Now, since it is petroleum-based, many paints, such as acrylic paint, will not adhere to the asphalt surfaces. Painting on petroleum-based materials like asphalt requires pavement paint. That being said, there are still many choices when it comes to painting pavement, curbs and other areas of a parking lot or roadway. Here’s a look at your choices.
Water-Based Parking Line Paints
Water-based paints are the environmentally friendly choice because they contain no harmful VOCs or other chemicals. They are also the least expensive choice and work well in most settings. Do keep in mind that many areas have put into law that the only paint types that are acceptable are the water-based ones. If your state is one of them, you need not fret about choosing between water or oil based; the decision has been made for you.
Cleaning up water-based paints is far easier. The use of solvents is not necessary to clean up a spill or a paint sprayer after use. Water is all it takes. Not only is it easier to clean up any mistakes or accidents, it is also far easier for you to get yourself clean as well!
Water-based paints can be used in sprayers without fear of clogging. The solvent-based paints you will learn about in a moment can be used in sprayers but clogs are more likely to form. There are ways to protect against clogs of course, if you decide to go that route.
There are regular and fast-dry water-based paints. Even the regular dries faster than the other types, but the fast-dry dries to "no-track" in as little as 2 minutes.
Oil/Solvent/Alkyd Asphalt Paint
Some sources refer to all of these paints as “alkyd-based”. Alkyd is actually a synthetic resin that is used as a binder. It is present to some extent in all of the solvent-based paints. “Solvent-based” is a more accurate term.
Some of the disadvantages of solvent-based paint were mentioned above: more difficult to clean up, more likely to cause clogs and it takes longer to dry. They are also more expensive than water-based paints.
The main advantage (and probably the only reason this type is still on the market) is that solvent-based paints may be more durable. There are two main types of solvent-based paint: regular and high performance.
High performance is used in high traffic areas. For example, the maintenance staff of the NASCAR race track in Daytona uses the high performance type of pavement paint.
The regular type is also referred to as Type I and is used by pretty much anyone in the business of painting pavement, except by those who choose water-based for its advantages.
Don't be discouraged from using parking lot paint types that are water-based for fear that they will not last as long. The thing to remember is that proper asphalt maintenance demands regular sealcoating. With high-traffic parking lots, that will be at least every three years, and more likely every two. Sealant is black, and will erase your parking lot lines, and so you will need to repaint every time you seal the asphalt. Even if the lines were still clearly visible before, they won’t be after sealing!
Discover the Magic of our Asphalt Paint
Navigating a parking lot can be chaotic without clear lines to guide the way. But did you know that using ordinary paint for line striping on asphalt can lead to early wear, fading, and frequent reapplications?

Can you Paint Fresh Asphalt?
Just installed a new asphalt parking lot and wondering if you can paint fresh asphalt right away? It's best to wait a while before painting it.
A newly installed asphalt pavement hardens within a few days, but it can months for it to fully cure. To be safe, wait at least two weeks up to a month before applying water-based or oil-based asphalt.
Look for "Asphalt Paint"
Remember when you are shopping to look for pavement paint, or traffic paint, on the label. No matter which type you choose, they have been formulated specifically to adhere to your pavement. All-purpose paints will not do the job. All your effort will bubble, peel, and wash away in short order when you use any old paint instead of line striping paint.
