Potters® ASNZS 2009 Optics – Drop On
ASNZ 2009 beads are available in both Standard and HR versions and are all APAS approved. While both grades meet or exceed the requirements, the HR versions must pass an additional minimum retro-reflectivity laboratory test. Please view Specialty Highway Optics for information about Pristine Grades. A variety of packaging options are available to meet customer needs. Adhesion-coated versions are available for enhanced bonding when required for specific applications such as Cold Applied Plastic and UV-cured products.
Potters® Intermix Optics
In Australia and NZ, APAS approved Intermix beads complying with AS2009 Type C-HR are available. Potters is proud that our Australian made Intermix beads are APAS 0042 approved, which is a requirement for use in all APAS 0041 approved thermoplastic products.
In India, Indonesia and throughout APAC, BS6088 A is available as Intermix beads.
Potters® Premix Optics
Premix beads are applied to thin film paint materials and are typically smaller than drop-on beads. Talk to us about the additional benefits of “wet paint protection” using P93 premix beads.
Potters® Antiskid Optics – Drop On
ASNZS 2009 beads are also available in a 70/30 mix with specifically sized glass aggregate where additional antiskid properties are required. Talk to your local representative about the particle size grading for your specific application.
