Retrolux glass beads provide enhanced retroreflectivity to road marking materials.

Product Description


Retrolux is our range of high performance glass beads with high refractive indices which impart excellent retroreflectivity to newly applied road marking lines.

Retrolux is applied as a drop-on medium to the wet line before cooling, drying or curing, depending on which system is used. Retrolux glass beads should be applied immediately after the road marking has been laid whilst it is still wet.

All Retrolux glass beads conform to BS EN 1423 and are sold packaged in 25 kg approx. sacks for ease of handling.

Retrolux is available in standard Class A and Class B grades and also in different grades having a higher refractive index, for use on the most challenging sites where improving road safety is of paramount importance.
