Line Marking FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right line marker for your job

1. What is line marking?

Also known as road surface marking, line marking uses specialised line marking paint to create common signs and symbols on roadways or private roads, pedestrian walkways, parking lots, and asphalt driveways.

These lines signify certain actions that can and can't be taken and communicate messages to those using the pathways. Some symbols, like a broken white line seen on city streets, are nearly universal in meaning. Others, like thick, horizontal white lines bounded by two vertical lines, are specific to certain countries.

These lines aren't usually hand-drawn anymore. The area, thickness of the lines, shapes, and orientation may be calculated beforehand. However, line marking companies can be hired to use specific line marking machines to create these lines.

As you may have guessed, that means the line marking paint also has some special properties that can help enhance someone's experience on the road. For example, chemicals added to line marking paint can make it impervious to heat, cold, and water and be anti-skid and reflective.

 

2. How do you mark a line?

Surface or line marking machines are the first thing you're going to need for marking lines on a roadway. The type of machine you'll rely on depends on what the line marking companies are offering and the type of line marking paint that is required. For example, thermoplastic line marking paint needs a special kind of machine.

Generally, the process of line marking requires line marking companies to:

  • Survey the site
  • Clear the area of any debris
  • Smooth the road and repair any existing cracks or holes
  • Calculate the area to be marked and the space and distance between the markings
  • Hand-mark the area to be lined
  • Apply the line marking paint with the right line marking machine
 

3. What type of paint is used for line marking?

The most popular type of line marking paint is thermoplastic road marking paint. It's also known as 'hot melt marking paint' because the paint is poured in its powder form. The attached hot melt kettle, which is part of the line marking machine, heats this powder up, melts it down, and then applies it to the road surface in one seamless roll. As the paint powder cools, it actually transforms into a hard polymer line.

The end result is a durable, wear-and-tear-resistant marking that also happens to maintain reflectivity in dark conditions. Many countries that hire line marking companies as part of public works contracts also require that the line marking paint include anti-skid enhancements.

Thermoplastic line marking paint is generally made of:

  • Synthetic resin, which makes the coating fast-dry and adhere strongly to the road's surface
  • Additives that make it resistant to pollution and fading
  • Pigments like white and yellow (though they can be produced in any colour)
  • Packing materials, which enhance wear resistance and brighten the colours
  • Colourless and transparent glass beads, which reflect light back and greatly improve line marking visibility
