A wide range of striping materials is available for pavement-marking programs. The four basic systems--traffic paints, thermoplastics, preformed tapes, and field-reacted materials--are described as well as the various materials used in each system. Important material properties are discussed, including cost, durability, methods of installation and maintenance, visibility, and handling safety. New York State's pavement-marking policies are described. Information on striping costs, material use, and results of durability studies is provided based on experience in New York with most currently available marking materials.
