Waterborne traffic paint is most often used to delineate low volume roads and temporary traffic patterns on construction projects. Typically, waterborne traffic paints perform best when placed on dry surfaces with ambient temperatures above 50°F and relative humidity below 80%.

Waterborne traffic paints are placed at wet film thicknesses of 0.008” to 0.020”, depending on their use. Dry times depend on temperature and humidity and may range from two to ten minutes. Upon drying, waterborne traffic paints produce a “dry-film” thickness of approximately one-half the “wet-film” application thickness.
