Safer in extremes

Few surfaces can be more demanding of safety than modern airfields, yet massive jet aircraft can be crippled by even small foreign objects (FO). Military and civil airfields are often surfaced with a specialist (Marshall Asphalt) material which is very dense and not susceptible to damage by the heavy wheel loads and jet blast of modern aircraft, preventing any generation of FO. Marshall Asphalt can also be grooved to provide additional paths for drainage of water on runways ensuring safe take-off and landings for the largest and fastest of aircraft.
