Kraton offers thermoplastic materials designed for spray, extrusion or profiled road marking applications.
In spray applications, the thermoplastic markings are typically applied at 100 mils (2.5 mm) for new markings or 30-60 mils (0.75-1.5 mm) for retracing. Typically used for center, edge or lane markings, spray applications can achieve higher durability and visibility with the right formulation.
Extrusion applications are used for center, edge or lane markings as well as intersection and transverse rumble markings. These markings are applied in liquid form by contractors using a handheld screed box or truck mounted extrusion equipment at a thickness of 90-180 mils (2.3-4.6 mm), offering long service life with excellent visibility.
Designed for center, edge or lane lines, profiled thermoplastic markings are applied as inverted or raised bumps to provide excellent durability, audible lane departure warning and improved wet or night visibility.
