COLLEGEVILLE, PA. – February 4, 2021 – Dow (NYSE:DOW) announces its newly developed DURATRACK™ 2K Technology for broad area markings, including green bike lanes. Dow’s green bike lane coatings offer the handling and spray ability of a waterborne system, with the performance and durability of a 2K system. This innovation yields pleasing results such as superior adhesion, skid-resistance, UV durability and quick drying time, while enhancing workzone safety through a speedy and efficient installation process. Dow is partnering with local and city road officials to install real-world trials to demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach to deliver cost-savings and enhance safety for cyclists and drivers alike.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn attention to the need for more cities to provide safe multi-modal transportation solutions,” said Dr. Joy Gallagher, global segment leader for Road Markings at Dow. “Bike lanes give citizens an efficient alternative to getting around while also promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.”

Dow’s flagship road marking resins, FASTRACK™ 2706 Emulsion and FASTRACK™ 3427 Emulsion, have been helping customers formulate reflective pavement markings that meet performance and sustainability requirements for decades. Dow’s commitment to sustainable innovation has led to the development of:
FASTRACK™ 5408A Emulsion, the next generation all-acrylic binder for waterborne pavement markings, offering improved durability for year-round visibility, and extended seasonal application without compromising dry time versus existing waterborne technologies.
FASTRACK™ HD-21A Emulsion, Dow’s high-build solution, offering excellent durability and longer service life, meets the Federal TTP-1952 Type III specification. Given the critical role of the polymer in paint performance, it is important for DOTs to be confident in the quality of the materials used in the paints applied to their roadways.
