Pavement Marking Tapes
Permanent and Temporary Markings
SWARCO‘s pavement marking tapes are cold-applied, preformed materials that are supplied in continuous rolls of various lengths and widths. Pavement marking tapes have an advantage over sprayed or extruded materials in that they do not require expensive application equipment or experienced operators to install, and require no drying or curing time. While tapes have a higher initial cost than other materials, the service lives are usually superior to most other materials making them a cost-effective choice in locations with high traffic.
Pavement Marking Tapes are currently exclusively available in the USA.
