Removing Traffic Markings? Here is the Difference Between Scarifying vs. Erasing

When pavement markings are removed with a traditional grinder or scarifier, the surface is left with deep pavement scars:

However, using the SMITH LNX8 Eraser will only leave a smooth, bevel-edge smooth finish that removes the stripe, not the road:

When it comes to scarifying vs. erasing, discover how you can get a waterblast-like finish without the high costs associated with waterblasting.

Plus, SMITH Rotary Erasers will not damage the road or substrate, unlike waterblasters.
