Parking Lots, just like roads, often require legends, words, numbers or symbols on the pavement to convey important directional or informational messages. NO PARKING, STOP, FIRE LANE, SLOW, LOADING ZONE, ENTER, EXIT are just a few examples.
Often times paint is used to create these markings. The downside to this is that paint generally only lasts a year or so or even less in high traffic areas. Also, an expensive stencil and a complicated paint sprayer are needed to apply the words or logo.
Preformed thermoplastic melt down letters, numbers and symbols are an alternative to paint with several distinct advantages. Melt down thermoplastic letters will out last paint up to 7-10 times depending on traffic conditions. This means that instead of having these items painted 7-10 times you only have to have them done once. Also, no contractor is needed to apply melt down letters. Anyone can apply the thermoplastic using a broom or blower and a simple propane hand torch. Application involves heating a clean surface, laying down the thermoplastic letters and then continuing to heat until a nice bond is achieved. The letters are ready for traffic in a matter of minutes. In addition to ease of installation, thermoplastic letters or symbols are reflective meaning that they show up well at night as well as in the daytime.
Note - for application on cement surfaces you would use our thermobond product. You mix the amount you need, apply to the back of the letters and to the cement if you wish. Then apply the letters and heat mildly until the letters conform to the surface. This process is actually easier with the only extra step being having to mix the bonding agent. Much less heat is needed using this process. If you wish, you can use thermobond on asphalt appications as well.
