    [introtext] => Hi-Lite removed nearly 3 million SF of built-up algae at Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport & Technology Center (BKV) in Western, Florida. BKV battled with algae, which was affecting the visibility of their airfield markings.

"Concrete surfaces at BKV looked like asphalt", pointed out Airport Supervisor Rob Mills. Hi-Lite used a 20,000 PSI waterblaster along with AEROGREEN 4025 Mold, Mildew, and Algae cleaner to eradicate algae and clean the surface. After the surface was cleaned, Hi-Lite re-installed markings using an airport paint truck and standard waterborne paint. Hi-Lite's experts mention that the work done by "Hi-Lite caused zero disturbances to BKV operations and the cleaning was so effective it seems like BKV got a new airfield." BKV expects to be mildew-free for the next 10 years.

For professionals in the airfield industry, markings covered by any type of contaminants are considered nonfunctional markings. BKV was in desperate need to bring their markings back to life without painting on top of mildew, which could lead to paint build-up and FOD. Surface preparation is the most important activity to consider when repainting. Surface preparation will definitely guarantee a better bond between the surface and the paint. Removing old layers of paint is a best practice that will protect the integrity of the pavement and diminish the risk for FOD. By removing contaminants such as mildew, airports also reduce the risk of runway incursions and excursions as mildew is equally or more slippery than rubber under raining conditions.

A cleaner airfield improves the curb appeal of facilities, mitigates danger by allowing pilots to see markings, and slows pavement deterioration. Hi-Lite encourages airport operators to take a proactive approach by simply cleaning and washing markings covered with algae and re-installing markings only in the areas without full integrity of thickness, color, glass bead embedment and tolerance dimensions as dictated by regulatory specifications. This proactive approach can provide considerable savings in airports' maintenance budgets and decrease downtime. Mills was pleased with the results of the painting and indicates that "the paint is holding up well and no algae are creeping through." In addition Mills mentions that "It may take another 10 years before we have them (Hi-Lite) cleaned again", "we are very happy," he adds.

Pensacola, Markings Cleaning Through Florida DOT Statewide Contract

    [introtext] => Hi-Lite removed nearly 3 million SF of mildew from two runways at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), restoring reflectivity readings to well over 600 mcd for markings that were four years old.

The cleaning of airfield markings through waterblasting or chemical processes is revolutionizing the industry. Mildew, rubber, and other contaminants such as oil and dirt can cover markings making them a hazard for safe airfield operations. Airports experiencing situations like these have the risk of danger and loss of pilot situational awareness. Cleaning markings instead of painting has several benefits. For once, reflectivity is enhanced, the risk of paint build up and FOD is eliminated, and the substrate underneath the markings is protected from aggressive paint removal methodologies. More airports are taking advantage of the multiple cleaning systems available to restore markings back to life.

In the case of Pensacola Regional Airport, markings of approximately four years old were re-vitalized under the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Contract for Runway and Taxiway Markings in 2012. Hi-Lite's experts point out: "A lot of times, we can just come in and do the pressure washing and it restores the reflectivity, the brightness, of the markings and you don't even have to paint, and why paint when you can clean and save airports money and downtime." With the constant reductions in airfield maintenance budgets, airports have to be creative today more than ever in how they perform their routine maintenance activities while still remaining in compliance with Local, State, Federal, and International regulations. Dunn explains that cleaning markings save airports significant dollars without sacrificing safety and aesthetics.

In addition to cleaning markings, Hi-Lite has had a long history of working at Pensacola International Airport. Some of the mobilizations were due in part to the FDOT contract. The FDOT contract is a unique contracting method in which the unit pricing for painting, paint removal, rubber removal and other maintenance services at airports is pre-established by the State from a single qualified contractor who is able to win the bid based on price and quality standards. The program has been a success in the State of Florida benefiting around 130 airports by offering fixed unit pricing and avoiding them from time consuming bidding processes. Dan Flynn, Assistant Director of Operations from PNS adds: "We used Hi-Lite Markings, for two years, for rubber removal and airfield painting services. They did a wonderful job."

Markings Cleaning Through Florida DOT Statewide Contract [numOfComments] => 0 [text] => Hi-Lite removed nearly 3 million SF of mildew from two runways at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), restoring reflectivity readings to well over 600 mcd for markings that were four years old.

The cleaning of airfield markings through waterblasting or chemical processes is revolutionizing the industry. Mildew, rubber, and other contaminants such as oil and dirt can cover markings making them a hazard for safe airfield operations. Airports experiencing situations like these have the risk of danger and loss of pilot situational awareness. Cleaning markings instead of painting has several benefits. For once, reflectivity is enhanced, the risk of paint build up and FOD is eliminated, and the substrate underneath the markings is protected from aggressive paint removal methodologies. More airports are taking advantage of the multiple cleaning systems available to restore markings back to life.

In the case of Pensacola Regional Airport, markings of approximately four years old were re-vitalized under the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Contract for Runway and Taxiway Markings in 2012. Hi-Lite's experts point out: "A lot of times, we can just come in and do the pressure washing and it restores the reflectivity, the brightness, of the markings and you don't even have to paint, and why paint when you can clean and save airports money and downtime." With the constant reductions in airfield maintenance budgets, airports have to be creative today more than ever in how they perform their routine maintenance activities while still remaining in compliance with Local, State, Federal, and International regulations. Dunn explains that cleaning markings save airports significant dollars without sacrificing safety and aesthetics.

In addition to cleaning markings, Hi-Lite has had a long history of working at Pensacola International Airport. Some of the mobilizations were due in part to the FDOT contract. The FDOT contract is a unique contracting method in which the unit pricing for painting, paint removal, rubber removal and other maintenance services at airports is pre-established by the State from a single qualified contractor who is able to win the bid based on price and quality standards. The program has been a success in the State of Florida benefiting around 130 airports by offering fixed unit pricing and avoiding them from time consuming bidding processes. Dan Flynn, Assistant Director of Operations from PNS adds: "We used Hi-Lite Markings, for two years, for rubber removal and airfield painting services. They did a wonderful job."

    [introtext] => Hancock International Airport (SYR) at Syracuse, New York is Hi-Lite's home airport and the airport Hi-Lite crews and personnel use to most to travel the world. "Over the years, we have forged a long-lasting relationship with the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority" mentioned Rhonda McNeely, VP of Sales & Marketing who has facilitated all of Hi-Lite's contracts at the airport since Hi-Lite started offering airport maintenance services.

From small jobs to main runway projects, Hi-Lite considers SYR its valuable partner and attends any needs the airport has. "When SYR calls, Hi-Lite delivers" mentioned Calvin McNeely, Executive Vice-President of the Hi-Lite Group of companies. Indeed, SYR airport and the destination options it offers has impacted Hi-Lite's global expansion in the last decade. "As a company located in Northern New York, we consider SYR our connection to the world", mentioned Kevin Parker, International Project Manager who travels to places as far as Doha, Qatar and Dubai, U.A.E. by connecting flights from SYR to JFK and then to DOH or DXB. For Bub McNeely, VP of Project Management, who manages Hi-Lite's largest contract to date at Atlanta, the world's busiest airport, SYR offers a direct connection to ATL.

Brian Lawton, Project Coordinator from the headquarters office in Adams Center oversees all projects at SYR. In a recent gate project, Lawton put together a local crew of Airfield Maintenance Specialists and executed a gate project at the airport. "We want to let SYR know we are here to help whenever they need us", said Lawton on the last project he managed.

As Hi-Lite understands the impact airports have on rural communities it is committed to supporting SYR as a quality provider of airfield safety maintenance services. Hi-Lite considers SYR its true valuable partner and looks forward to maintaining the strong relationships they have built over the years.

Home Airport [numOfComments] => 0 [text] => Hancock International Airport (SYR) at Syracuse, New York is Hi-Lite's home airport and the airport Hi-Lite crews and personnel use to most to travel the world. "Over the years, we have forged a long-lasting relationship with the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority" mentioned Rhonda McNeely, VP of Sales & Marketing who has facilitated all of Hi-Lite's contracts at the airport since Hi-Lite started offering airport maintenance services.

From small jobs to main runway projects, Hi-Lite considers SYR its valuable partner and attends any needs the airport has. "When SYR calls, Hi-Lite delivers" mentioned Calvin McNeely, Executive Vice-President of the Hi-Lite Group of companies. Indeed, SYR airport and the destination options it offers has impacted Hi-Lite's global expansion in the last decade. "As a company located in Northern New York, we consider SYR our connection to the world", mentioned Kevin Parker, International Project Manager who travels to places as far as Doha, Qatar and Dubai, U.A.E. by connecting flights from SYR to JFK and then to DOH or DXB. For Bub McNeely, VP of Project Management, who manages Hi-Lite's largest contract to date at Atlanta, the world's busiest airport, SYR offers a direct connection to ATL.

Brian Lawton, Project Coordinator from the headquarters office in Adams Center oversees all projects at SYR. In a recent gate project, Lawton put together a local crew of Airfield Maintenance Specialists and executed a gate project at the airport. "We want to let SYR know we are here to help whenever they need us", said Lawton on the last project he managed.

As Hi-Lite understands the impact airports have on rural communities it is committed to supporting SYR as a quality provider of airfield safety maintenance services. Hi-Lite considers SYR its true valuable partner and looks forward to maintaining the strong relationships they have built over the years.
