Airports have their own unique issues with concrete. In addition to pedestrian walkways, concrete dust from the surface of a ramp or taxi-way can do catastrophic damage to jet engines. Ice melting and de-icing chemicals also damage the concrete. Protection from this damage has been nearly impossible until now.
CreteDefender’s ability to prevent chloride penetration and harden the surface solves these major issues. The costs involved in replacing even a small section of concrete at an airport are high. Testing by the engineers at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport concluded that CreteDefender adds at least 13 years to the useful life of a concrete taxi-way. That translates into substantial savings and a substantial increase in safety for your airport.
Benefits at Airports:
- Elimination of concrete dusting
- Elimination of chloride penetration and damage from ice-melting chemicals
- Increased useful life of concrete
- Increased safety for aircraft and pedestrians
