City Linemarking: Pioneers in Durability and Excellence with Cold Applied Plastic (CAP)
Over the past five years, Cold Applied Plastic (CAP) has swiftly risen to prominence as the preferred choice for line marking, and for good reason. Offering remarkable durability and a unique resistance to yellowing, CAP has become a go-to option for road and pavement marking projects.
One of CAP’s most compelling attributes is its low-maintenance quality. It can be directly applied over existing thermoplastic or temporary paint, eliminating the laborious process of removing prior coatings. This not only streamlines the application process but also saves time and resources.
The distinguishing feature of CAP is its curing process, which is driven by a chemical reaction. Unlike thermoplastic, which relies on heat for adhesion, CAP forms a chemical bond with the substrate. This bond is achieved through the careful mixture of two components, known as part A and part B. Once applied to the surface, CAP exhibits rapid hardening, typically occurring within a short timeframe, ranging from 15 to 30 minutes.
