people: the more innovative "road signs" are drawn, the better

[China paint information] in 1992, zhuguigen, 43, made a road marking experiment with his own paint on the cement floor poured in front of his house; In 2008, 16 years later, he founded Zhejiang brother road sign coating Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as brother road sign) and 3M company, the world's most "outstanding" road sign coating enterprise, competed on the same stage. With their excellent products, they shared the autumn scenery with it in the pavement marking project of Hangzhou Bay sea crossing bridge

in July of the same year, during the pavement marking construction of Shanghai Pudong Airport, the company produced 3. A "self-propelled two-component structure type marking machine" whose oil return pipe should be inserted below the oil level of the oil tank, replacing the German product, which cost 1.6 million yuan. The former is not only cheap, simple to operate, but also has a more beautiful line shape

according to incomplete statistics, there are more than 300 road marking enterprises in China. Brother road marking has become a well deserved "leader" with 20000 tons of road marking paint per year (accounting for 20% of the domestic market share), 1000 sets of road marking machinery and 30000 square meters of road marking projects

from a little-known family workshop to a leading enterprise in the domestic road sign industry, the secret weapon of brother road signs is continuous technological innovation

zhuguigen is a genuine farmer with only a junior high school education. His greatest characteristic is that he is willing to learn, likes to ponder, and dares to eat crabs. In 1991, he, who produced special inks, occasionally heard from the driver who delivered the standard goods for the operation of the electronic universal testing machine: "there are white lines on the roads of big cities in Shanghai and Hangzhou. It is clear which road to take and when to change the line when driving!" Zhuguigen had an idea. He immediately found relevant information and finally learned that these "white lines" are called "pavement markings", which are indispensable in modern highway traffic

therefore, zhuguigen began to study pavement marking paint. He built a simple laboratory in the factory, relying on a little chemical foundation accumulated in the production of ink, and doing experiments while learning. If you can't do it anymore, you should ask the relevant experts modestly. After a whole year of trial and error, the first product was finally produced

at that time, the roads in the countryside were all gravel roads, so it was impossible to carry out field tests. He poured a 500 square meter cement sun farm in front of his house for marking experiments. After the success of the field experiment, the company began to bring the products to the market. In the process of product sales, zhuguigen realized the importance of the construction team and tools, so he began to ponder over the production of marking machines and study the construction technology

in the fierce market competition, zhuguigen is more aware of the importance of innovation. In 2003, he retired from the position of the company's boss and devoted himself to the research and development of new products. The company has established a 2600 square meter R & D center to recruit talents from all over the country. At present, the company has 38 scientific researchers, accounting for more than 40% of the company's employees. The annual R & D expenditure of the company accounts for about 5% of the sales revenue, and has exceeded 8% annually since 2006

since 2007, brother road signs have applied for 28 patents, and 2 invention patents and 13 utility model patents have been authorized. The company has been rated as a high-tech enterprise in Zhejiang Province, and has become the main participant in the national standard for color pavement anti-skid markings

under the leadership of zhuguigen, the enterprise independently developed 23 provincial-level new products, 16 of which reached the domestic leading level. In particular, the provincial major special key project - "high refraction all-weather reflective microcrystalline ceramic beads" has a reflective refractive index of 2.4 and can reflect light as usual at 5cm underwater. It is the most advanced reflective material for road markings in the world at present, and its cost performance is significantly better than the similar products of 3M company in the United States

Shensu Zhejiang Anhui Expressway, Guizhou Yangwan tunnel project, Urumqi urban highway... At present, 10 construction teams of brother road signs are active in the construction of expressways and urban roads in 16 provinces, cities and autonomous regions across the country. Their superior coating performance and advanced marking technology have won the praise of the project owners and the transportation department. The goal of brother roadmap in the next few years is to go abroad and enter the overseas market

the bigger the business, the busier zhuguigen became. He was not idle even during the Spring Festival. After the new year's Eve dinner, he became the first developer in China. His innovative motto is: we should not be too greedy, but the more we are greedy for scientific and technological innovation, the better - we should eat what we eat, stare at what we eat in the bowl, and look at what we eat in the pot
