5 Features of the Best Line Marking Paints

People who would like to undertake a line marking project on their parking lots without involving an expert need to take great care when selecting line marking paint so that they select a product that will serve its intended purpose for long. This article discusses some of the key features that you should consider when selecting the best line marking paint to use on your commercial property.

Reflective Ability

Select line marking paint that is highly reflective. Such paint will be visible during low-visibility situations, such as during the night when motorists are using the parking lot on your commercial property. Paint manufacturers usually add glass beads to line marking paint in order to increase its reflectivity. The glass bead content of the paint is usually indicated as a percentage. Select the paint with the highest glass bead content.

Fast Drying

You should also identify line marking paint that dries quickly once it is applied. Such quick-drying paint will save you from the inconveniences that come from using slow-drying paint to mark the parking lot. For instance, that parking lot can be used shortly after the line marking paint has been applied. 

Skid Resistance

Pick line marking paint whose formulation includes an additive that prevents vehicle tyres or shoes from skidding on that paint. This information is usually available on the packaging of the line marking paint. High skid resistance will protect you from any liability claims that can result from accidents due to low skid resistance.


Some line marking paints degrade quickly when they are used outdoors. Such paints may not have included an ingredient that protects the paint from being damaged by ultraviolet radiation. Choose line marking paint that has thermal and light protection mechanisms listed among the features of that paint. Such paint will be able to withstand being damaged by the fluctuating temperatures outdoors. Furthermore, direct sunlight will not easily damage that paint.

Adhesive Ability

Some line marking paint requires the user to apply a special primer on the surface before the paint can adhere effectively. Other paints don't need those special primers. It is better for you to refrain from buying paints that require the application of primers. Such paints may increase the cost of the project due to the additional materials that you have to purchase.

It is advisable to buy all your line marking products from one supplier so that compatibility is assured. Otherwise, a high-quality paint that meets all the requirements above may still deliver poor results.
