Asphalt Striping

Diversified Asphalt Contractors does asphalt striping, also known as pavement marking or road marking.  It involves applying lines, symbols, and other markings on asphalt surfaces to convey information, regulate traffic, and enhance safety. These markings are essential for guiding drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists, and they play a crucial role in maintaining order on roadways and parking lots. Here are some key aspects of asphalt striping:

Types of Markings

  • Lane Lines: These solid or dashed lines separate traffic lanes and indicate the proper path for vehicles.
  • Crosswalks: Striped lines across a road to designate pedestrian crossing areas.
  • Stop Lines: Solid lines indicating where vehicles should come to a stop, typically at intersections.
  • Arrows: Used to indicate the direction of travel in a particular lane.
  • Symbols and Words: Various symbols and words, such as “STOP,” “YIELD,” and “NO PARKING,” are used for traffic control and regulation.

  • Paint: Traditional paint is commonly used for asphalt striping. It is durable and provides good visibility.
  • Thermoplastic: This is a type of plastic material that is heated and applied to the asphalt surface. It offers durability and reflects light for improved visibility.
  • Epoxy: Epoxy-based paints are known for their durability and resistance to wear and tear.

Regulatory Standards

  • Asphalt striping is governed by various regulations and standards set by transportation authorities. These standards ensure consistency and safety in road markings.


Reflective materials may be incorporated into the striping to enhance visibility at night or in low-light conditions.

Striping Equipment

  • Striping Machines: Specialized machines are used for applying paint or thermoplastic materials evenly on the asphalt surface.
  • Stencils: Stencils are used to create specific symbols or words during the striping process.


Over time, asphalt striping may fade or wear due to weather conditions, traffic, and general wear and tear. Regular maintenance and repainting are essential to keep the markings clear and effective.


Some projects may require custom markings for specific purposes, such as parking lot layouts, sports courts, or special event areas.
