Runway Friction Testing and Rubber Removal


Tocumen International Airport in Panama is the hub for flights to and from the US, Caribbean, Europe and Asia, and has seen significant expansion over recent years.  Friction testing and rubber removal is a critical requirement for this busy airfield.


The global team at Roadgrip airports work on maintaining the runways year round and have a permanent presence at Tocumen airport.  We continually keep the airfield safe and clean in accordance with ICAO standards, which means all hands on deck and all the latest equipment used for mold and rubber removal from the runway, mould cleaning and airfield painting.


To meet international standards, we regularly carry out runway friction testing around the clock to keep safety at the highest level – and to avoid any disruption to flights.  We are experts in analysing the friction properties of the runway, which enables us to recommend maintenance remedies before any risk occurs.
