Road marking is done with a thermoplastic paint that comes in granular/ powder form. The granules are melted down using a hot melt kettle heating it to up to 200 degree Celcius. The resulting molten granules/ paint is applied to roads manually or using specialist machines. Since this is a thermoplastic, during hot sumer days, the road marking will taken on a 'stickier' consistency. A plus for using thermoplastic paint makes removal easy- simply heat it up and scrap it off. 

The paint is formed from a synthetic resin, addtives and pigments which gives the reflective and wear-resistant properties as well as fast drying from its molten state. In the past, these paints  resulted in very smooth lines which provided little grip to the car tyres. To combat this issue, reflective glass beads are added for anti-skid performance.
