Durable Pavement Markings for All Road  Safety Marking Needs

Complete Streets

Transportation authorities around the world are placing a greater emphasis on improving safety for vulnerable road users and pedestrians and are finding Color-Safe® methyl methacrylate (MMA) durable pavement marking is an ideal solution. By creating visual awareness for all road users, Color-Safe® can play a key role in helping reduce pedestrian, bicyclist, and motor vehicle crashes, creating bright, long-lasting pavement markings and helping to bring greater safety to cities and communities.


Color markings are being used around the country to delineate bike lanes, bus lanes, crosswalks, and pedestrian safety areas. As more cities and state municipalities are creating complete streets and anticipating the addition of autonomous vehicles on the roads, the sustainability of the material used for color lanes needs to be considered. Markings must remain vibrant to be a safety feature!


Transpo’s Color-Safe® MMA marking material is not only one of the most durable markings on the market, but it can be applied in cold weather, extending the marking season. Due to their high durability and color stability, MMA road markings cost less in maintenance and material costs over the extended life cycle of the markings.

Application Flexibility

Municipalities, education institutions, airports, industrial, and other sectors use Color-Safe® pavement marking for its high visibility colors that increase vehicle and pedestrian awareness, also helping to advance Vision Zero strategies and policies, which require multi-disciplinary approaches. Such a diversity of sectors using Color-Safe® can do so because of its application flexibility.
