Thermoplastic

Liquid-Applied Thermoplastic: An environmentally friendly compound containing pigments, glass beads, binder, and fillers which become a liquid is heated above 400º F and applied before it cools and hardens. Thermoplastic is typically heated in a tank and then is applied to the ground in liquid form. Once it dries, the thermoplastic becomes a solid material. Thermoplastic provides superior durability and is mostly applied to pavement markings in roadways.

Only available in white and yellow.

Typical projects where liquid-applied thermoplastics are used:

  • Centerline
  • Edge line
  • Lane Line
  • Skips
  • Crosswalks

Preformed Thermoplastic:  Thermoplastic can also be applied in preformed sections. These sections have been manufactured and can provide more custom colors and designs than regular Liquid-Applied Thermoplastic. They are placed on the ground and heated with a torch to melt the sections and bond them to the asphalt.

Typical projects where preformed thermoplastics are used:

  • Bike Lanes
  • Arrows
  • Text
  • Customizable
