Roadgrip Airports have been busy undertaking the removal of rubber and mold from the airfields of multiple airports across the central American country of Panama.

We have been active in airside maintenance in Panama for several years now, carrying out ultra-high-pressure (UHP) water blasting to effectively remove the build-up of rubber and mold from the runway, taxiway and aprons,  as well as painting airside pavement markings and conducting friction testing for safety. Most recently, we have completed works on the two runways at Tocumen International airport, Panama Pacifico, Rio Hato and David Enrique Malek International airport.

Using the UHP method means that even deep layers of rubber and mold can be removed without damaging the structure underneath – and without removing the markings underneath (although the pressure can be adapted to remove old markings where necessary).

The video and images show just how effective the blasting is in removing the mold and negating the need for repainting at Tocumen International Airport. This can be a cost-effective approach for airfield maintenance.

Roadgrip undertake maintenance and safety improvements for airports around the world. Visit Roadgrip Airports to see the breadth of work we do or contact us for a quick and competitive quote.
