Making Your Mark on Pavement

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BackyardExteriorFlooringInterior

Walker-Moody Construction specializes in asphalt maintenance, including pavement striping. After a parking lot has been paved, maintained with a maintenance product such as a sealcoat or has just been cleaned, consider re-applying pavement markings.

Directional arrows and lines for parking stalls wear down and fade over time. Reapplying those markings with Liquid Thermoplastic will ensure that they remain bright and last twice as long. Walker-Moody Construction is now installing Liquid Thermoplastic, a product from SealMaster Hawaii.

Conventional parking lines are striped at a wet film thickness of 15 mils; Liquid Thermoplastic can be laid down much thicker at 30-35 millimeters. Glass beads also are recommended for optimum reflectivity and night visibility. This product is cold spray-applied but features hot-applied thermoplastic performance. This is a high performance, highly durable, environmentally friendly, 100-percent acrylic water-based paint. Dry to no-pick-up time is typically five minutes.

New asphalt surfaces should be allowed to cure sufficiently, which is normally about four weeks to ensure that it is free of light oils on the surface. If a sealcoat, such as MasterSeal Ready-to-Use sealer or OptiPave Plus, is installed, it should be allowed to cure for at least 24 hours prior to applying traffic paint. If new pavement markings are being applied to existing concrete or asphalt surfaces, they should be clean and free from all loose materials and dirt to allow good adhesion.
