Road Markings

Visibility for drivers. Guidance for vehicles. Safer roads for everyone.

  • 3M’s retroreflective technology has raised the bar on visibility and durability in road markings for the modern world. As we strive to reach zero deaths, we will continue to evolve with changing modern technology to help keep roads safe, day or night, wet or dry.

Read the Wet Reflective E-book to understand why choosing the right road markings matter. See the difference between wet retroreflective and non-wet retroreflective road markings and the importance of having visibility in dark and rainy conditions.


Benefits of High-Performing Pavement Markings

Three important characteristics for road markings.

At 3M, we are working to continuously improve and enhance technologies to deliver products that bring families home safely. Here are three key characteristics that set our pavement markings apart from the rest.

    High Contrast

    Contrast—the difference between the road marking and the background—is a key characteristic that machine vision (optical cameras) systems associated with ADAS, LDW and Lane Centering use to identify and classify markings. Contrast markings combined with wider marking allows for detection at longer distances relative to narrower, non-contrast markings.

  • ensure safer roads with road marking tape by 3m

    To ensure that machine visions systems will continue to accurately detect your pavement markings for years to come, they need to offer stable, persistent performance. This means the pavement markings must retain their luminance, contrast, and wet retroreflectivity over time.

  • It’s critical that machine vision systems and human drivers can detect road markings in all conditions—including when it’s raining and the roads are wet. Road markings that deliver continuous wet retroreflectivity can be reliably seen in wet conditions.
