Reduce your environmental impact with UltraCrete Instaline

Sustainability and environmental impact is extremely important to UltraCrete and a significant consideration when developing products and solutions for today’s highway maintenance problems.

UltraCrete are constantly investing in research and development to continuously decrease their use of raw materials by testing new recycled materials. Many of  their high performance repair products contain recycled material or are manufactured using renewable sources and UltraCrete Instaline is no different!

Products containing binder material are, more often than not, manufactured from natural sources  that cannot be replenished – an issue we should all be concerned about. However, Instaline thermoplastic road marking is different from similar products on the market. More than 70% of its binder material is made from renewable sources, helping to lessen the pressure on the country’s plummeting natural resources.

Manufactured using over 90% recycled glass particles to deliver an impressive Skid Resistance Value (SRV) of 55, UltraCrete Instaline is also phthalate free. This dangerous chemical has received negative press coverage over recent months after researchers linked phthalates to asthma, obesity, Type II Diabetes and even some forms of cancer – a worrying though for anyone who regularly comes in to contact with the chemical.

What’s more, all coloured pigments used in Instaline thermoplastic road marking are 100% organic.

As well as its significant environmental properties, Instaline also boasts a number of high performance qualities.

Ideal for the reinstatement of line areas on car pars, roads and carriageways, Instaline thermoplastic road marking is the only material that provides a skid resistance value in excess of 55, straight from the box.

Available in 3 colours, Instaline is delivered pre-beaded, without ‘difficult to remove’ plastic backing and will remain flexible and easy to un-roll in temperatures as low as 5°C – facilitating an easy and straightforward application.

What’s more, Instaline is available in 5m rolls and can be cut to your exact requirements, eliminating wasted product.
