Rubber Removal

RETEX uses Cleanstar technology for ultimate high-pressure water blasting. Rubber is seamlessly removed without using harsh or toxic chemicals. Water waste recovery completes the effective, eco-friendly outcome.

Retexturing & Rejuvenation

Road pavements are rigorously restored using RETEX’s Cleanstar technology. High-pressure blasting corrects wheel rutting, flush bitumen and spray seal. Skid resistance and macro texture depth are reinstated for long-term resilience.

Friction Testing

Using ICAO and CASA approved SARSYS testing units, RETEX carries out certified, real-time electronic reporting of airport runway friction properties. Quick and efficient measurement of an entire runway yields results within hours.

Audio Tactile Rumble Strips

Rumble strips save lives. RETEX’s specialist machine, OzRumble, cuts audio tactile grooving into road pavement surfaces. Self-propelled, it operates in all weathers, meaning less downtime on site due to bad weather.

Latest Project Fulton Hogan  Western Australia

Airport rubber removal projects

Fulton Hogan awarded a large road retexturing project to our Western Australian crew, requiring high pressure water blasting to remove flush bitumen and restore the road condition along a major heavy vehicle route. Requiring a 2-3mm surface macro-texture, water blasting was identified as the most successful and proven methodology to achieve these specifications. Extending the life of the pavement and eliminating slip hazards in wet conditions are major benefits of road retexturing. Utilising our efficient Stripe Hog technology allowed us to undertake the rejuvenation works and successfully deliver the project against time and budget constraints.
