Hi-Lite Airfield Services, LLC, the leading global Airfield Markings and Maintenance Contractor, has perfected a method for removing Mold, Mildew and Algae from asphalt and concrete airfields.
Hi-Lite and the Blastrac 2-4800 DH shot blaster are setting new standards of excellence for airfield surface preparation. This impressive equipment provides a cost effective and environmentally-friendly method for texturing concrete and asphalt surfaces.
Current airfield specifications call for the removal of all visible curing compound material from the pavement. New concrete appears white when the curing compound is present. When it is properly removed by Hi-Lite's hydroblasters or shotblasters, the concrete appears gray or tan. If there is still evidence of the "white" curing compound after the first pass, our equipment operator will pass the machine over the area until the curing compound is removed and the area is gray or tan.
Proper paint removal in an integral part of the process in achieving quality, long lasting airfield markings. Using top-of-the-line hydroblasters and/or shotblasters, Hi-Lite removes the existing layers affected by...Other contaminants that can affect coating adhesion include;
Airfield markings are exposed to all of the worst elements: rain, heat, extreme cold, chemicals, heavy loads and/or infrequent use, ultra violet light, algae and other stresses. Each element can individually stress the markings on the pavement, lowering their visibility. Removing the existing layers affected by such elements, before laying down new markings, gives the fresh coating a better surface on which to bond.
