Imprinted Thermoplastic Coloured Surfacing Material
Quality management systems to ISO 9001:2008
TexPrint is a hard wearing hot-applied wearing course
consisting of blended thermoplastic polymerised resins,
plasticiser, graded granite aggregate, selected fillers
TexPrint can be applied to concrete, bituminous and most
other substrates providing they are in a stable condition.
Concrete, stone rich and polished surfaces require priming
with an approved tack coat. Typical uses include traffic
calming schemes, raised junctions, urban regeneration
projects, parking bays, heritage areas, private drives, central
reservations, speed tables, roundabouts and overrun areas.
TexPrint has several advantages over traditional block paving.
• Suitable for new and old surfaces
• Better long term cost effectiveness
• Maintenance free
• High skid resistance – minimum SRV 60 when
measured with a pendulum tester
• Available in a range of patterns and colour combinations
• No excavation necessary – quick to install
• Improved safety over blocks
TexPrint is pigmented throughout to maintain the selected
colour for its entire extended service life. It is available in
a wide range of lead-free colours including red, light grey,
medium grey, dark grey, green, blue, brown, fawn, traffic
white and black. Special colour requirements can be
formulated on request subject to adequate notice.
Due to the limitations of the printing process the colours shown may not be an

TexPrint binder is a blend of modified rosin ester, plasticiser,
thermoplastic ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer and pigment.
TexPrint uses granite or basalt aggregate
• Minimum Polished Stone Value (PSV) 60+.
• Typical Aggregate Abrasion Value (AAV) 4.9
TexPrint is supplied in 25kg meltable polyethylene bags
on 1.25 tonne pallets (50 bags per pallet). 1 tonne pallets
are available by request (40 bags per pallet). All pallets are
shrouded and stretch-wrapped for protection.
Prior to application the surface must be sound and in good
condition. It must also be clean, dry, and free from foreign
matter such as de-icing salt. It is recommended that the
surface be cleaned using Hot Compressed Air (HCA).
The area should be battened to prevent overspill, cutting
in where necessary. Tack coat may be applied by roller,
brush or spray if required.
The bags should be loaded into a preheater/mixer fitted with
temperature control. If the mixer requires a colour change it
should be thoroughly clean before adding the fresh material.
The material must be agitated to avoid aggregate and binder
segregation. Allow the pigment to disperse thoroughly before
application. After melting and mixing within a temperature
range of 190˚C - 225˚C the material should be spread on the
ground, levelled by hot irons, sanded and then imprinted with
the chosen design using a metal patterned mould. Average
spread rate for a 15mm thick application is 37kg per square
metre/27m² per tonne.
TexPrint can be trafficked once it has cooled to 35˚C, typically
60 minutes after application. This period may need to be
extended in very hot weather.
