During the reconstruction of the runway of the airfield of Ulyanovsk “Vostochny” the works on hydrophobization of the concrete pavement are being carried out.
Hydrophobisator is a special chemical solution that is intended to process building materials in order to protect them from the damaging effects of moisture.
The application of a water-repellent agent has a positive effect on the following runway characteristics:
– it improves water resistance and, as a result, the resistance of the pavement to atmospheric and chemical influences;
– it increases frost resistance and resistance to anti-ice reagents;
– it simplifies the removal of oil and fuel stains and other contaminants from the surface of concrete;
– it maintains the uniformity of appearance.
