Plural Component (cold plastic) Traffic Striping and Pavement Markings
Plural component has been used as a pavement marking material in Canada for over a decade and has been the most common pavement marking material used on roadways for stop bars, cross walks and arrows.
The popularity of plural component markings can be attributed to several factors which include:
Relatively low cost based
Lasting more than 7 years

Painted Traffic Striping and Pavement Markings
Traffic paints are the oldest and most widely used pavement marking materials in existence. Paint is a common pavement marking material used by MTO today. Paint still remains the most inexpensive of all pavement marking materials, although its cost has increased slightly as new formulations have been introduced. Paint is almost exclusively used for long-line applications, often in maintenance projects, and is currently the only long-line material used. Traffic paint is available in a solvent-based, water-based and acetone-based and each has its own attributes.
Preformed (Tape) Traffic Striping and Pavement Markings (Removable Temporary Marking Material)
Preformed tapes are cold-applied, preformed pavement marking materials that are supplied in continuous rolls of various lengths and widths. Preformed tapes have the advantage over sprayed or extruded materials because they do not require expensive application equipment or experienced operators to place, and they require no drying or curing times. While tapes have a significantly higher initial cost than most other materials, the service life is good and is easy to remove. Preformed tapes are frequently used for transverse markings, but are often used for longitudinal lines in high-traffic areas. Tapes are highly durable and abrasion resistant and are often used in Kingston with the most severe traffic conditions.
