Title (EN) PAVEMENT MARKINGS, REFLECTIVE ELEMENTS, AND METHODS OF MAKING MICROSPHERES
(FR) MARQUAGES ROUTIERS, ÉLÉMENTS RÉFLÉCHISSANTS ET PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION DE MICROSPHÈRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Presently described are retroreflective articles, such as pavement markings, that comprise transparent microspheres partially embedded in a binder (e.g., polymeric). Also described are microspheres (e.g., glass-ceramic), methods of making microspheres, as well as compositions of glass materials and compositions of glass-ceramic materials. The microspheres generally comprise lanthanide series oxide(s), titanium oxide (TiO2), and optionally zirconium oxide (ZrO2).
(FR)La présente invention concerne des articles rétroréfléchissants, tels que des marquages routiers, qui comprennent des microsphères transparentes partiellement incorporées dans un liant (par exemple, polymère). La présente invention concerne en outre des microsphères (par exemple, verre-céramique), des procédés de fabrication de microsphères, ainsi que des compositions de matériaux vitreux et des compositions de matériaux verre-céramique. Les microsphères comprennent généralement un/des oxyde(s) de la série des lanthanides, de l'oxyde de titane (TiO2), et facultativement de l'oxyde de zirconium (ZrO2).
