Monte Carlo results are reported for the kinetics of random sequential deposition of mixtures of line segments of two different lengths on the square lattice. It is shown that the rate of late-stage deposition is independent on the type of mixture, but that kinetics is goverened by a novel mechanism, not observed in single-species adsorption. On the basis of our data, a simple expression describing the late stage approach to the jamming limit is obtained.
