Airport Markings

Innovative Products For Safety And Orientation On Airports


Markings on airports are a very economical contribution to the safety and orientation on airports, not only for planes on taxiways and runways but also for ground traffic vehicles. We integrate all factors that result in best-performing
airfield marking systems, including  marking materials,  reflective glass beads and  application know-how. 

Airports increase their safety by adopting quality systems for runways, taxiways and aprons.


KEY ATTRIBUTES OF HIGH QUALITY AIRPORT MARKINGS

RETROREFLECTION

Our systems offer excellent retroreflection and night visibility on dry and wet surfaces due to innovative and clean SWARCO glass bead blends (various particle sizes, low and high index).

INNOVATION - MORE CONTRAST

Coloured granular glass can be added to our marking systems as needed to adjust the shade of colour. The resulting marking symbols and lines appear much more vivid and rich in contrast.

DURABILITY

Our products have been successfully tested by independent bodies for resistance against fuels, deicers, engine oils and hydraulic fluids and excel in their resistance to kerosene.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

By choosing the right solutions from our wide range of products, complemented by various glass bead blends, excellent functionality and abrasion resistance of marking systems on airfields and runways, taxiways and aprons is guaranteed.

SURFACE BONDING

Apart from their stipulated product-specific characteristics, markings need to have sufficient adherence to the surface to avoid engine ingestion of loose marking material. The right choice for an optimum and economical marking system for the different areas depends on airport specifications and other prerequisites.

CERTIFIED

Our marking systems have been tested and approved by the German Federal Institute for Material Research and Testing in regard to colour standards according to DIN 5033, assessment according to ICAO – Annex 14 – Aerodromes and STANAG 3711.

HIGH-GRADE AIRPORT MARKING MATERIALS

In addition to our high-index airport beads we also manufacture a complete range of paint and other marking products
in compliance with FAA and Federal specifications as well as EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).



PLUS9BEADS – HIGH-INDEX AIRPORT BEADS – REFRACTIVE INDEX OF 1.9+


The specially developed glass composition of high-grade raw materials are made exclusively for airports. Our high-index airport beads with a refractive index of 1.9+ and retro-reflective values up to 1500 mcd/m2*lx making them ideal for the most challenging marking requirements.
SWARCO plus9beads, in conjuction with high-grade airport marking materials, deliver 5 times better visibility compared to conventional microspheres and respond to the landing lights of airplanes.
