Durable Pavement Markings
Durable Pavement Markings are used once temporary switches and construction phasing is complete, or for restriping.
If being used in Construction, its important to schedule Durable Markings as one of the last phases as they are easily damaged by construction traffic.
Epoxy is a durable marking that is economical, easy to place and stands up well to traffic and weather.
Following the spray, a bead of your choice can be applied to enhance the markings reflectivity, including a wet reflective element that can be added to enhance reflectivity during weather.
Epoxy can be applied both long line as well as a solution for intersection markings. Parking lots are increasingly choosing epoxy as well to help reduce down time and parking lot closings.
Preformed plastic usage has grown over the years as it stands up to traffic and weather well, while providing a reflectivity that is unmatched in the product marketplace.
Utilizing Contrast Tape (pictured left) provides a easily identifiable line on concrete and older asphalt, while preformed plastic without the black borders is more economical being used on newer asphalt.
Preformed plastic comes in several different types as well as uses, including intersection markings (turn arrows, stop bars, cross walks).
Paint is a economical product for a lot of roadways that do not see heavy traffic.
Paint is applied, and immediately followed with the specified bead. Different bead types are available depending on the purpose and traffic that will be utilizing the roadway.
Paint can also be used for way finding (arrows, only's) and pedestrian markings.
Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)
Relatively new in the marketplace, MMA has grown to be the go to product in difficult traffic situations where longevity and/or color delineation is necessary, both for long line and intersection markings.
Markings can be applied in almost any color necessary, as well as the basic white for way finding and pedestrian crosswalks. As color delineation becomes increasingly necessary (such as toll lanes, HOV lanes, bike lanes, etc.), this product is easily adaptable to any substrate, as well as in any weather.
MMA can be sprayed or rolled onto the surface and provides a lasting mark with reflectivity through a bead specifically designed for the product.
