Air travel is continually growing and it is becoming clear that the sustainable maintenance of this infrastructure is fundamental to the smooth operation of efficient airports.
Asphalt preservation on runways, taxiways, hardstandings and access roads provides a recognized maintenance solution to airport asset managers. RHiNOPHALT® reduces the risk of performance failure due to oxidization and extends the operational life of the asphalt surface.
Very large areas can be treated within maintenance windows, by a tanker in a single pass operation. Surface macro-texture is maintained and grip is restored by sweeping to recover micro-texture.
This works well with maintenance programming, and the quick curing time means that the markings can be applied in the same closure window.
Any loose aggregate particles pose a significant Foreign Object Debris (FOD) risk to aircraft. RHiNOPHALT® seals the surface, locking the aggregate matrix together and improving the waterproofing.
You can see the benefits of extending the life by one, two, three years. You’re pushing that massive spend further and further into the future.
Airports Director, Dyer & Butler, commenting on the trial at Heathrow Airport
Since RHiNOPHALT® has been applied to the airfield, stone loss has been reduced to virtually nothing.
Based on the results, we would highly recommend the use of RHiNOPHALT® to preserve and extend the life of asphalt surfaces.
Airfield Operations Manager, commenting on the Manston Airport preservation
RHiNOPHALT®, without question, has arrested the surface deterioration and has been a total success.
Senior Engineer, Airbus, commenting on the Hawarden Aerodrome preservation
We’ve been working with Allied using RHiNOPHALT® material... it’s a great innovative product that allows the asphalt surface to be preserved, without having to take it out of service for the kind of time that you would with a traditional resurfacing operation.
Head of Aerodrome Operations, Birmingham Airport, commenting on the trial at Birmingham Airport
