What is Thermoplastic Striping?
Thermoplastic striping for road markings is one of the most common types of BC Traffic Specialist Construction Services. The thermoplastic material consists of pigments and binders. One unique characteristic of thermoplastic striping is the use of glass bead on the material, which makes the stripes reflective and visible at night. Heated to approximately 400 degrees, this type of material is melted first and then forms durable, longer lasting lines and symbols with nighttime visibility. Thermoplastic pavement marking is ready for use almost immediately, without drying time.
What’s the Benefit of Thermoplastic Pavement Markings?
If you are looking for a road-marking method that can last for several years, thermoplastic pavement marking is indeed your very cost-effective solution based on its balance between cost and performance longevity. While traffic paint usually lasts for a year in low traffic areas, and even less in higher traffic roads, thermoplastic striping will outlast regular paint by many types. By choosing thermoplastic road and parking lot striping, you can maintain road markings in good condition for years to come, and additionally, save your road markings budget. In particular, many states require that higher-volume highways are re-striped up to three times a year with paint, but only every two years with thermoplastic markings.
Striping is a vital part of road paving job, and thermoplastic road markings are the best choice for finishing the project. The process allows for quicker striping and long lasting results. Therefore, thermoplastic striping has dominated the traffic marking industry for decades and continued to be the product of choice because of its durability, long wearing traits.
