Temporary Removable Marking Tapes
Temporary pavement markings are an important element of traffic control plans and provide drivers with clear and defined travel paths around and throughout work zones. Removable Tapes are used to direct traffic around and through construction area work zones. This special tape has a pressure sensitive backing, which provides a secure bond to the asphalt or concrete surface. Temporary Removable Tape can be removed without the use of heating or using specialized equipment, thereby leaving the roadway surface undamaged. According to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) temporary pavement marking for long term work zones should perform as effectively as permanent pavement markings.

Permanent Pavement Marking Tapes
As its name implies, Permanent Pavement Marking Tape is not designed to be a temporary fix or decoration. The tape will hold fast onto highways, streets, intersections and other high traffic areas, making it ideal for your long-term marking requirements. There is no need to wait for the tape to set or dry, it can be driven over or walked on almost immediately after installation. Some permanent tapes can be inlaid into new asphalt surfaces therefore providing a more durable marking in cold weather climates where snow conditions may be present. Between its quick set up, durability, reflectivity and peel resistance, our permanent pavement marking tapes are convenient for workers, drivers and pedestrians alike.
Uses of Permanent Pavement Marking Tapes
Pavement marking tape suppliers and contractors employ this tool in many ways, including:
- Long Line Road Markings
- Pedestrian Crosswalks
- New Construction Projects
- Tapes are also Available in Various Preformed Symbols and Legends
