Thermoplastic Markings 101

From crosswalks to loading zones to parking lots, striping and markings surround us everyday and are an important part of any paving job. For business owners and property managers, maintaining their paved assets is not only for the aesthetics, but more importantly for the safety of everyone who uses it. Thermoplastic provides the greatest durability and visibility.

So, what exactly is Thermoplastic and how does it work?

In a nutshell, Thermoplastic is a type of road marking paint that is an environmentally safe compound containing binder, pigments, filler and glass beads that are combined, heated and applied as a liquid. Thermoplastic pavement marking is a process that involves applying thermoplastic to an asphalt or concrete surface. 

Thermoplastic is better than regular traffic paint for a few reasons:

  • Enhanced Safety: The materials in Thermoplastic allow for high visibility that is especially critical at night and during bad weather. 
  • Durable: It is able to withstand the wear and tear of high traffic areas six times longer than latex-line striping paint or regular traffic paint.
  • Cost-effective: Its durability also lends to it not having to be replaced very often. This is a cost-effective investment for business owners. 
  • Dries Fast: It can be applied on wet surfaces and in cold weather conditions. It dries quickly, so there is no need to shut down revenue-generating traffic on your property or general traffic flow.

With the high demand for this service in the Charlotte area, we saw the need to meet it successfully since subcontracting the job often proved to be timely.
