Hot applied and best suited to tarmac surfaces, it can be used on concrete but should have a tack coat (primer) applied first to offer greater adhesion. The wear rate is good but can be prone to chipping or cracking in colder weather on non-tarmac surfaces and the depth of the line can become too thick due to too much remarking. This can be avoided by removing the existing line and beginning again with fresh application to keep the depth to a minimum but this does add to cost. The winter can affect thermoplastic lines especially concrete. In winter months, when frost sets in, it can 'blow' the line from beneath as the damp expands because of freezing. This is the most cost efficient product with the best all round performance but there are other options should you decide to spend a little more. It should not be used on block paving because of movement and cracking. As with any line - it will fail in the joints and may then fail in other if that happens. If a surface has joints or pot holes there is no product which will stay in place although this is a great all round road marking solution, The curing time is approximately 1.5 minutes for thermoplastic making it the fastest available, but any tack coated thats been pre applied takes up to 15 minutes to cure prior to line application.
