    • Critical to keeping communities safe, road markings help drivers everywhere get to their destinations without worry. We so often see them, but hardly ever think of how they got there in the first place.

      Many of the arrows, colors, lines, and shapes are actually brought to life with 3M products, using some of our most powerful and reliable adhesive technology. Unlike the glass beads typically found in conventional pavement markings, 3M all-weather markings feature tough, long-lasting microcrystalline ceramic beads that are purposefully designed to maximize roadway safety.

      Our stick-on roadway markings offer a whole host of advantages that other roadway paints and markings can’t match. Crews can deploy 3M road markings instantly, helping to keep traffic flowing, and reducing congestion on crowded highways. And, our markings last up to twice as long as other roadway paints, and are able to better withstand extreme weather conditions like rain, heat, and snow. Whatever the environment, 3M science is working hard to help keep our roads safer, day after day.
