service life of fluid traffic marking materials such as paints, thermoplastics, epoxies and polyester products under actual road conditions. The tested material is applied under the specified conditions and regularly observed using the specified performance criteria.
