Inlaid Road Markings

Unlike traditional surface-applied road markings, which are painted or taped onto the road surface, inlaid road markings are installed by embedding materials directly into the road surface. These markings are typically used for long-lasting and durable applications, and they are commonly found in high-traffic areas, such as highways, city streets, and airport runways.

We Specialize In:

Inlaid long line markings

Inlaid long line markings are a specific type of inlaid road marking used to create continuous lines on roadways, such as centerlines and edge lines, to guide traffic and provide important information to drivers. At Infinite Road Marking, we create continuous road lines, like centerlines and edge lines, that stand up to the test of time. These embedded markings improve road safety and organization.

Inlaid intersections

Inlaid intersections are a specific type of road design feature that involves the use of inlaid materials to create well-defined and durable pavement markings at road intersections. Intersections are critical points in the road network where multiple roadways intersect or come together, and the use of inlaid materials helps improve safety and guide traffic in these areas. Inlaid intersections typically include various road markings, such as crosswalks, stop lines, turning lanes, and other pavement markings to manage the flow of traffic and enhance safety.

Various material options

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is a fast-curing material used for inlaid road painting. MMA offers the advantage of being the most durable pavement marking material available and the capability to be applied in colder conditions than thermoplastic and paint. This is due to its chemical curing process. Infinite is widely recognized as an industry leader in all forms of MMA application. Vast experience and success on complex infrastructure projects (PMHl), close relationships with material producers, and continual investment in cutting-edge equipment, ensures that Infinite excels when installing MMA.


Thermoplastic is a durable and highly visible material commonly used for inlaid pavement markings. Known for its quick curing time, reflectivity, and versatility, thermoplastic is cost-effective over time due to its durability and minimal maintenance requirements. It is environmentally friendly with low VOC levels, making it a popular choice for various road marking applications.

Advantages of Inlaid Road Markings

The fundamental strength of inlaid pavement markings lies in their integration with the road surface. Unlike surface-applied markings, which can be susceptible to damage from snowplow blades, abrasion, and exposure to harsh winter elements, inlaid markings are fortified by their position within the pavement. This embedded placement acts as a shield, safeguarding the markings from the direct impact of snowplow blades and preventing them from becoming dislodged or worn down over time.

Moreover, inlaid pavement markings exhibit remarkable resistance to winter weathering. The materials used in their construction are engineered to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, freezing and thawing cycles, and exposure to salt and other de-icing agents. As a result, these markings maintain their vibrant colors and sharp edges, ensuring optimal visibility and adherence to road regulations throughout the year.


They are less prone to wear and damage from traffic, weather, and road maintenance activities.


The embedded materials can provide high reflectivity and visibility, enhancing safety, especially at night.

Reduced Maintenance

Inlaid markings typically require less frequent maintenance compared to painted or taped markings.

Our inlaid pavement marking service:

Infinite Road Marking’s inlaid pavement markings represent a superior solution for road and highway infrastructure, offering a level of durability and protection that goes above and beyond conventional surface markings. These markings are expertly embedded into the pavement itself, creating a seamless, long-lasting, and resilient solution that can withstand the harshest winter conditions, including snow plowing and the rigors of winter weather.

Inlaid standard paint markings involve cutting grooves or recesses into the road surface and then applying the paint into these recesses. This creates a flush or slightly raised surface, depending on the application method.

In regions where winter weather is a constant challenge, the longevity of inlaid pavement markings is especially valuable. These markings remain clearly visible and functional throughout the winter season and beyond, ensuring that road users have reliable guidance and information even in adverse conditions. Snowplows can pass over them without causing damage, and the markings continue to serve their essential role in maintaining road safety and organization.
