Evonik, a German manufacturer of specialty chemicals, has supplied road-marking products to Dubai's Road and Transport Authority (RTA) for a road infrastructure project in the emirate.The RTA project was completed in collaboration with Prismo Gulf, a UAE-based contractor for road and bridge maintenance and street rehabilitation, said the company in a statement.According to Evonik, the company's Degaroute-based cold plastic system was utilised to create very visible red road markings on Dubai-Al Ain road indicating the reduction in speed limit at a high traffic volume area.

The Degaroute helps to prevent accidents because of the prominent and readable road markings and the product range is also ecologically friendly due to its durability, stated the firm.

This binder effectively and economically enhances road safety because it can be used to create road marking systems with specific features, such as reflectively, anti-skid, high visibility and longevity, it added.

Evonik began the first set of trials for this project in October 2013 followed by a second one in June last year.

The project rolled out in June 2017 with the municipalities and road transport authorities in UAE keen to enhance road safety in the country in order to meet the agenda and objectives set forward by the Federal National Council (FNC) to reduce road fatalities.
