The Installation Process:
- Ensure that the area to be marked out is clean, free of grease, oil, road salt, and moisture. Any loose grit or debris should be swept away to ensure you get the best results.
- If you are marking old tarmac, block paving or concrete you will require a primer. This is available in aerosol form, or in a 5-litre container. If you are applying to new tarmac you can skip this.
- Lay your markings on the ground and position them so you are happy with the layout. It is vital that the position is correct, as once you carry out the next step the markings will be permanent.
- Use a gas burner to heat and melt the markings onto the ground. During the heating process, glass beads can be added to enhance the skid and slip resistance of the thermoplastic material.
- After things have cooled down you are done! This usually only takes a few minutes and you can allow traffic to use the area.
