Constant tire scuffing, sweeping and rubber removals have a tendency to polish runway surfaces. Major airports in the United States and Canada specify the Skidabrader exclusively to bring their runway texture back into compliance. These runway surfaces are abraded bi-directionally. It promotes surface drainage that allows tires to make contact with renewed texture of the existing pavement. The new surface allows water to escape in every direction, creating improved friction results.
Currently dozens of military and major international airports use our services as a compliment to the rubber removal process to maintain required friction readings. Eagle, utilizing Skidabrader and its sister company Cyclone Technologies can provide both the abrading process and ultra-high pressure water process as part of a maintenance contract ensuring the safest possible runway conditions.
