We have a mix of thermoplastic lines, line marking aerosols and chlorinated rubbers (including Ennis Flint's Cataphos), which are ideal for temporary or permanent line marking on a variety of surfaces.
Line marking isn’t restricted to cycle lane, motorway and main road safety instructions, as it’s often used on pavements and pedestrianised zones, parking spaces to designate specific parking jurisdictions, outdoor grass football and rugby pitches, indoor and outdoor sports and athletics facilities, and major offshore platforms. As continuous research and development ensures new and better materials are used all the time, line marking paint is now available in lots of formulations from leading manufacturers including Blackfriar, Coo-Var, Ennis-Flint and Rust-Oleum.
Blackfriar Professional Line Marking Paint is a great all-round road line paint with a quick drying finish for asphalt and bare concrete.

Coo-Var offers an acrylic road line paint and a low odour road line paint. Coo-Var Acrylic W/B is an acrylic resin that means tools can be simply cleaned with water. It takes a little longer to dry, at one hour, but is user friendly and can be applied to most surfaces. Coo-Var Low Odour is solvent based and is great applied directly onto wood floors, tarmac, sealed concrete and non-porous substrates.
Thermoplastic line marking is one of the most popular kinds of road marking. It gives a great balance between cost and longevity and outperforms paints in terms of increased retro-reflectivity and durability. They also don’t contain VOC solvents, making them more environmentally friendly. In warm climates, the thermoplastic can last around six years, although increased exposure to very cold temperatures can mean it needs replacing more often.
Thermoplastic Lines 603 is an easily applied preformed thermoplastic road marking, perfect for cycleways, carparks and road markings. With a professional finish, it’s very easy to apply with basic equipment and leaves a consistently even coloured finish. It can be driven on within minutes after it has been applied and is one of the most durable systems available.
Prismo road markings include Ennis-Flint Prismo Flexiline, billed as the ‘perfect solution’ to line marking roads, airports and playgrounds, among other environments. Using hot applied thermoplastic, Prismo Flexiline results in exceptionally crisp, clearly edged markings and is available in preformed lines, numbers and symbols. Application needs only one person with a gas torch and it can be walked and driven on very quickly after it has been applied.
