Landing strip safety is critical for airport operators and carriers. The build-up of rubber on runways accumulated during landings creates an unsafe landing environment.
Our dustless Ultra-High Pressure water blasting process uses only clean water — no chemicals or additives minimizing the impact to the environment. Rubber deposits, paint, and thermoplastic cannot withstand the effective force of the needle-sharp water jets. We will recover all debris, which eliminates the risk of it being sucked into and damaging jet engines. The work will be completed between flights making the runway immediately available.
KRSI also removes paint stripes, landing markings, and curing compounds at any airside facilities such as taxiways, parking aprons, ramps, runways, and maintenance areas. Our dustless UHP process will recover all debris, which eliminates the risk of it being sucked into and damaging jet engines.
UHP water blasting is effective in numerous runway surfaces. This includes concrete, porous friction course asphalt, and plain asphalt. KRSI’s extensive experience ensures the equipment is used properly so that the surface will retain the integrity and grooving of the substrate material.
