When it comes to the signage present in at a commercial property the ideal signage would not only properly direct vehicle, bike and pedestrian traffic, but also enhance safety, be long-lasting, and cost-effective. With thermoplastic signage all of these are a possibility.
Thermoplastic is a hot-applied road-marking compound that is used to create highly reflective striping’s with long-term performance. It is based on either alkyd or hydrocarbon resins and contains a significant portion of premix glass beads. This combination makes it ideal for road signage that is reflective and durable in even high traffic situations.
Thermoplastic begins as a solid powder or preformed blocks, is heated and uses specialized machines during construction to be melted. Once in a liquid state, it is transferred to a marking machine, which applies the hot substance.
Thermoplastic signage has many benefits, such as:
It Enhances Safety
One of the most beneficial aspects to using this thermoplastic signage is the added safety that it brings to the table. Thermoplastic signage can be made highly reflective allowing for optimal sight during the darkest of nights and worst of storms where visibility can be poor. There is also the added bonus of utilizing multiple layers of these markings to create rumble strips alerting drivers of upcoming areas of danger, warning them so they will watch their speed. Resulting in safer areas for pedestrians and less accidents.
The lifespan of this type of signage is much longer than ordinary line striping paint and can allow business owners to enjoy the benefits for a longer period of time. This extended life, leads us to the last benefit of thermoplastic signage.
It’s Cost Effective
Thermoplastic signage lasts much longer than ordinary asphalt paint; therefore, it needs to be replaced less often making it a more cost effective option for business owners in regards to labor and materials.
Overall, the benefits of utilizing thermoplastic signage are an advantage to business owners, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike.
