In short, yes.

Extra prep work can be done such as proper cleaning of the surface before the correct product is applied. This may involve pressure washing to remove as much dirt and debris as possible & concrete priming prior to painting. A sealant can be added after the paint has dried to provide an extra layer of protection.

Longlife linemarking simply refers to the product being used. Main road line marking is not done in paint, its completed in a hot or cold thermoplastic mix which is applied much thicker than paint and offers a much longer lifespan. Bus stops and bike lanes are done in a special OMNI GRIP or equivalent which provides a textured gritty finish as well as the classic green/bus lane red look.

Prior to the linemarking product drying a specially designed glass reflective bead can be added to give the line marking both an anti slip and light reflecting finish.

We always recommend leaving all linemarking done in paint at least 24 hours to properly cure, this allows the chemicals in the paint to properly adhear and bind to the surface underneath. After about 30 minutes to 1 hour the paint is tac dry.

If longlife linemarking is being carried out the dry time is much much quicker, if cold applied we allow 15 minutes to 30 minutes, if applied hot dry time can be as quick as 5-10 minutes.

On average most paint line marking has a lifespan through normal wear and tear of about 3-5 years this depends heavily on a few factors.

  1. Prep work done prior to painting
  2. Cleanliness of surface
  3. Level of moisture and dirt debris on the surface
  4. Age of the surface

Painting car park lines involves the following steps:

1. Surface Preparation: Begin by thoroughly cleaning the surface to ensure proper paint adhesion.

2. Marking Preparation: Measure and mark the desired line positions using tape or chalk, ensuring accuracy and alignment.

3. Paint Application: Utilize a line marking machine or spray paint to apply the chosen paint evenly along the marked lines, ensuring consistent coverage.

4. Drying Period: Allow the paint to dry completely. This is important before moving on to the next step.

5. Tape Removal: If masking tape was used, carefully remove it once the paint has fully dried.

6. Curing Time: Ensure the paint has undergone the appropriate curing time before allowing vehicles to drive over the newly painted lines. This helps preserve the longevity and quality of the markings.
