Storm Drain Markers - Easy to Install, Difficult to Remove
- Easy installation with adhesive. Just apply some to the back of the marker and attach to curb. Adhesive requires no mixing.
- Storm drain marking helps in educating the public that most storm drains go directly into waterways untreated. Much more eco-friendly than marking drains with spray paint.
- Assists in complying with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 when used as Best Management Practice in Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans.
Public education and outreach is part of the NPDES requirement. Storm drain marking is an established method of involving the public and increasing community awareness about non-point source pollution.
Unfortunately storm drain marking using spray painted stencils is messy, time consuming, and contradictory to the environmental message being presented (it eventually washes down the "protected" drain). It's also ultimately quite expensive as it must be re-done every couple of years.
Our storm drain marker is the only performance proven alternative available.
The 4" Duracast Storm Drain Marker is easy to install and difficult to remove. It is made from a .030 proprietary white plastic with UV inhibitors and a layering of materials for flexibility and impact resistance. The printing is on the face of the material which is then covered with a layer of UV clearcoating for UV and abrasion resistance. Finally a polyurethane "dome" is applied to the face of the marker. This optically clear, self-healing, non-yellowing Duracast surface protects against mechanical and chemical abrasion. The Duracast surface effectively doubles U.V. resistance as well.

Duracast Style Markers
Abrasion & UV Resistant
The das Duracast Curb Marker is made from a .030 opaque white plastic. This proprietary material contains U.V. inhibitors and a layering of materials for flexibility and impact resistance. The printing is on the surface of the material which is then covered with the SolarShield clear coat for added U.V. resistance. Finally a polyurethane "dome" is applied to the face of the marker. This optically clear, self-healing, non-yellowing, Duracast surface protects against mechanical and chemical abrasion. The Duracast surface effectively doubles U.V. resistance as well.
Duracast Weatherometer Info
Winona State University/Composite Materials Technology Center - 3/2/98
Tested: Duracast style das Curb Marker. Stock Titles all colors reflective & non-reflective.
Testing Mechanism: QUV Weatherometer
Cycle: 4 hours UVA at peak emission at 60°C followed by 4 hours of condensation at 50°C.
Duration: 2,000 hours.
Results Summary: "The test duration of the das Curb Marker is equivalent to 30 years of outside exposure."
" None of the exposed Duracast samples showed any signs of fading when compared to unexposed samples and the Duracast finish did not yellow or cloud."
"None of the exposed samples showed any signs of cracking."
