Triflex Cold Plastic

Triflex Cold Plastic is a cold liquid applied, exceptionally fast curing, heavy duty marking system. Originally designed for highway use and used extensively on German autobahn, it has also been used for more than 20 years in the UK to add heavy duty white or coloured, thick layer, anti-skid markings to car parks, service yards and other heavily trafficked areas. Utilising the most advanced PMMA resin technology allows this 2 component solution to rapidly cure even at very low temperatures while removing the health and safety risks associated with hot applied thermoplastic solutions. The system far outperforms thermoplastic on concrete and is particularly suitable for HGV service decks and areas trafficked by trucks and fork trucks such as loading areas.

Triflex Cold Plastic is simple to apply, extremely hard wearing, highly tested, fully compatible with a wide range of substrates including direct application to asphalt, making it the ideal rapid solution for car parks, service areas, shopping centres, retail parks, airports, offices, roads, highways and other applications needing a quick turnaround, ultra-durable solution.

Versatility and compatibility

Triflex Cold Plastic is fully compatible with a wide range of substrates, and far outperforms thermoplastic solutions on concrete and similar substrates.

Totally cold applied

There is no risk from hot works during installation as all Triflex materials are applied in a totally cold liquid form, curing to create a tough, durable solution that lasts.

Ultra rapid curing

Exceptionally fast curing, Triflex products enable areas to remain open during installation, limiting access restrictions and unnecessary disruption. Installation can be carried out all year round and the system still cures quickly at temperatures down to 0°C.

Extremely tough and durable

Triflex Cold Plastic is resistant to ponding water, road salts, petrol, diesel, brake fluid, engine oil, battery acid, de-icing and approved cleaning products. The system is able to withstand high mechanical loads including HGV traffic on service yards. Triflex Cold Plastic has been used on German Autobahn for more than 25 years, and has demonstrated an effective service life of more than 20 years in high space change retail car park environments in the UK without replacement.

Weather resistant

Triflex Cold Plastic is weather and UV resistant and will not break down when exposed for the long term to direct sunlight.


Triflex Cold Plastic does not contain solvents or isocyanates and poses no fire risk during installation.

Tactile Markings

Triflex Tactile Markings

Primarily used on train platforms and pedestrian crossings Triflex Tactile Markings are used to provide a warning signal for people with visual impairments of possible danger. These prefabricated tactile markings are formed of fully cured PMMA resin tiles, and are bonded to asphalt and concrete substrates using the Triflex Cold Plastic marking system. Once fully cured they provide ribs or raised dots for textured signalling.
