We will create and help implement a long-term pavement preservation plan for all of your airport pavements:

Reduced Down Time

Penetrates and maintains grooves and PFC

Eliminates FOD and seals out moisture

Reduced Cost

Longer life-cycle means less reinvestment

Pavement elasticity is preserved

Postponed Reconstruction

Halts oxidation, weathering, 
aging making pavements last and last.

Green Circle Certified

GSB-88 ® penetrates into the pavement matrix and becomes part of the surface of asphalt, and is sensitive to our delicate environment.

Research shows that if airports maintain asphalt pavement [via preservation] every 3 to 5 years, they can get 20+ years out of a runway, if not 30.

Life Extension of Airport Asphalt Pavement

Times have changed and we cannot afford to follow the old methodology of build it and 
forget it. Instead, we need to preserve our existing infrastructure investments well into 
the future. Projects that preserve the existing pavement are good investments from a public policy perspective.

Gee Asphalt Systems was the general contractor on a seal/paint project (FAA) for our two runways at GBD. As the Airport Manager and sponsor, I found that Gee was very responsive to every single pre-construction and safety consideration on this project. This involved a high degree of coordination with the airport authority and operation. Very customer-service oriented, the application crew did an outstanding job of project application. Also, I appreciated their strict adherence to application pre-requisites such as pavement temperatures, daylight hours available, and application rates. As a result, the seal application was accomplished in minimum time, and with minimum impact on airfield safety."
