Airfield markings play a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and direction of pilots during take-off, landing, and taxiing. For these markings to maintain their effectiveness, it's essential to periodically refresh them. But before applying a new coat, it's critical to remove the old layers. This step not only provides a superior surface for the new markings to bond with but also guarantees brighter, more visible, and long-lasting markings that enhance airfield safety. Moreover, it prevents the hazard of loose paint becoming dangerous Foreign Object Debris (FOD).
