New FAA P-608 Specification Calls for Emulsified Asphalt Seal Coat
Proven on 400+ airfields and 300+ runways nationwide, GSB-88® qualifies for AIP funds! The recently published Federal Aviation Administration’s revised Advisory Circular contains new and revised “P” Specs.
One of the new additions is P-608 Emulsified Asphalt Seal Coat which calls for Gilsonite Modified Asphalt Emulsion to be used on ALL airfield pavements, including runways and high-speed taxiways.
Although P-608 is a new FAA specification, Gilsonite Modified Asphalt Emulsions have been used as highly effective airfield pavement preservation tools for 40+ years. Gilsonite is Green Circle Certified and fully compatible with bitumen. As a resin, can be melted into hot bitumen, added during the hot-mix
manufacturing process, or blended into a preservation treatment as a uniform, easily workable product with minimal downtime. Better than a typical sealer that sticks on top and wears away while allowing damage to weaken runway binders, GSB® penetrates through and becomes part of the surface creating a superior barrier against the elements, fuel spillage, and breakdown during daily use. Grooved runways need not be re-grooved, nor are PFC (porous friction course) asphalt surfaces altered.
