RejuvaSeal®

Up to 80% of all coatings failures at airfields around the world can be directly attributed to inadequate surface preparation, which affects coating adhesion. The result is markings that become unsafe, aged, faded, brittle, cracked, worn and worst of all, hard for pilots to see.



The professionals at Hi-Lite Airfield Services know that proper surface preparation is the most important thing you can do to assure the quality of your paint job and the safety of your airfield.

Understanding Marking Issues

The technicians from Hi-Lite Airfield Services, LLC recognize the fact that proper surface preparation is the key to achieving the maximum paint adhesion to any surface. Surfaces that have been improperly prepared or cleaned can compromise the paint’s bonding ability. Paint adheres to the contaminants, such as cure compound, fuel/oils and mold, rather than the surface itself, leading to premature failure.

Curing Compound Removal

Curing Compound Removal

Current airfield specifications call for the removal of all visible curing compound material from the pavement. New concrete appears white when the curing compound is present. When it is properly removed by Hi-Lite's hydroblasters or shotblasters, the concrete appears gray or tan. If there is still evidence of the "white" curing compound after the first pass, our equipment operator will pass the machine over the area until the curing compound is removed and the area is gray or tan.

Proper Surface Preparation

Proper Surface Preparation

Airfield markings are exposed to all of the worst elements: rain, heat, extreme cold, chemicals, heavy loads and/or infrequent use, ultra violet light, algae and other stresses. Each element can individually stress the markings on the pavement, lowering their visibility. Removing the existing layers affected by such elements, before laying down new markings, gives the fresh coating a better surface on which to bond.
