What is DuraTherm™?

DuraTherm™ is a decorative asphalt surfacing system designed specifically for high-traffic crosswalks. Tremendous durability ensures DuraTherm™ will maintain it’s bold look for many years. Fast installation means minimal community disruption.


Proven Technology

DuraTherm™ is a thermoplastic material that is inlaid into imprinted asphalt. It is installed flush with the asphalt; as a result, it is extremely resistant to wear caused by traffic.


Installation Process

Installations are performed by Licensed DuraTherm™ Applicators — owners and employees of professional paving and construction companies who are trained and certified by MPS Paving for this specific technology.


In technical terms, a specialized pavement heater gently softens the existing asphalt. Templates, in the chosen decorative pattern, are pressed into the surface. Pre-cut sections of DuraTherm™ are then set into these impressions and the specialized pavement heater is used again to fuse DuraTherm™ to the asphalt surface. The result is a surface that is integral and completely flush with the asphalt.


Applied to: crosswalks, parking lots, medians, roundabouts, pedestrian areas, bikelanes, buslanes,

safety zones, schools, streetscapes and more!


DuraTherm™ Key Benefits



Exceptional durability in high traffic applications results in significantly lower maintenance costs.

Lasts at least 3 times longer than normal thermoplastic. Tyres run on the pavement, not on the product.


Minimal Disruption

DuraTherm™ crosswalks can be installed in less than 90 minutes per lane, resulting in fewer traffic disruptions and significant cost savings.


Smooth Surface

DuraTherm™ produces a smooth surface, which is vibration-free and quiet under traffic.


Highly Visible

Night reflective - increases pedestrian safety.

Bold patterns and colours are ideal for high-visibility and safety-oriented installations.

Skid Resistant

Equal to the asphalt pavement surrounding the product.


Customised Designs

Customised designs can also be used to create a unique look for larger, premium products. All that needs to be supplied is a stylised digital image and the DuraTherm™ technical staff will take care of the rest
