Manufacturer Demands the Best Line Marking Material


A major UK car manufacturer required a line marking material; they are commissioning their new production line. 

A major UK car manufacturer required a reliable and high-quality line marking material as they were commissioning their new production line. With the automotive industry’s stringent requirements and the manufacturer’s commitment to maintaining minimum downtime, they sought a line-marking solution that would meet their specific needs.

As expected from an automotive manufacturer, the highest quality standards were paramount. The line marking material had to be durable, requiring no maintenance during its service life. It also needed to be available in a wide range of colors aligned with standard six sigma practices. The product had to be produced in specific shapes, as the line marking systems around the production line may change.

While these demands may seem challenging, our PermaRoute® line marking material was purposefully designed to meet the exacting requirements of high-end applications like automotive production. All the car manufacturer’s stringent demands were taken into account during the product’s design phase. We proudly announce that we have started supplying this production line, with PermaRoute® line marking material being phased into the construction process.

We have received the designs and converted them into die-cut tools to ensure the line markings meet the car manufacturer’s specific shapes. This allows us to produce line markings in the required sizes and shapes. Our precision die-cutting capability is accurate to 0.1mm, ensuring the line markings fit perfectly into the designated areas.

The PermaRoute® line marking material addresses the car manufacturer’s requirements in several ways:

  1. Exceptional Durability: Unlike traditional line marking paint that can flake or chip, PermaRoute® is an extremely durable heavy-duty line marking product. It maintains its integrity even in demanding automotive production environments, minimizing the need for touch-ups or repairs.
  2. Expansive Color Range: We offer a wide range of color options for PermaRoute®, including the ability to produce any Pantone or RAL color based on the quantity required. This ensures that the line markings align with the car manufacturer’s color coding system and six sigma practices.
  3. Custom Sizes and Shapes: PermaRoute® is available in wide widths of up to 1168mm, allowing us to create line markings in any required shape. Our precise die-cutting capability ensures accurate and consistent shapes, meeting the car manufacturer’s specific design requirements.
  4. Easy Application and Removal: PermaRoute® is engineered to be strong and durable, yet it can be removed without flaking or leaving behind fragments like thin line marking tapes. Traditional line marking paints and resins often require labor-intensive mechanical removal, and even then, the original finish may not be fully restored. With PermaRoute®, the car manufacturer benefits from an efficient and clean line marking system that can be easily changed when necessary.

Case Summary

In summary, the car manufacturer faced the challenge of finding a heavy-duty line marking material that was durable, available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and shapes, and easy to apply and remove. Our solution involved recommending and providing PermaRoute® line marking material, which perfectly met their demands. With PermaRoute®, the car manufacturer now enjoys a clean and efficient line marking system that can be changed as needed, providing flexibility and ease of maintenance.
