The purposes and objectives of this experimental study are: 1) to evaluate the application and performance characteristics of hot-melt plastic, pavement-striping materials which are presently prominent and known commercially as "Catatherm" and "Perma-Line"; 2) to compare the performance of these materials with the performance of painted stripes applied and re-newed according to the current practices of the Kentucky Department of Highways; and 3) to evaluate the economics of these striping materials in terms of cost-per-mile per-day-of-useful-life, The project is described more fully in the "Proposal... " (approved by Division Engineer, September 7, 1962) and in Report No. 1 (Pre-Construction Report) submitted September 19, 1962. Attachment No. 1 shows the location of the test sites.
