Exhibiting last year at Inter Airport Europe 2019, ASI Solutions Ltd was founded in 1997 in the UK as a domestic operator focused on developing and providing innovative and sustainable solutions for airport runways. Namely, the preservation, repair and recycling of asphalt and other bituminous bound surfaces.
Since then, the company has expanded to become an international player in the asphalt infrastructure market and in recent years has developed a strong network of distributors and partners spanning a substantial part of the industrial world.
Despite this growth, airport infrastructure works are still a core part of ASI’s business, and their teams are experienced in providing the engineering skills and technologies necessary to deliver sustainable asset management solutions.
To date ASI has successfully completed projects of over 2 million m2 on the world’s major civil and military airfields including Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Alderney, RAF Brize Norton, Sydney, Brussels, Lisbon, Keflavik, Beijing, Phnom Penh, and Antigua.
RHiNOPHALT®, from ASI Solutions Ltd is a unique preventative maintenance treatment for asphalt surfaces. Preserving, protecting and extending the life of valuable asphalt infrastructure such as airport runways, taxiways and aprons it has proven to be an effective and innovative method of preserving asphalt infrastructure all over the world. Offering substantial operational and environmental benefits as well as long-term cost savings to all parties involved.
You see, as the bitumen ages, the asphalt loses its flexibility and becomes more brittle and this leads to an increased prospect of ravelling and pothole formation. This surface aggregate loss is a major safety concern to all airport operators as it poses a severe FOD risk.
Depending on weather conditions, RHiNOPHALT® can be applied day or night and will cure within four hours. Tanker application can be used for areas ranging from 10,000m2 to 60,000m2 and the whole process of preservation, grip recovery and re-lining can be carried out in shifts of as little as 5 hours. Productivity is much improved over the conventional surfacing treatments.
Rather than adding a new layer of surface, RHiNOPHALT® penetrates into the top of the existing asphalt surface course and seals in essential oils and resins, whilst at the same time improving the binding and waterproofing properties of the existing surface. As a result, the treated surface will become more resistant to abrasion, stone loss, water ingress negating the need for Dewatering, and the severe ageing effects of extreme temperatures.
Best utilised as a preventative maintenance measure in asset management, it extends the operational life of the asphalt pavement and removes the large costs of resurfacing and repair work. It can also be used to extend the life of older pavements to allow for planned replacement and to arrest aggregate loss.
By reducing the disruption caused by reactive repair works and delaying the large costs of resurfacing, ASI Solutions products and approach are helping airport operators benefit operationally and financially, allowing more time to focus on future investment and development and less in maintenance and worry.
