Runway Rubber Build-up Removal

Derubberization is the process of removing the rubber deposits left by aircraft tyres from airport runways. This helps to improve landing grip (friction between the plane tyres and the road) thus reducing the chances of runway overruns and sliding off the runway. Derubberization is a crucial part of routine maintenance of airport runways. We use the award-winning waterblasting system from waterblasting technology to handle our airport maintenance projects. This state-of-the-art waterblasting machine has the ability to remove rubber buildup and old markings from asphalt and concrete without causing damages to the runway surface. This ensures that the runway markings and the runway itself last longer.
