Overview Premix Glass Beads for Traffic Paint  

JIS R 3301 Premix Glass Beads, meeting the JIS R 3301 Japanese Standard, is blended into paint and thermoplastics during the manufacturing stage. JIS R 3301 Premix Glass Beads are known as Premix glass beads. JIS R 3301 Premix Glass Beads have high longevity due to their size. As the road marking paint wears over time due to friction from tires and weathers, the premix glass beads that are embedded into the paint are exposed which ensures retro-reflectivity. This helps to increase the longevity of the paint as well as the safety of motorists. Glass beads are widely used in traffic paint to enhance road safety by improving the visibility of road markings, especially at night or in poor weather conditions.
