Benefits of the POSSEHL asphalt coating

Profitability

FL8SAFE guarantees high reliability and profitability for military airports. FL8SAFE can easily handle the high demands placed on runways and landing strips by military aircraft. The extremely hot blasts from jet engines cause less damage to the coating than to conventional runways and landing strips. FL8SAFE thus ensures a longer service life and less maintenance.

Safety

FL8SAFE improves the grip of runways and landing strips and reduces braking distances – even when it is wet or there is slush and frozen hoar frost. The directional stability of aircraft in crosswinds is significantly improved. Thanks to its high durability and heat resistance, FL8SAFE reduces the risk of dreaded ‘foreign object debris’ (FOD), where parts of heavily used coatings can come loose and cause damage to engines.

Operational benefit

Reliability is particularly important in the military sector. Sometimes, a runway or landing strip needs to be available in a matter of minutes. FL8SAFE ensures that runway and landing strip downtime can be kept to a minimum. This improves the flexibility and functionality of military airports. FL8SAFE also reduces the rubber abrasion left in touchdown areas of runways by around 40 per cent, which minimises the amount of cleaning required.

Environmental protection

FL8SAFE helps to reduce environmental impact, as the coating is particularly low-maintenance during winter. Its structure ensures that icing is slower to occur and ice can be cleared away more quickly. The use of de-icing agents can be reduced by up to 85 per cent. FL8SAFE is recyclable, has been free of nonylphenol since 2022 and contains an ever-growing amount of renewable materials. POSSEHL Spezialbau has been producing its special asphalt coating without tar since 1996.
