01. Road Surface Preparation
  • Clean the road surface thoroughly to remove dirt, debris, and loose materials. Use power washing or sweeping for effective cleaning.
  • Repair any cracks or potholes on the surface to ensure a smooth and even application of thermoplastic material.
  • Using pre marking machines and base-coating sprayers to enhance road markings 
02. Ultimate Thermoplastic Road Markings Supplies Buying Guide

03. Thermoplastic Line Striping Training & Practice
  1. Heat thermoplastic material to the recommended temperature (180°C to 200°C) using the applicator’s preheating system.
  2. Adjust temperature and pressure as per the manufacturer’s guidelines for optimal flow and consistency.
  3. Apply thermoplastic material along desired markings, maintaining a steady pace and pressure.
  4. For visibility, apply glass beads to hot, tacky thermoplastic for retroreflectivity in low-light conditions.
05. Drying and Curing
  • Allow the thermoplastic markings to cool and dry completely. The curing time can vary depending on the ambient temperature and thickness of the applied material.
  • During the curing process, ensure that the marked area is protected from traffic or any other activities that may damage or distort the markings.
