Röhm presents DEGAROUTE® proTerra for the first time at the INTERTRAFFIC trade fair

29 March 2022

Global megatrends such as sustainability and environmental protection have been playing a crucial role in the road marking sector for some time now. Reducing emissions from increasing traffic volumes is a major concern across the world and is a driving factor for innovation in road construction. With DEGAROUTE® proTerra, Röhm is now offering a resin for road markings that contains at least 30% recycled methyl methacrylate (RMMA) providing a reduced CO₂ footprint.

With DEGAROUTE proTerra, Röhm has developed a product for cold plastic characterised by excellent visibility and durability while at the same time offering a resource-saving alternative to conventional binders for road markings. It is therefore making a contribution to Röhm GmbH’s sustainability strategy, "Track 2030”

DEGAROUTE-based road markings are solvent-free, reactive systems. They produce almost no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and do not require external heat input during application. "Due to their longevity, road markings based on DEGAROUTE have always contributed to resource efficiency.

DEGAROUTE proTerra significantly increases this efficiency. The expansion of our product portfolio allows us to even better support the sustainability goals aimed for by our customers,” says Jochen Henkels, Head of the Methacrylate Resins Business Unit at Röhm.

DEGAROUTE proTerra is presented as a new solution with a reduced CO₂ footprint. Laboratory and application tests show that the quality and performance of this innovation is comparable to already established products. The advantages of methacrylate-based road markings remain unchanged: DEGAROUTE proTerra combines durability, excellent visual and acoustic properties and fast processing with short curing times while saving resources.

Products and services by Röhm, with the proTerra brand addition, make a contribution to reducing the CO₂ footprint and to save resources such as raw materials, energy or water.
