Enduramark Provides Long Lasting, Durable Cement Based Line Striping

Enduramark is a new approach to pavement marking solutions. Enduramark is a polymer-modified cement providing significant advantages for line striping over current material technologies. It provides an exceptional bond to both asphalt and concrete and is unaffected by heat, cold, and UV degradation, and provides unparalleled durability. Enduramark does not require new equipment technology and only requires relatively inexpensive modifications to current pavement marking equipment and trucks.

Although cement-based, Enduramark is flexible, non-brittle, and accepts and retains all reflective media, providing long-lasting retro-reflectivity. Innovative application techniques allow for increased wet night retro-reflectivity.

Enduramark can be applied to existing thermoplastic and MMA markings. It is applied at 35-40 mil using existing paint and thermoplastic guns.

Enduramark pavement marking solutions has over 3 years of exceptional performance in heavily snow-plowed environments.

Enduramark comes in powder form and only requires the addition of water. It is non-hazardous and all equipment is cleaned with water, providing a reliable solution for achieving high-quality, durable line striping.

Enduramark striping on roadways for Michigan DOT

In 2019 PK Contracting out of Michigan installed Enduramark striping on several roadways for Michigan DOT.  The markings were recessed into the pavement to help minimize the effects of snow plowing. After (3) years, you can see that there is zero bead loss. Very Impressive!

ENDURAMARK® LineGuard™

Pavement Surface Coatings, in conjunction with our network of partner installers, have recently developed a new and innovative technique for applying our state-of-the-art Enduramark pavement marking system in areas of the country that are prone to snow plowing. Conventional pavement markings’ retroreflective beads are damaged or dislodged by snowplows and tire wear resulting in compromised performance in early stages of the pavement marking life especially in wet conditions.

The engineer’s and design personnel at PSC along with its affiliated partners have developed a new approach to protecting the pavement markings from tires and plows. By taking advantage of Enduramark’s extreme durability, the LineGuard® application process places the Enduramark at a width of 8 inches for six-inch lines and 6 inches for a 4-inch line and installs a “rail” of one inch on the outside of both sides of the line. The combination of a rail on each side of the line creates an “inlaid” line between the rails. Vehicular tires and plow blades ride on the rails and the line and beads are not impacted. The system is designed to have the exposed beads, less than 15 mils (0.015 inch) below the height of the rail maximizing the retroreflective aspects.

If the line ever loses it performance, the Enduramark can be applied on top of the existing Enduramark without any preparation. It is PSC’s belief that the system will have exceptional durability and longevity and if restriping is required the entire system can be reapplied or the pavement markings and beads can be installed between the rails. If excessive rail wear is realized the rails can be reapplied independently.

Enduramark is a polymer modified cement that is ideal for line striping services, and consequently is not subject to the natural degradation of the epoxies, thermoplastics, MMAs, paints, tape or polyurea’s. Its durability is unequaled in the pavement marking industry.
