Next-generation premium markings offer widest temperature application range

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 11, 2023 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that the City of Sacramento has selected a new ENNIS-FLINT® by PPG area marking for part of its bicycle lane infrastructure. Ennis-Flint MMAX® Extended Season area marking is a highly durable, next-generation product designed to stand up to the demands of traffic and hot climates. 

Characterized by anti-skid properties and high visibility over a long lifespan, next-generation Ennis-Flint MMAX Extended Season premium marking can enhance safety for bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians. It can be applied to pavement surfaces from 35 F to 150 F and has three times the working time of most competitive products on surfaces at 110 F or more. Anti-skid properties are provided by hard aggregates that are included in the application kit.

“The use of Ennis-Flint MMAX Extended Season marking in Sacramento serves as a turning point for other cities seeking to apply area markings in hotter climates,” said Maria Wang, PPG director, product management – liquid coatings, Traffic Solutions. “The ability to apply this product at higher temperatures benefits everything from project timelines to public safety. Our commitment to continued innovation in traffic safety solutions is critical to infrastructure improvement efforts nationwide, and our product also delivers a high aesthetic value.”

Sacramento will utilize EF Green, which meets the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s color requirement for use in bicycle lanes. The Sacramento region is one of the most bike-friendly cities in the nation, with more than 1,700 miles of bikeways. The city has more than 10 separate, active transportation projects, including the Central City Mobility project which will create more than 60 blocks of parking-protected bikeways.
