When To Choose a Plastic Base vs. a Rubber base for a Delineator

Rubber bases are made from 100% recycled tire rubber and used for portable channelizers, delineators, and for temporary use applications. If need be, they can be surface mount glued down (you can use epoxy or butyl pads). They are typically more expensive than a plastic base.

Urethane bases are not considered a portable delineator, as they are attached to the road surface using butyl pads, A-B epoxy resin, bituminous hot-melts or bolted to the surface. They are mostly used for permanent applications where product durability is important, but also used for temporary use.

Plastic Bases are also not considered a portable delineator, as they are attached to the road surface using butyl pads, A-B epoxy resin, bituminous hot-melts or bolted to the surface. The make for an inexpensive, work zone delineator that is reboundable, but not made to withstand repeated high speed. They are typically used in work zone products for lower speed, construction zone, parking lot, and temporary applications. Plastic bases can be used for permanent installations in protected areas. They are surface mounted for glue down or bolt down (you can use epoxy or butyl pads or red headed concrete bolts). Plastic bases are typically cheaper than rubber bases.
