Our preformed thermoplastic is the best on the market and provides many advantages over traditional painted markings. We only use the highest quality and most durable thermoplastic material from Geveko Markings UK, ensuring you get complete value for money and a product that lasts.
Advantages of thermoplastic:
High UV resistance – the colours will stay bright and won’t fade
Flexible and durable – smaller details and curving shapes are possible
Lasts 10 times longer than paint
All of our playground markings are precision water-jet cut. As a result, it allows us to create extremely intricate designs. What’s more, these thermoplastic markings are highly versatile meaning they can be fitted to most surfaces including concrete and tarmac.
We offer a 4 year warranty on our markings, although, we expect them to last for 10 years – up to 10 times longer than paint!
Our thermoplastic markings can also be used for sports courts, line marking, road marking, and car park markings, and we fully conform and work to BS EN 1436 standards.
What is thermoplastic?
Thermoplastic is a plastic polymer material which can be used for many things due to its versatility. When heated, thermoplastic becomes softer, making it easy to manipulate. When it’s cooled, the material hardens, keeping its shape and offering durability.
Thermoplastic examples include acrylic, nylon, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, PVC, and PTFE. Many of these materials can be found in everyday households items as well as being used in other industries.
Preformed thermoplastic is an extremely good material for car park lines and road markings simply because of its anti-slip properties and its long-lasting finish.
Thermoplastic vs Paint
An added bonus of thermoplastic is that it has a high UV resistance meaning its colours will stay bright and won’t fade unlike painted markings. Preformed thermoplastic is also much more durable and weather-proof compared to paint. Markings made from thermoplastic are extremely hardwearing which makes them great for high footfall and high traffic areas. They won’t chip, or flake away!
When you choose to use traditional paint for your markings, you are also choosing to have to repaint them every year or two. However, when you invest in our thermoplastic playground markings, they are guaranteed to last at least 4 years, although it is likely they will last for many more. Check out the difference below!
Our preformed thermoplastic material
We constantly strive to provide the highest quality thermoplastic markings to infant and primary schools, nurseries, corporate organisations, councils, and other sectors.
Our thermoplastic material has a slip-resistant value of 65 and has a built-in glass bead that’s sinks through the material when heated. This means it will be anti-slip throughout its whole lifetime. As thermoplastic markings can be used almost straight away, when installing, we sprinkle on a little extra crushed glass for initial slip resistance.
