Life Cycle Performance & Savings with
AirMark® pavement markings.
The application advantages and value of AirMark® are pronounced in multi-colored markings that are typically time and labor intensive when using other marking materials.
While the initial cost of preformed thermoplastic is much higher compared to waterborne paint, the durable lifecycle performance of AirMark can result in a savings of about $5,000 for a single Surface Hold Position Sign Marking like the one shown in this photo.
Typical repainting cycles range from 6 months up to 2 years. AirMark can last 8 to 12 times longer than paint.
The real value of AirMark is recognized when considering the costs of mobilization, runway closures, administrative costs, and application costs every time there is a need to repaint.
AirMark pavement marking down 5 years & counting...
that’s performance and savings.
In August 2006, this Surface Hold Position Sign Marking was applied at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
This original pavement marking has withstood over 75 snow alerts and hundreds of broom and plow passes.
It is still in service without any foreseeable requirement for reapplication after 5 years.
