Reusable material is thicker than the competitors
All stencils are made of 1/10" thick semi-rigid plastic and can be used over and over again. Our letter stencils are better than the competitors because the material is specially formulated for pavement stencils so it weighs a little more and lays flatter. This helps prevent under-spray. This is not an off the shelf plastic, the pavement stencil material has a specific resin, produced at exact specifications, so it is virtually waveless and has a very smooth surface. These properties make the stencil lay flatter and clean up easily.
These are the best stencils designed for professional pavement stripers
The 29 piece letter stencil kit consists of one of each alphabet A - Z with a 3" wide top and bottom border, one spacer and two end pieces. The side borders are 2" which allows for normal spacing when numbers are laid side-by-side. The character is 24 inches high and its stroke (where paint hits the pavement) is 3.0" wide. The width of the character varies but it averages 16.0 inches wide. The monospace letter style is Pavement font which has been designed and field tested by the Federal Highway Administration for maximum legibility.
How to apply paint
Paint can be applied by using spray equipment, brush or roller. You can get spray equipment from Graco Sprayers. Sherwin Williams Dura Clad or Pervo Paint Ultra 9000 offer a conventional dry (non-heated application) water-based paint intended for marking interior and exterior curbing and lanes on driveways, sidewalks, factory floors, parking lots and airport runways. We do not recommend oil based paint. Please consult their paint specialist for you application.
Storage and maintenance
Stencils are made for easy clean up. When paint is dry just bend stencil or hit against hard surface and paint will flake off easily. The alphabet stencils are typically shipped rolled and should be layed flat in a warm location over night to get any 'memory' curl out. It is best to store them flat and without any weight on it. There is some UV protection in them but direct sunlight or the back of a pick-up cab would cause them to crack.
This letter stencil kit comes with a one year manufacturer's guarantee against tears or rips. Product life is typically 3-5 years under normal use.
This item is Made in America which reduces transportation costs, supply time and its environmental impact and keeps American jobs.
