  • Fast and efficient stamped asphalt installation means minimal traffic disruption.
  • Durability means low maintenance.
  • Repairs can be made with minimal disruption.

TrafficPatternsXD™, offers fast and efficient installation, skid and slip resistance, and unprecedented wear resistance and minimal maintenance.

Performance-based features:

Fast Installation:

1. The sheets of material are positioned on the non-stamped asphalt surface.
2. The material is heated until molten.
3. Corundum is dispersed liberally across the material surface to embed the anti-skid elements while material sets
4. A 3/8” grid stamps a pattern into the material surface and gently through to the top layer of the asphalt.
5. The finished product is a brick-like, high-performance crosswalk, built to last and look great; an economic investment in safety.

High Skid/Slip Resistant: The dispersement of corundum while the material is hot allows the anti-skid properties to embed properly into the material as it sets.

Enhanced Durability:
  • Designed for high-traffic crosswalks and traffic calming surfaces
  • Stands up to extreme use and wear
  • Provides optimum wear in adverse conditions
  • Snowplow friendly

Accessibility: Although the material is stamped to create the look of bricks, it does not leave a bumpy, rigid feel as with pavers. The installation of TrafficPatternsXD™ results in a pedestrian and wheelchair-friendly surface.

  • Eliminates the maintenance and safety concerns of loose pavers
  • Repairs can be made quickly with minimal traffic disruption
