Making The Perfect Line

    How exactly do you create that perfect 4 inch line that can make a parking lot look spectacular? Obviously you just need to spend thousands of dollars on a top of the line striping machine and BOOM you have a perfect line. That is why I have been completing parking lot striping dfw area for years. If you think that is all it takes you  might want to keep your receipt so you can get your money back. There are a lot of parking lot striping companies near me and they all will agree.

    Okay, okay, so what does it take to make a perfect line. Well there isn’t just one answer to this question or everyone that striped would have a perfect line. Anyone that has been striping for a few years knows not everyone has a perfect line…. Like not even close. Making a perfect line starts off with you having experience on your machine. Until you have at least striped over 1000 lines you don’t know your striping machine yet. What is there to figure out? Its just wheels air and paint! You have to know the little things about your striping machine like what pressure lays the best line. Does my machine coast one way or the other? Am I using the correct tip? What kind of paint works best for my striping machine? 

     The type of paint you use can make a huge difference. I have used water based, oil based, alkyd, chlorinated rubber, latex, blah blah blah. Through my experience I noticed that each paint reacts differently to my striping machine. If you are willing to spend more for a perfect line I suggest trying out many paints and how much to thin them… if needed. If you are new figure out your machine and after years you will begin to see that line improve as you begin to improve. Let me know if you have any suggestions I am continuously learning in this industry. Check out some great parking lot striping fort worth tx. CALL 254-434-8259
