What is the soybean oil in the formulations used for?
We use the soybean oil in BioStripe® and BioSealcoat® to form the products’ binder. This is what causes the paint and sealcoat to stick to surfaces and eventually evaporate into the air. Binders usually consist of petroleum additives.
What quality standards does BioStripe meet?
BioStripe meets all federal specification requirements of TT-P-1952 with a 20-minute no-pickup dry time.
Do I need to order new equipment to use BioStripe?
No. BioStripe is compatible with any traditional waterborne striping equipment.
What type of containers are BioStripe and BioSealcoat available in?
BioStripe and BioSealcoat can be ordered in 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums, and 275-gallon totes.
What colors are available?
BioStripe comes yellow, white, blue, red, black, and bike-path green. BioSealcoat comes in black and bike-path green. Custom colors are available upon request.
What percentage of BioStripe is biorenewable?
BioStripe is a USDA-certified biobased product. While the USDA requires at least 25% of traffic paint formulations to earn this certification, each BioStripe product’s formulation contains at least 47% biorenewable content. BioSealcoat contains about 33% biorenewable content.
