From brightly colored parking lot arrows to clearly defined school zones, thermoplastic striping keeps our roads and walkways organized and safe. These super durable road markings are fast becoming the go-to choice for property managers, community managers, civil engineers, business owners – basically anyone who wants to make sure they can clearly designate areas where vehicles or pedestrians should not be! But why is thermoplastic striping so popular? Well in this blog post we’ll explain why it’s a great alternative to other common pavement marking materials and provide some sound advice on how to ensure your thermoplastic lines will last long into the future. 

What Advantages Are Offered by Thermoplastic Markings?

Thermoplastic striping can deliver several important benefits. Depending on your situation, you may find some of the benefits more critical than others.

1. Longevity: Painted lines typically have a life of around two years. Thermoplastic markings has an average life of six to eight years. Therefore, although your initial costs will be slightly higher for thermoplastic markings, the additional cost can be more than offset over time.

2. Minimal Disruption: Painted lines require road closures that are longer in distance as well as in time. This can lead to traffic jams or other disruptions. When applying thermoplastics, the traffic will be disrupted for a much shorter distance, and the speedy hardening process means that the closed area can begin receiving traffic much sooner than the time required for paint to dry.

3. Visibility: Reflective beads can enhance visibility on wet pavements or at night. When reflective beads are applied on top of painted lines, the beads quickly wear away. Thermoplastics can incorporate reflective beads throughout the entire thickness of the material, so the lines remain more visible.

4. Damage Resistance: Unlike paint, thermoplastics are highly resistant to petrochemicals, including oil, brake fluid, diesel, power steering fluid, and gasoline. Paint can suffer damage that results in peeling, cracking, or flaking, but this is not the case with thermoplastics.
