Thermoplastic striping, or thermo striping, is the preferred method of road marking and a DOT requirement for new and existing entrances to state roads. Even if you haven’t heard of it, you have certainly seen it when you have been driving. The material is comprised of glass beads, binders, and pigments. Thermo striping is heated to about 400 degrees, and then melted, before being applied to the asphalt or concrete surface. Thermo striping is applied using sophisticated machinery. Here at Pickens Construction, we have the right equipment, and we have this process down to a science.
As a road marker, thermo striping offers many distinct advantages. For one, because it is applied at such a high temperature, thermo striping dries very quickly. This means that the road does not need to be shut down while the material dries—a huge plus for drivers. Secondly, thermo striping is highly reflective, which increases driver visibility at night. Thermo striping truly saves lives. Thirdly, thermo striping is very cost-effective compared to other methods of road marking. Finally, thermo striping is a very durable material that does not easily crack or break. Thermo striping will last for a very long time.
Because thermo striping has so many advantages, it is used for a variety of construction projects. As mentioned before, it is commonly used to mark roads. In addition to that, it is used to mark parking lots, entrances, and crosswalks. Here at Pickens Construction, we specialize in every type of thermo striping application.
