Airport runways and parking aprons handle heavy traffic and all kinds of weather. Inevitably, the wear begins to tell, with cracks and joints needing sealing to keep airplane traffic running smoothly and safely on the ground. A new caulk has been developed by Ultimate Linings Ltd that resists jet fuel spills and harsh weather conditions to help ensure smooth landings and cut down on costly maintenance.
UL Caulk-JF is a non-toxic polyurethane calking sealant that is applied using a straightforward pneumatic gun and could help address the wear and tear problems faced by the 19,000+ runways around the United States. After a costly development project, the scientifically developed product has achieved Federal specification SS-S200E, the necessary ‘green light’ that certifies it as a safe solution for airfield applications. The caulk has been made available in a variety of packaging sizes, ranging from a 750ml cartridge to a 250 gallon tote.
