Did you get paint on your vehicle?

Every year Provincial Road Markings conducts road painting operations starting in mid April and continues operations into the fall. Motorists are advised to heed the warnings and follow the instructions on PRM’s road painting vehicles.
Motorists are also urged to watch out for safety cones and other markers indicating fresh or wet paint and are warned specifically to stay off any wet yellow or white painted road lines that might be encountered.

PRM generally uses environmentally friendly waterborne paint. PRM recommends that you take prompt action if you accidentally get road paint on your vehicle. The following instructions for removing road paint are suggested.

Please understand that Provincial Road Markings does not accept responsibility for any damage that results from driving on wet paint.

Procedures for Removing Road Paint

As soon as possible wash the vehicle at a hot water pressurized car wash. Doing this should loosen and remove most of the paint unless it has dried for more than a day.

If the hot water pressurized car wash does not remove the paint, allow the water to dry and then spray the residue with WD-40. Allow the WD-40 to stay on the area for 1-2 hours and then rewash the vehicle. The WD-40 usually softens the road striping paint without hurting the vehicle finish. If there is a heavy concentration of paint the procedure can be repeated.

For paint that has dried for several days or for heavy accumulations, apply a generous coating of petroleum jelly (vaseline) to the dried road striping paint. Allow it to stay on for 8 to 12 hours to soften the paint and then take the vehicle to a hot water pressurized car wash and wash it. This should remove most of the road striping paint. If necessary, repeat the procedure.

Do Not Scrub the Finish With a Solvent or Scouring Cleanser! This will Damage the Finish

After cleaning the road striping paint away apply a good coat of car wax to the vehicle’s finish. The wax should remove any lasting signs of the road striping paint.

Paint removal from wheel wells can be very difficult because they are normally a flat finish. Apply a liberal coating of vaseline to the area and leave it on for several days and then pressure wash.

Applying an alcohol like rubbing alcohol to the area in the wheel well may also help soften and remove any residue left after the vaseline procedure is completed. Again DO NOT SCRUB! Just apply with a very wet rag or sponge. Remember that alcohol is flammable so please be careful.
