He said, “All pavements are different. Asphalt airfields and in particular, runways are subjected to entirely different stresses and performance criteria than roads and highways and are susceptible to degradation from several sources. In today’s environment, the practice of remove and repair has become impractical from the standpoint of cost of environmental impact and time.”
“For runway preservation, we offer the most advanced technologies and processes as there can be no error on runways. AGSG is a specialized composition created jointly by us and our global partner “Raynguard” for runway preservation. As a protective coating, it preserves and extends the life of asphalt surfaces. It seals surfaces by eliminating FOD generation and reduces the deterioration rate of asphalt-based pavements. It is a non-toxic, cost effective treatment that provides a weather-proof coat to existing pavements to prevent their deterioration. AGSG has been used successfully for runway restoration across the globe, including one of the India busiest airport (CSMIA) Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.”
Adding further on Preserving Roads he said, “As regards with the micro-surfacing solutions for pavement, The “Rayner Equipment Systems (RES) designs and manufactures top-of-the-line machines for asphalt pavement maintenance”. He informed that Microsurfacing is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement. It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction. This is a cost-effective method to renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities. This preventive maintenance process protects the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation. With the use of RES Roadsaver II microsurfacing creates a protective layer which preserves the underlying structure and prevents the need for more expensive repairs in the future The product is exclusively sold and serviced in India by AIC Infrastructures.”
He also added that for any pavement a proper drainage is must. “AIC is focussed on their vertical of Aviation infrastructure and related technologies. They represent GATIC an UK based principal which is a global leader in engineered Surface Water Drainage and Access Covers. AIC also exhibited “GATIC” at EXCON. They have a wide range of Aircraft loading Gas and Air Tight Inspection Covers, heavy duty access covers and gratings, Slotdrain for surface water, drainage system, channel drainage and linear drainage.
