Thermoplastic Road Paint Formulations

Thermoplastic road paint is one of the most popular types of road paint around the world. If you need road paint that provides fantastic quality for the longest time at the best price, thermoplastic is the paint for your roads. If you are looking to learn more about thermoplastic road paint formulations and why it matters, read on below.

What Is Thermoplastic Road Paint?

Thermoplastic paint for road markings is part of the family of thermoplastics, a compound of synthetic resins that hardens when cooled. Thermoplastic is what makes many materials, including plastic bottles, medical devices, toys, and much more. As a road paint, it promises road markings with high durability and visibility.

The Superior Quality of Thermoplastic Road Paint

Thermoplastic road paint is superior compared to water, latex, or other kinds of road paint due to its high tolerance to harsh weather and traffic conditions. Criteria for long-lasting road paint are met in thermoplastic. Aside from high durability, you also have the following benefits:

  • Long-lasting retroreflectivity 
  • Stellar adhesion to asphalt
  • Color stability
  • Skid-resistance
  • Non-toxicity
  • Chemical and stain-resistance
  • Code-compliance
  • Fast installation

Whether you are installing road markings on arterial highways, business parkways, or long backroads, you can be sure that thermoplastic paint will be both a fair price and last as long as five years.

Thermoplastic Road Paint Formulations

Thermoplastic road paint formulations depend on the manufacturer, so it is best to contact Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation for details on the paint for your project. Even so, thermoplastic road paint formulations typically consist of polymer resins, a binder, glass beads for reflectivity, and pigments. In the factory, a machine might mix together these ingredients, test the paint, and bag and ship them to thermoplastic road paint installers. The result is a product that will perform well in the areas of color, density, luminosity, drying time, and skid resistance.
